I lost weight 3 years ago the old fashioned way, counting calories on Sparkpeople. I craved the entire time, then gained it back and then some. May 2, 2015 I started Trim Healthy Mama. As of today, May 15, I've lost a few pounds. More importantly, I've lost my cravings - even when I taste carb & fat ridden foods.
-------------------------
Update on May 8, 2016 - I lost 18 pounds while following THM principles over several months, fell off the bandwagon, but only gained 3 pounds back. Not bad. I'm back on the THM plan and plan to keep going.
--------------------------

Other goals I want to do at a lower weight:
Hike the Blue Beaver Trail up Lookout Mountain.
Spend a night at the Hike-Inn.
Swim with the manatees in FL.
------------------
May 2019 - The weight I lost in 2016, I've gained back. I'm working on weight loss again, and I've lost 10 pounds over 3 months, 5 in March, none in April, 5 in May. I really think 3 to 5 pounds a month is realistic for me.

Oct. 2019 - I've lost 23 pounds since March, average loss is 3 pounds in a month. I try to walk 20 minutes a day, mostly I do. And I do not stay perfectly on my plan.

My eating plan: Using the Sparkpeople suggested diet for my age, height & weight. Most lunches are a Premier Shake with a dark chocolate bar of 150 calories in the afternoon. Mostly avoiding processed foods, but no banned foods.

Other Information:
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.

    It's a good thing that you're so honest about what you're feeling and how you don't want to do what you know you need to do. Just remember that it doesn't require a lengthy amount of time nor does it require that you kill yourself doing it.

    You only need 10 minutes a day and CONSISTENCY!!!! You'll see the results. Take baby steps and do it every day. Only ten, only ten .... that's all you need!

    You can do it!

    Thank you for your recent comment on my page.

    I took your advice and am tracking my food on my tracker. I've even added Sodium to track as I'm doing a challenge on it right now.

    As for exercising, I do a 60 second challenge every day and the 10 minute daiy workout challenge every day as well. I tend to go over that 10 minutes and that will never hurt me. I am starting to see the signs even though the scale is not moving. ;)
