    Are you on any type of HRT ? I was on HRT and put on loads of weight . Came off two weeks ago and ive lost half a stone and hoping it carries on till i get back to normal weight. Im now trying out vitamins to see if they help .

    Ditto to low carb and no grains. I lost 12 lbs. I follow a diet called Shibboleth but it's basically low carb, very little to no grains.

    Yes... sometimes I look pregnant-- so disgusting because I know it's all fat.. ; ( I have heard that low carb and eating more protein and healthy fats are key to losing for most people. But gosh it's so hard because I crave sugar and carbs.. Today, I did eat a salad and a bunless burger which was good but then caved in to some 'goodies' later. Ugh
