I work in public health research, but applying what I know to my own life is the challenge! I'm 48, have 3 children, and at 120 kgs the situation felt dire. Saw my doctor and feltl very ready to make the necessary changes. My plan was pretty straightforward - cut out the crap food, eat healthy meals, and do a daily achievable exercise session. So far have lost 34 kg. Have about another 25kg to lose.

I am a professional living in Greater Vancouver, BC. I am 151 cm (4' 11.5") and small framed, so my RMR is very low and I burn far fewer calories in exercise.
1) I stay in groups in which we mutually support each other.
2) I am completely open to new ideas if evidence based. I am not cool with woo. Please read the rest of my group member profile, and see http://rationalwiki.org/wiki/Food_woo
