Quoting gwilt:
:sad: I watch what I eat, I eat breakfast, exercise 3-5 times a week, don't drink, take vitamins, don't take hot showers and I still CANNOT shed any weight...what gives??????

I would start a calorie journal and see how many calories you take in a day and compare it to what you burn at rest plus any exercise you may do...bottom line is you have to burn more calories than you take in to lose weight. But at the same time don't drop all your calories because your body will fight to keep the fat. it has to be a happy medium of eating healthy with exercise over an extended amount of time to see results.
