Well I can tell you that losing weight can be one of the hardest things for some people to do! I realized that every time I actually tried to lose weight, I would actually gain for some reason. This is probably because I would try to eat less which would result in me getting so hungry that I would eventually over eat!

The only thing that has worked for me to be honest is nursing school. I know that sounds ridiculous, but I have been so busy with classes (Monday-Friday:4 classes;2 with labs so it is like 6 classes!) that I don’t even think about food when I am not hungry, instead I only eat when I am hungry. I have lost 15 pounds in 4 months. I am now at a place where I want to be.

Obviously the key to weight loss is burning more calories than you take in, so even without much additional exercise you can still lose weight if you reduce your calorie intake. I know my problem was eating out of boredum/convenience even when I wasn’t hungry. Maybe try taking up a hobby? Go walking with a friend every day? Drink water instead of sugary drinks/diet drinks. Stop when you get full, don’t feel like you have to finish everything on your plate. Funny how after years of trying to lose weight and failing I finally realized that I just used to eat way too much even when I wasn’t even hungry- just because the food was available!
