    I have lost 3 KG in the past month and a half. I have been able to keep it off by eating healthy and walking to and from school most of the time (15 minutes each way). I have been eating unhealthy too, like the past few weekends I’ve been eating non-stop junk food but I’m changing that now because it has caused some problems with my digestive system. I do weight training for 15 minutes every 2nd day and that has boosted my metabolism. Now a days I just eat 70% healthy during the week with the occasional pizza, pasta probably about 4 times a week, chocolate once or twice a week and the rest is fairly healthy. In the past 8 months I’ve lost about 5 Kilo’s…

    Through casual dieting and everyday exercise, I lost 52 lbs in about 4 months.
    Since reaching that amount, I have maintained my current weight for about 7 months and continue to lose about 2-3 additional lbs per month without even trying. I think my body just got involved and took over. I still need to lose about 17 lbs to reach my target weight of 180 which is ideal for my height and age. I am 57 years old and have noticed it is much harder to burn fat and tone-up than when I was young. The body slows down in older folks.

    I changed the type of food I eat instead of the amount, eliminating or reducing high-carb food like breads, pasta, rice, potatoes, soda, and sugar. I now eat chicken, fish, vegetables, and some occasional fruit instead. I eat slower, but continue until I get full.

    For exercise, I would walk and could only walk about 100 yards when I began because I was so out of shape. Slowly the distance and speed increased so I could walk briskly for about a mile after 2 weeks. Within 3 weeks I was walking 5 to 7 miles per day but not all at once. I would walk 1 or 3 miles at a given time and repeat it throughout the day. Eventually, I could walk 5 miles non-stop at a very fast pace. I’m too old to run and my doctor said walking is just as advantageous as running without causing stress to the knees.

    I also parked my car whenever possible and rode my bicycle for local errands.

    You MUST burn 3500 calories more than you consume through eating for every unwanted pound of fat you want to lose. There is no other way. Pills, supplements, acai berry and other programs that promise quick results are scams and do not work.

    I hope this helps.

    I have maintained a weight loss goal for several years. I had an unfortunate event, and I rebounded back, however it was not yo yo style because I was maintaining for several years.

    It is possible to maintain for life. As of right now, I am working towards my fitness and healthy goal of 100 lbs weight loss. 20 lbs in 20 days. Check out my blog below:
