Jeanne,
I don't know from personal experience, since I have only started taking D3 supplements recently, but you are not the first on to tell me that after starting Vitamin D supplements their weightloss improved.

Once I got on high doses of vitamin D (actually a prescription dose), I began losing weight much more easily. It may have been coincidence, but it was true.

There seems to be allot of hubbub lately about the RDA for Vitamin D being too low, especially since so many of us use sunscreen every time we go out..

I have began taking a 1000mg D3 supplement daily, and will plan to do so at least thru the winter months.

See this link

I've also seen it recommended that we spend about 10 min/day with arms and face exposed to the sun sans sunscreen, in order to get the vitamin D benefits.

Thanks for sharing! One thing also to remember, is when you use sunblock, you also block your vitamin D from the sun, so be sure you take supplements if needed.
