performance: losing 0.2 lb a week

I'm 42 and have been fighting my weight my whole life. I lost about 25-30 lbs about 15 years ago and have actually kept the majority of it off (now I fluctuate within a 10 lb range). A year and a half ago I lost an additional 15 pounds using Soloslim (it really did work but in retrospect it's kind of scary)--that's a whole OTHER story. Once I stopped taking it I regained about 10 lbs. So now, here I sit in that same 10 lb range.

I'm not sedentary by any means but I'm not active enough and I love the way I feel when I'm exercising consistently which has gone by the wayside. I want to feel comfortable in a swimsuit. I want to put on a pair of shorts and not be embarrassed about my thunder thighs. I don't want to always be worried about back fat squishing around my bra. I'm tired of always hating myself in pictures and the insecurity that comes along with being overweight. I am ready to do this.

Question about water
I really don't see how an artificial sweetener like aspartame with no sugar or carbs would elicit an insulin reaction. MAYBE one of the "real sugar" artificial sweeteners would have potential on a small level, but the whole job of insulin is to regulate sugar and carb uptake. Just curious as to why people are suggesting that insulin would spike with these products. Yeah, I know the artificial stuff is filled with chemicals, etc. etc. but I really don't see get the whole "insulin reaction" part of this. I've been drinking Diet Coke for years (yeah I know, I know). Maybe someone can enlighten me? Smile Thanks.
