looking for something that works

Hi, new here hoping that this works for me. I am a single mom of 3 teens and an older daughter living at home with a baby on the way. I work 2 jobs and my schedule is all over the place. This is all new to me but I figured it can't hurt to try something new.

    It does work, just make sure you are weighing and measuring and being honest with yourself. You will see results :)

    Welcome and good luck :)

    What works is eating fewer calories than your body burns. Calorie deficit = weight loss. There's no secret to successful weight loss.

    We're all busy. No excuses. You either want it or you don't - you decide.

    You're at the right place. 280lbs to 169.8lbs. Trust me, it doesn't hurt if you stick with it and stay focused. I wish you the best. :)

    Weigh and measure your food, log everything that goes into your mouth, stick to the amount of calories it tells you to stick to. Eat mostly whatever you want, as long as it fits into your calories. It will work.

    What they said the simple point is being consistently at a calorific deficit by eating/ moderating what you eat and moving more. Spend some time learning how to do the basics properly and understanding what you need to do as well as designing a program that will fit your lifestyle/schedule.

    Just to reinforce whats above, dont let your busy schedule become an excuse. Good luck.

    Getting exercise and working out is good. But, it's mostly about the food. We make progress on the things we track. Weighing, measuring and recording is the only way I stay on track.
