I have a surprise for you - YOU are the only one who can do anything about your weight. You will get a lot of suggetions and support here, but you are the one who has to put them into practice. No one made you gain the weight and no one can lose it for you. You must do it for yourself. I lost 200 pounds and have kept if off for years and years and you can reach your goal.
First, lose the diet way of thinking. A diet has a beginning and an ending. We go on a diet, lose weight, go off and gain it all back and then some. See this as permanent, forever lifestyle changes you are making to your eating.
Second, no one plan works for everyone. You have to work out what will work for you. It's good to find something that looks close and then modify it to fit your life.
Third, do some kind of exercise at least 5 days a week. It doesn't have to be overly strenuous. Walking a mile a day works for me. All I have to have is a good pair of shoes.
Fourth, for permanent weight lose do not try to lose more than 1-2 pounds average per week - some weeks will be more, some less.
Learn all you can about good nutrition and then practice it. We didn't get overweight eating fruits and vegetables and that's how we can lose it...eat lots of fruit and veggies (frozen are as nutritional as fresh), limit red meat. Make snack foods and desserts an occasional (once a week) treat. Have a frozen fruit bar (45 calories) for a treat - yummy! I limit my starches because I have low thyroid as well. I eat a lot of fish (low calories, very good for you) and poultry.
Losing weight does not need to cost a lot of money. You can get all the support you need here. Post often!
