    Hi Honeydo
    you really have come to the right place that's what this discussion board is all about supporting and encouraging each other . the best way to remove weight is eating as healthy as you can by avoiding processed foods and eating more nature based foods like fruits and vegetables .
    this plan I mention is not a diet it is a life style change
    You have to keep the new habits forever
    we regain the weight by going back to old habits

    you first step is to look closely at your eating habits to find the "trigger" foods that make you gain
    once they are identified stop buying them if they aren't around you cannot indulge ..
    welcome aboard
