    Ever wanted to take off a few pounds? Were you successful? Let's discuss diet and weight loss, guys.

    I have tried every theory of weight loss or weight maintenance under the sun. (I've been "naturally skinny" all my life until the past five years or so, and have grown a tad fluffy with time.) In my 20's my doctor gave me speed -- man, that works like a charm! The guy who invents an appetite suppressant that has no bad side effects will make a fortune, and I gather they are making some progress that-a-way.

    In my 30's I tried exercise. I was diligent as hell...seven days a week, mostly strength training. Never lost an ounce nor did I become any stronger. Exercise is unbeatable for stress management, though, I will say that much.

    In my 40's keeping weight on was the problem, not getting it off. I blame the yo-yo hormones a lady has at an older age for this. Unfortunately, "skinny" is a bad look for an older lady.

    Now, I am kinda sorta just watching what I eat, walking every day, blah blah blah. I'd like to take off about 15 lbs and nothing is happening. I'm beginning to think it's because I am meant to have the extra padding.

    What say you? Ever wondered if the diet gurus are full of shit?

    Diet "gurus" are absolutely full of shit. I took off about 25 lbs of little people weight and the biggest thing that kicked my butt into gear was simply keeping a food diary. Trust me, when you actually write down what you eat and take a look at it at the end of the day you might be surprised and a little embarrassed at the amount of crap you put in your body that you didn't even think about - and it's all there in black and white to keep you honest.

    if you did strength training and didn't get stronger then you were seriously doing it wrong.

    Eat sensibly, walk and take up pilates or callantics or, preferably, both.

    The weightloss program outlined in this video is tried and true and guaranteed to work if you actually follow it.

    When I was stationed overseas Far East Network and AFRTS would run these 30 second spots on loosing weight. They went like this:

    "If you want to lose weight, exercise your body more, and exercise your mouth less".

    Move to another country where they have real food ?

    Eat fresh, home cooked food.
    Always eat 3 or 4 small meals a day and park your car as far away from Walmart as you can. Cut your own damn grass. Wash your own car.Paint your own house and clean your own gutters and flew,chop your own firewood, shovel your own snow,rake your own leaves, if applicable.
    If not find a place to swim about half hour, 3 or 4 times a week.
    In other words...be un-murkin.

    Oh. And throw the fucking TV in a dumpster. You're all dumbed down enough.
