I used MyFitnessPal – using a food journal statistically helps you lose more weight (you feel guilty having to write down eating all the bad stuff), and the motivation on that site is actually amazing.  People are so, so supportive and really help get your bum to the gym!

I have been taking duromine (curb the hunger-and supervised by my Dr) along with a carb free & caffeine free diet and I have lost 20 kg…and now the more I lose the more active I am becoming.

I have now started swimming and horse riding, which I haven’t done in years because of my weight. I still have another 30kg to lose.

  I am currently doing a My Fitness Pal challenge with my husband and two of our friends. It’s been really motivating to see everyone checking in! Their tools do make it really, really easy to track your foods. You can even type in your recipes and it will add that to your daily totals.

  I also did Weight Watchers, for a similar reason: it made me accountable. I would have to weigh in each week. I loved having bonus points for throughout the week. That way, if I did have a “bad day”, I didn’t feel so bad if I still had those extra points.

Right now I’m doing Weight Watchers online, and I’ve lost over 25 lbs.  I have about a year to lose more weight before the wedding, so I plan on sticking with the program.  There is no way I’m going to be my goal weight before the wedding, but I think I can get abot 3/4 of the way there!

The food diary has been the best thing for me.  Keeps me from having a bite of something or just one piece of DH’s candy (he’s an untreated chocoholic, normal weight, of course).  I know I will have to write it down and that stops me.

I like to excersize so that’s never been an issue.  But, I have severe back problems, so I am always experimenting.  I love Zumba, but it put my spine into flare up mode for weeks, very painful.

I also only drink water or green tea, occasionally iced tea.  No alcohol–huge source of empty calories and not good with my pain meds.  And no diet sodas.

I learned the evils of diet soda from a friend who had bariatric surgery.  Her doctor told her that diet soda stretches the stomach.  Not good.

I’ve dropped 50 lbs this way.  The first 20 came right off when I quit the alcohol.  And I am much older than most of you Bees.

my fitness pal has been really helpful. You could also start a thread asking other bees to contribute their favorite healthy recipes and the amount of calories per serving, etc.
