I need help

I know that this title has nothing to do with fashion or even blogging but, I really need to go on a diet and I need help.  I have always been fairly small...until about 2 years ago where somehow I managed to gain about 15 pounds.  I still do not consider myself fat but, chubby maybe?  Have any of you gone a diet and it was successful?  I want to do this the right way but I don't know where to start!

I've never been to your blog before, but after cheacking it out, I would say you are wrong. You don't need to go on a diet! But, if it makes you feel better try running a couple times a week because when you are more active you feel better about youself!

It is important to eat properly. I don't recommend dieting, but instead just being careful to not over eat and to not eat poorly chosen foods. For istance, it is important to eat breakfast, perhaps something with eggs as protein is important. for Lunch eat the most that you do in the day. Something healthy like a salad and a fruit with a meal that is somewhat filling. Do not eat until you are stuffed though, people who do that tend to continue to want to eat more and more and more. then for dinner have something light. People tend to make this their large feasting period, and it shouldn't be. NO SWEETS.

Work out!!!! very important.
I had two babies and I was chubby for ME after I had them each and the only way that I got back to my normal weight, which is normal weight for my height, was working out. I do a LOT of Dance Dance Revolution at home. It burns off a lot of calories and is fun. I do it so much that I do most of them in expert mode now. That is the best way to lose weight. I use DDR to keep in shape because I know someone who was 300+ pounds and now they are 140 pounds and in a lot of shape (they are male) and they really worked out a lot on Dance Dance Revolution. I also know someone who was over 300 pounds who was dedicated to jogging for a half hour a day and after a year it is as if they lost a person and a half off of their weight. They are in shape and look great.
