Difficult: Not impossible. Glad you are not giving up! cut out all junk food, fried food, treats, soda...Do five small meals/day @300 cal/meal consisting of 3oz of protein, veg/salad&include a plain potato/red garnet yam in two of the meals or do [email protected] ea.. Walk @lunch, jog in front of the tv, walk on the weekend, take the steps at work not the elevator. If steps @ work use them for noon exercise. You can do it.

Break up exercise: To help lose weight, you still need 150minutes per week of exercise. You can break up this time as 15 minute intervals (everyone can do that) to help accomplish this goal. I usually recommend about 1200cal/day with one 500cal meal at night and three 200cal snacks for the day. Drink alot of water (0.5oz per pound you weigh) to help with the positive results.
