I started eating healty and lost a bit of weight but it stalled after awhile. I had to find time somehow to exercise, be it getting up half an hour earlier in the morning or finding that half hour during lunch or in the evening. My diet was ok but in order for it to work better for me I had to exercise with it. Even if it is the small things we have all heard a thousand times like, Take the stairs, walk short distances rather than take the car.
I started to find that half an hour a day and the weight started to drop again. Maybe it was because of the weight falling off again but I found more than the half hour a day. I think as my body was getting fitter I had more energy and determination. Then I started to let the diet slip and the weight lose stalled again. This was down to my bad diet hence the I couldn't out run the bad diet.
For me anyway I have to watch what I eat and do some form of exercise to lose weight.
I hope you find the time in the day somehow. I know it's not always easy to do.
