Thanks everyone!
I have lost another 3 pounds since I wrote this last week.
When I stopped the low fat low cal approach and switched to low sugar low starchy carbs it seemed like the weight came off faster. I eat lean proteins, veggies, and low sugar fruit, and healthy oils.

Another thing I did was figure out how many calories perday I needed to eat if I was at 160, my goal weight.
10 calories per pound=1600 cals. Then I chopped off 400 cals for weightloss at 160 pounds. That is how I arrived at my calorie range of 1200. Considering I was eating 2500-3000 plus cals a day when overweight, it was a drastic reduction.

My advice---Eat like the weight you want to be at goal now.

Thanks everyone!
You can imagine how daunting it is to be faced with 100+ pounds to lose. From July 9 to January 1, 2014 I lost a total of 59 pounds. I reached 199 (onederland) April 4, with a total of 41 pounds from Jan, 14 to July 30, 14.
Everything fits in my closet now, I am in way better health and have so much more energy.

Please do not give up--you can do this! I thought my metabolism was ruined at my age (56) after years if yo yo dieting, but it was not.

Now I have to learn how to dress...I tend to like the more youthful sexier style of clothes. I have an hourglass figure and look best with a belted look; otherwise my hips look big.

Interesting in that it is my waist that everyone notices; as I had huge legs before.

“When you're a beautiful person on the inside, there is nothing in the world that can change that about you. Jealousy is the result of one's lack of self-confidence, self-worth, and self-acceptance.

The Lesson: If you can't accept yourself, then certainly no one else will.”

That's awesome!!

The reasonable man adapts himself to the world; the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.

Following a visit from a childhood friend with a 20 inch waist and needing to use a cane during her visit to manage weight related arthritic pain----I am thrilled to announce that I have lost 100 pounds in a year; with the help of all my friends and motivational tools on Spark People! I started July 9, 2013 at 283; and now am 183. I started out at size 24 and now am a size 14 pant and Medium Top.
I used the treadmill at my work fitness center to walk 3-4 times a week for an hour. I have been following a lower carb approach since January, which really helped control my blood sugar and insulin spikes. I eat mostly protein, vegetables, low sugar fruit, and healthy fats like avocado.
There were a few bumps along the way (vacation eating) but I got back on my regime the moment I got home. I still struggle with evening food snack attacks.
It takes consistency in diet and regular exercise--thats the secret.
I have another 23 pounds to go.
