    I used to weigh 220 pounds and now weigh 185. The thing I did is run 3 miles at least 3 times a week, eat a salad with every dinner, and absolutely stop occasionaly pigging out. I lost all that weight in about 4 months, and have kept it off for more than a year. When I started running, I stopped having junk food cravings, but of course many people find it nessasary to make themselves cut out the junk food.

    Exercise at least 45 minutes a day, 5 days a week and eat lots of protein and less fats and sugars.

    I suppose my above statement only made it sound like I used to do those things until I got to 185, when in fact I made a permanent lifestyle change, a must to permanently lose weight. I always make a salad for dinner, and what I do is throw a bunch of stuff together, using Dr. Phils idea of having a bunch of different colors. Off the top of my head, my salads usually have something like a couple different types of lettuce, some cabbage, lots of onion, pepper, cucumber, carrot, and garlic, with olive oil and lemon juice for flavoring.

    Healthy food in sensible amounts, aerobic exercise, vitamins (to be sure your body doesn't play tricks because it's not getting enough of something), and drink lots of water. Let yourself "cheat" two times a week.

    Warning about Atkins inspired diets - people can lose a lot of weight quickly, but unless they permanently change their eating and exercise habits, it all comes back with a vengance.

    The real deal is eat less and exercise more. Easier said than done, right?

    Here's a tip that works great when I just don't want to work out:

    just put on your workout clothes. Then see if you feel like working out. Try it.

    One more. When you're choosing what to eat, THINK. Think about the long term, how much fatter that cookie will make you, not just about how it'll taste good for five seconds.

    Put the cookie down and ride your bike.

    You're definitely not alone. Almost everybody has to deal with this.

    I'm 39, and I've had to work to keep myself at a healthy weight since I was about 18.

    Seriously......ride the bike a lot, eat more healthy - very simple.

    Look carefully at nutritional info on what you eat....many things people "think" are good, really aren't that great. I read a book, "Eat To Live"....it really put things in perspective about good goods versus bad foods. It kind of prescribes a "mostly vegetarian" diet....even though I don't go that far, it does help show you what foods are generally better than others (e.g. stay away from processed foods like poison).

    What it all boils down to, though is:
    Calories expended - Carlories Consumed = +number (weight loss)
    Calories expended - Carlories Consumed = -number (weight gain)

    Ride your bike, ride your bike, ride your bike!!!! I lost about 60 pounds last year.

    OK, I realize that you already know you need to eat less and exercise more. I mean even if you didn't before posting, you do now. I'm guessing that you want to know how to get yourself to do that. I only lost 15lbs last year because in the Summer and Winter, not every day is temperate enough to inspire me to go ride. I also didn't committ to a proper diet, thinking that I could just make myself eat less - but that didn't work all by itself.

    This year I've lost 10 lbs already, and I believe it's due to two things. Having a bike indoors ready to ride if it's too cold/rainy/dark when I have the time available, and following my wife's lead in having a proper diet.

    If you're like me you think "Weight Watchers, you've got to be kidding" - I really razzed her about it when she decided to go. But interestingly enough they now have two plans; the old, and in my mind arbatrary "points" system, and a new "core" program. The core program is what she chose and it made a lot of sense to me. Basically, they suggest a different food pyramid - 50% fruits and veggies, 25% whole grains, and 25% protien. Eat til you're satisfied, and don't stuff yourself. Lowfat meats, and eggs are fine, but not dairy. Anything outside of that needs to be accounted for, but you get credit for exercise. There's actually more to it than that, that's really just an overview, if you're interested you know where to find them.

    Regarding the bike on a trainer, if you're like me you ride on it for 15 min. and it feels like an hour and a half. So I picked up a GameBike on eBay for $60, and hook it up to the bike on one end and PlayStation2 on the other end. I've found a couple of games that work really well with it; Gran Turismo4 and Enthusia. They take the work you're doing on the bike and let the computer know how hard/fast you're riding. The faster you spin your wheel, the faster you go in the game. You can set it for "1st person", and you don't even see the car, you just feel like your cycling on the road (or off road). It also registers your handlebar movements and breaking, so you can really get swept into the illusion that you're riding out there in the Swiss Alps or through a city racecourse. Now, I'm having so much fun that I have to stop myself to go to bed, I'll get in an hour and a half of riding, and not even realize it.

    Anyway that's what's working for me... Good Luck!
