Yeah, weight loss is different for everybody.  For me, downing pasta turns me into the Nutty Professor.

I also hate that I lose fat in my boobs and butt first before other areas.  I had to get new bras after my weight loss and I miss how my pants fit when I had my butt.

*damn, sorry pic is so huge.

If you worked out a lot the first time, it could be that you gained weight from muscle while losing weight from fat, so your weight remained the same.

While I do think that some small changes can make a big difference, I also think it depends on where you are in your weight loss journey – when you approach your goal, you might find that you can’t get away with smaller portions only and 1h of exercice per week; you’ll have to be careful on what you put on that plate as well.

But, in any way, good for you, it’s a good start and no doubt way more encouraging than your first try!

That is weird! Did you lose inches at least the first time you tried? Maybe your body was just replacing fat with muscle.

@luli29: It makes sense – it has to become a lifestyle, and for any change to work it has to be something you can maintain. You’ll hit some plateaus, just make sure that you shift what you eat and your workouts when that happens to boost your metabolism and not lose your motivation. 🙂

I lost 30 pounds a few years ago, and it was mainly through changing my diet in small ways like you are doing now, I didn’t workout back then.  After I lost the weight, I started martial arts classes, met Darling Husband and started to run and bike with him…

Now I work out quite more, but mostly for fun and because it became a real outlet for me. I couldn’t maintain it if it was solely for the purpose of losing weight because I’d stop as soon as the weight came off.
