I counted calories and worked out. Counting calories alone and cutting out sugar really helped a lot.

cut down on sugar, and dont eat any empty carbs - so no pasta or white bread, stuff like that. It will melt off! I guarantee it, you wont even have to work out

myfitnesspal.com really helped me lose the weight when I was stuck at a weight I didn't like for over a year (even with working out 4-6 days a week).

This, too! I love that it helps you to determine how many calories you SHOULD be taking in and that you can track every single thing you eat or drink throughout the day.

OMG, me too. I was taking in almost 600 extra calories a day! At my height, I'm only supposed to take in 1200 every day.

I was eating way more than that, lmao. My regular meal at Taco bell was like 1200 cal's just by itself :shock: I try to stick to 1800 now to maintain my weight and I also work out 5 days a week.
