I have been on a roll now for 20 days- I've lost 5 lbs so far.... This is what has been helping me... ....I make smoothies in the blender- juice, fruit, lots of ice and yogurt. It fills me up till lunch time. ....I only eat 1/2 tuna salad sand on wheat for lunch .... I make lots of veggies and eat some soup and rice and stuff like that, keeping my entire day of cal under 1500 Also...walk, walk, walk and do keep up with the water. For extra support... I have done a "weightloss tarot reading" for the month... it helps to show me the weightloss challenges for the month and how to avoid them... Silly maybe, but very accurate. Good Luck- -spy

It does take forever, but that's a good thing. It means you're developing proper eating habits that can stay with you for a lifetime. Besides, rapid weight loss is what causes the "floppy skin" effect. When you lose weight slowly through proper diet and exercise, your skin also slowly goes back to where it should be. When weight is dropped quickly (like when gastric bypass is done), leftover skin around the arms and legs doesn't yet have the muscle tone underneath to help define it, so it ends up just hanging there. Many people who have lost hundreds of pounds by way of a successful gastric bypass have later needed reconstructive plastic surgery to remove the skin flaps. How much weight are you trying to lose?

I would agree, it does seem like it takes forever. I have tried many things, from special diets, diet pills, counting calories, ect. But the only thing that really worked for me was eating very healthy and exercise 3 to 4 times a week. You have to focus on the small amounts that you lose, set small goals. Just keep working at it, and you will get where you want to be.
