snack on really healthy foods like carrots that have very low calories- some acctually help you lose more by eating them because they take more energy to digest in your system then the energy(cal.s) that are in them such as apples and carrots and many other that you can find when you look up negative calories foods list. good luck! after you get this down then maybe you could work on portion and timing control...

I lost the 20 pounds by doing The Firm video,excersizing, eating right, drinking water and green tea coz it speeds up ur metabolism..and I was just patient and I believed I can do it and If you believe you can do it, you can..Coz actually I didnt think I was that overweight until my exboyfriend dumped me coz I gained weight over the summer..At first I sobbed and layed in bed all day eating icecream... lol but then I knew it was revenge! So I dropped 20 pounds and now I'm 140 and well I have some muscle too..and I walked past him at skool and I felt great! Later on that day he said he was sorry and asked for me back..And I said No ur getting too fat...and i walked away, he got the deal..I'm not skinny but I kinda have a J'lo figure.JUST DONT GIVE UP ON YOURSELF! I DID THAT TO MANY TIMES! and then i believed i could do it and basically willpower is all it took..If anyone ever makes fun or picks on you, you just prove them wrong and then that really makes you want to not give up on it...Also make sure you satisfy your biggest critic........YOU.
