I have to say I agree with spacey47, for this reason.......I wasnt morbidly obese when I joined fat secret but my bmi was in the obese category 36.59 weight at the very begining before I found F.S was over 210 lbs. Thanks to a lot of research in books on the web and here from a lot of friends I have made I have learned that what really works is calorie counting, portion control, and exercise, I also learned that this will be somthing I will have to do way after I reach my goal to maintain a healthy lifestyle. To be compleatly honest im looking forward to coming on here to log my calories and exercises diaries for many years to come, not just for the benefit of keeping myself on track but to be of some help to anyone else out there who is or has gone through what I have, to help with struggles etc be a helping hand. What works for me isn't going to work for everyone, but telling what we have done to get to where we are is an inspiration to others. Obviously what spacey47 has done has worked for him and continues to work for him, and any advice on here is good advice even if it wont work for everyone.

Calorie counting and weighing myself EVERY DAY helped me to lose 108 pounds. No fat and low fat is my best friend! Lots of veggies and Nutrisystem for the first 60 pounds.

Even when we were on a 10 day cruise in December I weighed myself first thing every day.

For me, when I don't count calories I stop losing weight. In last week I gained a pound. I thought I continued to eat healthy and same portion sizes but obviously not. Now I'm back to rigid counting.

Carb Blockers
No, but I am think of ordering the Plexus Block, which sounds very similar. My weight loss is stalled and I've added a lot of exercise.
