I actually don't focus on my calories that much. I mean yes, I try to stay within the healthy number, but I focus more on getting the right nutrients and exercising. A healthy body nutrient-wise is going to be able to do more than a body that's got the right amount of calories but isn't healthy. At least that's how I feel. Lots of exercise, lots of water, and the right nutrients for a healthy immune system and bone/muscle structure. Perfect combo!

I was wondering what has worked best for everyone as far as losing weight and keeping it off?

The first time I lost a lot of weight and kept it off was simply through counting calories and exercising! That worked for about 3 years and eventually I got lazy and stopped exercising and I slowly increased my calorie intake and gained everything back. While trying to lose weight the second time around I feel like I tried everything! Nutrisystem, atkins, medifast, weight watchers, fat smash, slim fast, diet pills, phentermine, gosh you name it...I feel like I've tried it. However, none of those seemed to work, and if they did I couldn't stick to it. I think about all the money I wasted...I could probably take myself on a nice vacation with it. I realize now I was looking for the instant quick fix which isn't realistic. So I'm back doing about 1200 cals a day and exercising a ton.


And what hasn't worked for you?
