lol...big red flag is that...I can't even tell what it is!
Listen, if you wanna lose weight - there only one way possible:
Calories in vs. calories out.
How do you do that?
Find out how many calories you should eat to lose weight, and eat in that range. Simple.
Wanna lose faster? Stay in range, and add in some exercise.
How do you know how many a day you eat? You track them (I lost my first 25 via tracking alone. Not one iota of exercise). You track everything, every day. Yeah, it's a pain in the hiney at first - but you quickly build your own data base and learn the shortcuts. I spend less than 5 minutes a day tracking my food. 5 minutes vs. $1300?
Take time and read the boards here - especially this one! Learn what kind of food to eat to stay full (Protein, fiber and good fat). Learn from others what they struggle with. Read others responses to those struggles to get suggestions and tips from other successful members who have lost weight. Read what food to avoid, what to incorporate. Learn what kind of healthy, low calorie, delicious snacks to fill your house with. Browse the 1,000's of delicious healthy recipies.
Read the articles here every day for motivation. Learn about food. Learn what food works for you, and what doesn't. Learn about good carbs, and bad fat, and lean protein.
Reading the boards and 3 articles a day for knowledge, motivation and support? Maybe 30 minutes.
Add in your 5 minutes of tracking time? 35 minutes a day.
Add in reaching out and talking to people via posting? Meeting sparkbuddies that can talk to you everyday to encourage you, or lend a shoulder when you need to vent? Laugh with you when you post about trying to make a new recipe and adding in 1/4 salt instead of 1/4 sugar? PRICELESS!

The best exercise in the world is to bend down and help someone up.
