There's no magic to losing weight. Decrease calories and increase exercise. If that doesn't work you need to up the exercise. Safe weight loss is 1-2 lbs per week and it is shown that weight taken off slowly will more likely stay off in the long term. I have lost about 25lbs in the last year. I exercise 6-7 days per week for a minimum of one hour. This includes cardio and weight training. If you increase your cardio activity (and I mean by raising your heart rate) you will burn more calories. Be consistent and be motivated. It's the only way to get the weight off.
