Hi Tammy. What works for me may not work for you, but what works for me took 30 pounds off in 3 months last year: Intermittent fasting. I relapsed big time and am now back at it and have lost 8 pounds in 2 weeks even though I don't have a ton of pounds to lose. I know for 100% certainty that I can count on a 2-lb a week loss going forward. It sounds like a set up to sell you something but this is absolutely FREE, you do it (or don't do it) at your own pace and schedule, and it's good for your body (reduces risk of disease, increases longevity). It seems hard at first but after the first two weeks it gets much easier and I actually enjoy my fasting days now. This is not the Spark People way, but I don't care. Lowering caloric intake and exercising do NOT work for me at my age. This does. I also exercise because I'm an overachiever (and because it's good for me and it feels good). There's a book called The Fast Diet that explains why intermittent fasting works better than reducing caloric intake alone. You can probably get it at your library but if it's already been checked out, it's worth buying. Good luck to you!!!
