Hi Bee!  I lost 30 lb this year after a couple of years pretty similar to yours!  I am just maintaining my weight right now but think I will want to lose another 10-15 at some point.

 

I lost weight by tracking my food intake and trying to stay at a deficit.  I used MyFitnessPal which was really helpful.  Basically to lose weight, you just need to eat less than you burn.  With that said, I would steer clear of the Dr Oz diet.  Anything like that is just a quick fix – you lose water weight not actual fat – and you’ll gain it right back.

 

Good luck!!!

YES!!! I decided AFTER buying my dress that I wanted to take better care of myself. So, needless to say, I expect some taking in after the fitting (the dress shop won’t charge extra for up to 2 sizes). I started the Whole 30, and am on Day 24. Please feel free to PM me. This is not easy. I’m already thinking about how I will enjoy a treat or two here and there to stay on course, because this is about my bigger picture health. I’m going to the doctor next week and will get an idea of how my numbers have improved. That will be my major motivation.
