All you need is the motivation and I am sure it will happen. I'm 5 foot 4 inches and weigh about 120-123. I do not believe in restricting any food group. Balance is the key. I also do not believe in being hungry. It's all about the choices. I'll need you to do me a favor. Take an honest look at what you eat through the run of a day. In fact, write down everything you ate yesterday or today. I mean everything. I'll get you set up with on online calculator to get a handle on your calories. You'd be suprised how many calories we tend to sneak in during a day. Amounting to hundreds. Also put your mind around what you do for exercise if any, and then what you'd be willing to do. There is no sense in me telling you to follow my schedule as our demands are all different. Can you do that? Give me as much info about your activity level, food intake, sleep and water intake.
You'll need a scale and a tape measure. Those two items will tell you everything you need to know.
Ginger, thanks for the information, I am struggling trying to lose my last 5 pounds. I work out also 3 to 4 days week lifting weights and cardio and I eat healty. My problem is consistency.. during the week im good and then on the weekends I drink and eat not so healthy. My wedding is in November and I just want to lose 5 more pounds. I am having a hard time understanding what I should eat for those "other" 3 meals a day. I am also going to PM for any advice you can give.
