Go back to basics...protein first, drink lots of water, weigh and measure and log to see exactly what you're eating. Eliminate any high carb foods that have crept back in. Keep close track so you know how many calories you're actually consuming, so you know where to cut. Good luck!

what does a days menu look like for you? Are you measuring and tracking?

many of us have to drop calories down to 600-800 to lose.

wine is pure sugar and totally empty calories. Stopping that may be all you need to do to lose.

fruit is also pure sugar and I would stop that and eat meat with the eggs.

leave off the bread as Nd eAt more chicken salad.

leave off the veggies at dinner unless the are very low carb ones and eat more meat.

I don't have any advice other than what's already been given, but I just wanted to say that I can relate. I also want to lose eight lbs (I'm now four lbs "overweight", according to the BMI chart). It's really tough when you're normal - or slightly above normal - weight. I used to roll my eyes at normal weight or slightly overweight women who complained about how hard it was to lose five or ten pounds. Now I get it...

Don't get caught up in what BMI charts say and remember, this is a marathon, not a race. Best way to lose weight in my opinion is to cut out snacking. Easier said than done. If you're craving a snack and are gonna cave, brush your teeth instead. That fresh feeling will kill the urge to snack. Also, go for a walk. Walks help a lot. Especially now that it's summer, it feels good to sweat it out. Keep on keepin on.

I feel you but unfortunately I have gained 60 lbs since 2015. Im 8 yrs post op. In 2015 I had a break up of 22 yrs, had knee surgery and stopped going to the gym 6 days a week, well.. That will do it. Im trying to lose it now. It is defiantly way harder this time and I feel like I've gained 200 back. It will always be a struggle but we have to over come that as hard as that is. If we change our mind set other things will change. Im working on going back to basics and I also joined WW clearly you only have 8 lbs so thats more doable on your own, just dont let it get anymore out of control bc Im telling you its not easy... My motivation for exercise is gone and trying to recover that is even harder. Good luck :)
