Best method is to combine exercise with a diet with the help of a professional who can provide some sound recommendations based on your weight goal and your body type.

Exercise combined with a balance of fat/protein/carbs. Stay away from too many packaged things. Drink A LOT of water everyday. I drink about 6 litres. Everytime you're confronted with the option to not make a healthy choice, make the healthy choice. Regardless of what you ate or didn't eat, did or didn't do earlier. Small choices add up really quickly.

I am in the process of attempting to lose my baby weight. I am starting with simply cutting down on sugars, I have a HUGE sweet tooth and can literally eat cookies for breakfast. I also am going make sure I exercise everyday, even if it is a simple walk around the block. Eating protein rich meals is important because it keeps you full longer and boosts metabolism.

Exercise and eating healthy work for me,I don't believe in diets ,they usually don't work for me
|What Has Worked For Me on Mar 12, 2016 @ 10:40 pm|
I struggled with my weight all through Highschool and college, I put on what I called the freshman 50 & it was hard to accept! I was eating out almost every meal in school and had absolutely no energy! I was introduced to pea protein from a friend and tried it because he gave me some to try! It was actually really good & it did exactly what he said it would - it changed my food cravings? ! I couldn't even beleive it but before I knew it my latenight cravings for sweets were a thing of the past and I was eating a diet full of fruits and veggies and was still able to enjoy snacks, and chocolate, and fried foods when I craved them but it just happened so much less than before ! I lost 70 pounds 3 years ago and haven't gone back! I stopped using the protein about two years ago too so I feel safe in saying I can keep it off :)

I'm learning to stop worrying and love my body. I started a body positive journey because I realised the weight loss industry was extremely topic. I have many illnesses right now (unrelated to my weight) and realised how much more energy I would have to spend on what was important to me if I stopped worrying about what I weight.
So right now I'm prioritising my mental health and learning to love me at every size. It might not be for everyone, but for me this is the right choice. That being said I'm also trying to learn to love exercise and moving my body again as the toxicness of the weight loss industry and women's attitude (and men) in general around weight has left me with some really bitter feelings and I think everyone has the right to find a type of exercise or movement they love.

I couldn't agree more! I avoid all diet sites and social media accounts like Tha plague! I was always quite fit and very active and the change was absolutely more of one with my energy than appearance because I truly didn't even notice myself gaining the weight! I don't know if that's a good or bad thing?
Body acceptance is soo so so important and I to try to advocate to love the skin you are in and if you give your body love it will reward you♡ I read a quote once that really stuck with me
Take care of yourself because you LOVE your body and yourself - not because you hate it!

Yaaay. I just find no matter what we argue about healthy and unhealthy, you should do what feels good for you and what you can manage. Self-love is such an important part of health, but health isn't the be all and end all.
It's a hop, skip and a jump from 'everyone must be healthy' to 'disabled people are a drain on society' and I for one want to at least be fighting against that!
But if Miss32 wants to lose weight and feels good about herself, that's totally fine. I would just caution be aware of not falling into any of the diet 'traps' and love yourself if you don't already!
