1. They all got active.
Some of them walked a couple miles a day, some of them lifted weights (the muscle they built helped keep the fat away by burning extra calories), and some of them didn't even take it to the extreme.
Some of the 100 lb losers parked their cars farther away from store entrances so they would have to walk farther to the store. Some took the stairs instead of the elevator.
I read one weight loss story where a lady always unpacked her groceries by walking them into her house one by one.
The best one I read was where a lady lost 100 lbs by getting up every morning to walk in her local mall. She said it was easy to lose weight this way because she would always take a break every 10 minutes or so into her walk to shop.
2. They got rid of all the bad foods
They included more fruits & veggies, baked fish and chicken, more nuts like almonds. They drank more water and less soda.
Some people ate a lot of these weight loss foods without gaining weight because it's these types of foods that promote fat burning and it's foods like alcohol, sugar, and pizza that promote fat gain In the body.
3. They got support.
Most of them got a friend, co-worker, or family member to keep them motivated to stay on track to their weight loss goals. One lady had lost 123 lbs because she had a friend call her every morning to join her for a morning walk.
4. They all tried some stupid weight loss gimmick.
After all the stupid weight loss gimmicks failed for them… They punched themselves in the face with common sense and began to eat less (not starve) and become more active.
5. They took breaks on their weight loss journeys.
To lose a 100
pounds takes time. If you stay on any weight loss program for too long
without any breaks from being active or without cheating every once
Every 100 pound loser had some system to give themselves breaks form their weight loss programs. One guy I read about would treat himself once a week to fast food.

Hi. I'm 24, 25 in January, the proud mom of a 3 yr old brat, and lucky to be married to to my husband. I've been far my whole life. I was always at least 50 to 70 pounds heavier than kids in my school. I hit 200 when I was 12, 210 at 14, 230 from 16 to 19. At the start if my 20th birthday, I kicked myself. I started eating better doing slim in 6 everyday, and I managed to get down to 204 in about 6 months, losing 40 inches. A month after getting married, I became pregnant. My world crashed. I gained 60 pounds. I had my daughter at 21, and 3 years later I am still so lost. I've tried gyms, LA Fitness and 24 hour fitness, but I had no idea what to do and the workers were busy playing with their phones. Please help. I don't want to die.

Im 13 years old , 5.4 feet, and 220 pounds most of my family is the short and big kind but i dont want to be like them and i got type 2 diabetes can you help me lose 110 pounds?
October 15, 2013
How are you? My name is Courtnay Power, I just wrote a book about nutrition and how to avoid Diabetes.
The one big thing about avoiding Diabetes that a lot of people don't know
is that you can avoid Diabetes by not eating too much meat like steak and chicken and especially bacon.
Try replacing your milk (cow's milk with coconut milk)
today I mixed my coconut milk with a bit of cocoa powder
to make it more like chocolate milk
Avoid cheese- I know it is tough
but thins like pizza can be made without cheese
and sometimes can even taste better
if you look up recipes for gourmet pizzas
you can find one.
soy milk and fruit smoothies
are also really healthy

I am 5'9" & I weighed 288 pounds last year. I hated myself so I changed that hate to love & this is how I did it. I went to the gym (6) days per week not matter what. Nothing else was more important than putting myself first for once. It was super hard to even walk on the treadmill at that weight, at first. I was embarrassed that others were looking at me as I huffed & puffed my way through my first few workouts. But, I kept it up. My first day at the gym, I only walked (15) mins, quit & went home. But, I drove back the next day & the next, & each time, it got a little easier. At about (3) weeks into working out, I felt good enough to up the speed on the treadmill & push myself a little harder. I stayed at a speed of 3.0 mph with a slight incline for another several weeks. I committed myself to only the treadmill at the gym. By the end of (6) months, I had lost 100 pounds! I found myself being able to run sprints at 4.8 miles per hr at the (6) month mark! It felt amazing! I was so proud of myself. It took all I had inside to motivate myself to go exercise everyday. Everything else in my life was easier then getting up & going to the gym but I made the effort instead of just talking about it or thinking about it. I live it! What I really noticed before I started working out was that I used to be super out of breath all the time. (i have asthma too) Once the workouts became routine, my breathing got so much better. My energy level went up too. Along with exercise, I also started the Medifast diet. I followed Medifast 100 %, I did not cheat on it like a lot of others will do. I did not add to their program at all. I ate (5) meals per day & ended my day with their required Lean & Green meal. I had Tofu, large cups of greens, (i used Walden Farm's carb-free salad dressings), ate lots of cucumber slices, got rid of all extra salt, & drank lots of water! Water seemed to make the biggest difference with me. I drank half my body weight in ounces of water. I've now maintained my weight of 138 pounds for (1) year! I have the flattest tummy now! Love it! This year, I added CrossFit classes along with running, to build my muscles. Medifast does work if you follow it exactly & not cheat on it. I recommend their program. I recommend daily exercise too along with (8) hrs per night of sleep & lots of bottled water daily.

