I have lost 33 pounds. The weight is coming off so slow, but I think this is the best way to lose weight. It has taken 6 months, but the weight is coming off.

My diet is not the fastest way to lose weight, but it works for me. Here is a portion control chart I found with with great tips for weight loss.

It's so easy to misjudge your calorie intake. Most people start on a 1200 calorie diet. I don't count calories but always eat the smallest size of anything I order at restaurants and fast food joints. Also watch what you are putting on your plate when eating at home. Could you be satisfied with less? Be your own Food Police.

We have hundreds of excuses for not exercising. Mine has been the cold weather. It's not cold inside. There are alternatives. A lot of people use dance exercise videos. I will put on some music that I love and dance like no one is looking.
