Anyone lost weight just by counting calories, creating a deficit & no exercise?

    Me, me, me! I lost 40 lbs just counting calories. I’m a 5’2” woman 54 yo. I’m working on the last 20, in January I started doing 30-40 minutes of walking, brisk pace (3.5mph), 5x’s a week. It’s so much easier without that 40 lbs to lug around!

    When people say this, I always think "What am I doing wrong?" - because I notice very little difference in my abilities after losing well over 100 lb. I was always energetic though, so I guess that's good!

    Lots of times. But not this time. I'm working on overall health not just a smaller waistline.

    Yes my exercise is very minimal. Walking here and there. Mainly diet has me at a loss of 24 pounds so far.

    Yes, lost the initial 25 lbs, just from counting calories. I incorporated exercise before losing the next 20 lbs.

    I started by tracking calories but the pounds dropped way faster with exercise

    I did this for about two months. I injured my knee and was unable to do any time of exercise (except for swimming, which I don't enjoy). I just stayed at a slight deficit and lost .5 pounds a week until I was able to workout again.

    I just started because I had surgery on my foot. I'm down 3 pounds in 18 days.
