If you don't already Track...Track...Track (this is when weight loss started to be consistent for me) Do it by counting calories or by practicing portion/serving control.
"And pretty much any advice you have."
Challenge your body to perform at your best level.
Get serious about your goals and stop getting in your own way. (life will be much simpler)
Give yourself options in what you eat and how you exercise so you have control over any situation.
Give your body the patience it deserves.
