What works for you? every time.
I lost enough weight early on in the year to feel better about myself. As I work and travel a ridiculous amount (this finishes in 2 weeks ) the weight has crept on. My scales battery went flat about 6 weeks ago and I replace it last night - I've put on 5 kilos and I'm not tall. My clothes don't fit properly, I feel ridiculous and lethargic.
I've lost weight before and prior to having a baby was quite slim to very slim. For some reason - I think its pure exhaustion - I have no control - at all!
Inspire me to get back on board with my health - I also want new clothes

Tried and true weight loss....

For me, lots of things work, it's finding the will power
I've had most success with calorie counting and body trim/Atkins or high protein/fat. Shakes have worked ok as well.
I do exercise regularly. At least 3 times a week to gym and walking/exercise at home on other days.

Thanks @BigRedV - willpower is definitely my issue and being exhausted means I have little to no energy to summon will power. Hopefully this will change when I stop working.
I've just started the Couch to 5 K - I'm in week 1. I thought about shakes today to give me a head start...

I'm old school when it comes I weight loss. I do low fat. Eat a heap of dairy (skim) products, just watch calories and start moving.

I eat a lot of good fats (nuts, eggs, avocado) during the day to keep me full. I avoid anything processed or convenience type foods. I don't eat anything low fat, I eat full fat dairy (keeps me fuller for longer) and I eat red meat at night. What I don't eat much of is carbs, salt and sugar. Minimal bread, starchy foods, lollies and cakes and I avoid preservatives. It is a guaranteed weight loss formula for me every time.

I tried Lite an Easy for breakfast and lunch, and cooked a healthy, clean meal for dinner. I would also go for walks twice a week & I lost 7 kg in 6 weeks.

5:2 fast diet. Takes a bit to get used to but definitely works. Dh and I have been doing it since January so it's doable long term. It's meant to have loads of health benefits besides weight loss.
