    This will make a great hub idea. But, the quick of it is from my experience is you got to think like politicians and some governments. Simply, deficit spending and residual cost overruns. Get those down and you will lose for sure.

    In other words it takes 3500 calorie deficit for one week to lose 1 lb./week. Or, a deficit of what is normal now of -500 calories per day. That can be from diet/nutrition or exercise. Recommended weight loss for long term positive results is about 1 - 2 lbs per week. That rate is desirable for health and for sustainability of maintaining the NEW lower weight. OK, that explains the deficit spending.

    Residual costs overruns comes from increasing the metabolism. Doing this through food choices, exercise and healthy habits assures a constant burn of calories, even though they may be low. Think of the space shuttle flying. The exercise is the take off, but the miniscule thrusts to maintain directions and momentum continues to create calorie burn - increased metabolism.

    I weighed 225 at 5,10" (2005) with what is called a small frame according to my wrist measurement. When I was 18 (1972), I weighed on a good day 130. Today, I'm happily at 165.

    Oh, remember the gov't is sneaky too. When you lose weight real fast or use some aids or drink diet sodas (aspartame) you trick your brain, confuse it, and well the body kinda' revolts and begins to store fat. Doesn't weigh a lot, but sometimes muscle loss occurs too. Aha - weighs more therefore weight loss.

    I don't know if that helped or not. It was a late night smile 

    Just for a fun theory read my hub - Be a Writer! CONNECT the Body, the Mind, and the Spirit and LOSE weight! http://tsmog.hubpages.com/hub/LearingStepstowriting It is a satirical article I came up with after watching too much Saturday Night Live. smile

    are you actually weighing and measuring your portions and counting your calories? I know I was not successful at weight loss until I was very diligent in counting calories.  I also had to give up gluten (I had an intolerance that was hindering my progress) and change my eating habits.  Some will tell you that you can eat whatever you want as long as your calories are in range, but for some of us that isn't always the case. 

    Ensure you are eating no processed foods and that you are counting every calorie.  When it comes to exercise make sure you change up your routine regularly and don't do the same routine or exercise over and over - your body will respond to changes in routines.  Also be sure you are doing strength training (muscle raises body metabolism) in addition to cardio(burns the fat) and just being more active in general.  More general activity in your day will keep your metabolism going at a higher rate.  If you do a half hour workout and then sit the remainder of the day - the metabolism slows back down.

    I'm not sure how much you have to lose, but it's common that the more you have to lose the quicker you lose it - so someone who is losing say 50 or 60 pounds like I did will lose quickly at first and then when you get to that last 20 or so it slows way down - don't worry about it just keep doing what works at that point and don't get discouraged.

    I published a hub recently that described a different type of diet that is especially helpful for those who have struggled to lose weight. Feel free to check it out: http://fitmom.hubpages.com/hub/HCG-Diet … ol-the-411

    I'm hoping to publish one soon on another way to help lose weight- maybe even as an answer to this question.  smile

    Wishing you the best!

    Thanks Christin. You know the fact about counting calorie is the most basis yet we tend to not follow it up. I was also putting it off.
    Also its a very good advice to not stick to the same routine. I was also thinking of modifing my routine. I do morning or evening walk for 1 hour and streches and yoga for 30 mins daily. Will make the routine little mre intense now.
    Thanks for all your valuable tips.

    Have you or someone you know ever reduced calories, exercised, and lost very little weight or even lost some weight but then stalled your weight loss? This situation is what frustrates so many people who have a desire to lose weight but just end up throwing their hands up in frustration because they just can't get the results they're looking for. In order to fix this problem, you have to consider that there are other things affecting your weight loss. read more

    My advice is not to do the same thing over and over again.  If you want to change your body you need to change what you are doing.  I often compete with myself and try to exceeding my limits.  For example I increased the distance I ran every time I ran until I was running 12.5 miles.  Then I spent some time increasing my speed.  Another option is to do a different exercise.  Lately I have been doing a different workout every week.

    I do not count the calories I consume.  Instead I focus on improving my exercise performance while avoiding junk foods and drinks.  I will increase the intensity or duration of the exercise.  Often I will do both.  Your body adapts.  So if you want to continue to change you need to keep changing your routine.
