No secret. Calorie deficit, drink LOTS of water and exercise 5-6. Its what's worked for me. I've gone from 210 to 121. 4 kids.

I've lost 40 pounds lost from February last year. I've been in maintenance for around 6 months - I'm now around 140 pounds, with a BMI of just over 21.
I was diagnosed with borderline diabetes, hence the diet. It worked - the diabetes is in remission. I am aware that not everyone is a fan of all the steps I took, but they are working for me. The steps were:Logging calories in and calories out, and being at or below target pretty much every day
Going teetotal. I find if I drink, one pint leads to another and then I'll eat a kebab. So hitting target calories was hard with drinking
Exercising a lot. I average 18,000 steps a day at the moment; and I also go hiking, swimming, climbing and lift weights.
Avoiding processed sugar and cleaning up my diet. I have a sweet tooth, so if I eat 1 doughnut, a second is likely to follow. So I abstain rather than moderate.
I weight daily, and use the Libra app to track the trend. This stops me getting hung up on any individual result.
The key one of these, of course, is hitting target calories. The other ones are steps which (for me) make it easier to achieve that main goal.

WOW!!! That's awesome!!!
I'm not even hitting 5000 yet, and it's taken me 2 months of evening walking to get there. In my defense, I'm 68, blew out 5 discs 2 years ago, and had 3 spinal surgeries last year. For the 1st month, every step was agony due to sciatic nerve impingement, but that's getting better now.
My biggest problem is how long it takes to walk 5000 or more steps, and for me, running is no longer an option.

Zero carb OMAD (one meal a day) and weight training. Muscle is the most metabolically active tissue in the body so the more muscle you have, the more you get to eat No calorie deficit since I'm maintaining
