OK. How’d you do it? I am STARVED all the time; with winter coming and stress out the wazoo. How? I need to lose 25 or 30 lbs.

FWIW, I dropped roughly 50 (fifty) pounds in less than 1 (one) year and really wasn't awfully hungry. I use the Weight Watchers system, exercise compulsively, and don't "cheat". (Well, I don't cheat too much.) My wife also did the Weight Watchers thing -- she's a poster child for this and now weighs the same as she did in High School. Having 2 people in the same household who are doing this (plus a kid who is a veggie health and fitness nut) is very helpful. But I'm almost never hungry. My BMI went from low in the obese-range, through overweight, and now I'm in the "normal" range.

1) I was very motivated (long story)
2) I love to walk and live near a mall that's great for walking
3) I had a good amount of free time during that period.
1) Atkins.Strict Atkins.Much,much easier to stick with than I expected.There's a physiological reason for that which my doctor (who's on the staff of a major Boston hospital) explained to me.In short,it's because of all the protein you're eating.
2) Lots of walking,every day,"Power walking"...meaning almost running.At least 1 1/2 hours a day,usually 2.In good weather I walked outside,in bad weather I walked at the mall.
So,with all that it took me about 2 1/2 months to lose 20 pounds and another 1 1/2 months to lose the last 10.When finished I was just within the "normal" range for my BMI (27,IIRC).And I felt better than I had since graduating from Army basic training.
