Try to stick to a strict diet regime for one week eating the same amount you are now (in calories) but with healthy, good for you food and at good regular times - and push yourself to exercise. Just for a week. If you don't see ANY weight loss at all, or if you see weight gain (make sure to weigh yourself at the same time), then you should probably try dropping your calories by around 200.

Hi again!
This is the part that I am having trouble with... 'cause right now, I am MAYBE eating 1000 calories a day. If I cut out drinks, that would rapidly decline.
Like today for example.. it's 5:10 and I just ate a Luna Bar. That's it. All day. Usually I am not that bad, but I just have no appetite at all. I had to go to the dentist this morning, so I didn't eat to avoid any attacks (I get really nervous at the dentist). Then I couldn't eat for half an hour after, then I commuted downtown, had a job interview and came home.. and ate a Luna bar.
So should I still eat 1000 calories a day, or try to eat more? If I drop that by 200, that's only 800 calories a day! Is that okay?
I'm sorry if I am being a big pain in the butt, I just feel really confused.
Thanks so much for the other suggestions, I will definitely give them all a try!! No more sugar (well, the 'bad' sugar!) and I will do as best I can to add more whole grains and veggies.
I've done a load of walking today, so I think I might do some more cardio if I get time tonight and will definitely do some weights while I watch TV or something.

Give yourself something like a 1 or 2 week committment - I find that's easier to stick to. This week, I WILL go to the gym and eat right etc.
Will do!!

Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help, and I hope this isn't coming accross as unsolicited advice or anything Hugs!
You're such a doll, I feel like I am taking advantage. And it isn't coming across as anything but very helpful and nice!
**big hugs**
