People that say you just have to do to lose weight can be idiots.
Yes, SOME PEOPLE can do a little more and lost 30-40 pounds in a year.
And others no matter how hard they try, or how hard they work at it, can't lose more than 4 or 5 pounds.
As I posted in another thread, and ex-gf of mine did everything right. She ate salads for meals, walked on the treadmill every day, rode a bike for
up to a mile or more, sometimes walked outside for a mile or more, and was on her feet a lot at work. And managed to bring her cholesterol down, and
lost MAYBE 5 pounds in five or six months. It's not a matter of people sitting on their butts and doing nothing, and becoming overweight. Some
people do everything right, and simply CAN NOT lose weight.