I have been trying to loose my college weight for about two years now. When I was in college I lost a lot of weight by going to the gym often, but I had a surgery and was unable to continue my workout régime. Now I am 250 lbs, even though I don't look it, the scale doesn't lie. My body is pretty solid I have no loose fat hanging around but I know I am overweight, I'm only 5'3. My work is not very flexible and when I get off work I am extremely exhausted and go right to sleep. I eat the right foods and I walk but nothing works. I have been looking into gyms the ones close to me are to expensive and the inexpensive ones are to far.
What can I do to loose the weight and keep it off?
June 16, 2013
I understand how you feel, without seeing you and looking at your diet it's hard to say. Everyone sys I'm eating the right foods but some times you might not be eating enough.....you need protein to maintain any lean muscle you have and that's what burns fat. Another thing could be you are not lifting enough weight....women think that if I lift weights I will get bulky and that's simply not true .... So don't give up and get to a gym even if your tired you will feel better .....

I am struggling to lose weight - I weigh 253 and would like to be 140. Years ago, I lost 50lbs and was 140. I kept the weight off for a few years, until my fiance called off our wedding. I was very depressed, stopped walking, working out and started eating/drinking whatever I wanted. Now, years later I am stuck in this routine of working out, getting to about 210, hitting that plateau and then giving up. I have degenerative disc disease with pinched nerves and bulging discs. The pain in my back and arms is just too much. Even walking hurts so bad I can barely stand it. I am eating right and drinking almost exclusively water, but my inability to work out is making this way harder than it was years ago. I know that it is terrible to yo-yo the weight up and down, but I need something I can stick with and actually succeed at! I tried Curves but their workout did not help me, then I stopped going when they triple-charged me on month for the fun of it and made me go through a miserable 4 months trying to get my money back.

Really look at a book or google "wheat belly". I had a knee problem for 6 months that just hurt constantly, which made exercise difficult. Nothing helped but as soon as I have up all breads, processed sweets (replaced with fruit), and pasta my knee pain is gone, my ankles are less swollen/smaller n so are my hands. So many "professional trainers" don't really know what we go thru. I will tell u the first thing is to give up certain foods without sacrifice but substitution. People always say diet n exercise, but the first thing is diet because your body has to be in the condition to exercise. Once you give up wheat you will feel the water retention come off your body (this is not the same as gluten free). Once the water comes off your joints you will want to start doing more for your body n health. Your joints have to operate before u can exercise in the traditional sense. Start exercising even in bed. U have to start somewhere n exercise can be done lying on your back. U have to get your metabolism up thru food n moderate exercise (always do a little more today than u did yesterday). Then eventually you'll work your way to walking n going further in your journey. Cook at home n carry ziplock bags full of cut fruit n veggies with u. Eat the good stuff when your hungry to avoid cravings. In your bed start to find what parts of your body are the strongest n focus on those areas. If your not strong enough to use weights that's fine. Your body already is carrying extra weight so just focus on moving and getting your blood flowing. Laying in bed do whatever you want with your limbs(punches, kicks, knee bends, squeeze triceps together). Don't be hard on yourself n learn to read a lot on others weight loss success n secrets to stay motivated. Read spiritual books n read about spices n things to make food fun. Mind, body, n spirit are all connected n essential. I noticed my joints were less swollen about 5 days after no wheat..n knee no longer hurts n im not fatigued like before. i feel like a poison came out of my body. Best of luck to you on your journey!!

Hello. I am in my mid 20's a mother of two I currently weigh 240 standing at 4'11 & would like to lose 100 lbs in a years span. My schedule is pretty busy I work in the morning at a burger joint. Pretty tempting not to just grab a burger n fries for lunch. Right after I am enrolled in evening classes at my local college. I plan on joining a gym & excecising, changing all my bad eating habits and getting active. I would like to get your feedback on how to start getting on the right track, meal options as well as a work out plan. I'd love to hear your opinions & advice. Thank you in advance.

I know this is an old thread but, if it's still active, could you help me? I have exercise-induced asthma which has made losing weight nearly impossible. Are there any exercises I can do to still lose weight relatively quickly and not have to stop in the middle for an hour and a half to get my breathing regular again?
March 10, 2013
Hi annie. Use albuteral before and after you exersize. Eventually your lungs will open up and you will not need it anymore. I also have exersize enduced asthma. As I worked out more, my lungs conformed.
March 11, 2013
I don't have asthma but I googled wheat belly after seeing it on dr oz. I'm the type that questions everything especially about weight loss. I have read many people talk about how giving up wheat got rid of their asthma.. U may wanna look into this as an option.

Try a liquid diet it you are up yo it. Be sure to get enough protein and add one serving of avacado or olive oil to the diet each day. A good idea is to use my fitness pal to track key nutrients. Google bariatric surgery liquid diets to help guide u on the diet. Good luck
