James, There are a few tricks you can use to lose what you want and if you stick with them, you won't ever gain the weight back.
Keep a bottle of ICE water with you and drink all the time, especially when you want to munch. Chew sugarless gum. It tricks your mind into thinking it's eating but your not actually putting anything in there. And the last two are to chew your food slowly. It tricks your stomach into thinking it's full, seriously... it works and do something EVERYDAY. Walk your dog or your neighbors dog, go for a walk around the block, jumping jacks, scooter.. anything that will get your heart pumping for at least a 1/2 an hour. And no more than 1/2 an hour, not at first. If you do these 4 little tricks everyday, along with cutting your portions by half, like this site says, it will come off and maybe easier than you think.
Good luck and don't give up, dude!!

If you really want to loe wieght then just eat wen your hungry and stop when you are satisfied not when you are full. Because if you eat when you are starving you tend to eat more and also tend to full youself and maybe keep eating too. I am wiegh 116 and I am 4'9". And if you don't care about wieght that much justthink about that whoevr takes atvantege of you becase you have something tey like they are not your friend. And friends aren't your friends if they don't go for your peronality. ;) That stuff may sound like that has nothing to fo with it but it really does. You do the math and you think about it and then get back to me. (Email me if you want at
