eat sensibly and healthily and do exercise.

What libra said. No diet, exercise 4 times a week, took up running in fact, ate healthily and didn't cut anything out. If I wanted a cake I jolly well had one, but it was a treat, not a staple.

Lost 2 stones.

You need to lose 1-2lbs a week for your body to sustain it.

Gastric bypass. Dramatic optioon but did the trick.

You need to get your body used to a different way of eating. Not dieting. I'd say a weight loss of 3 - 4lb per MONTH is possibly sustainable. If you did this you could lose 1.5 - 2 stone in six months. Its a lot when you think about it.

The weight loss amount per week or month must have some relevence to how over weight you are to start with though?

If you are eating 4000 calories a day and have 5 stone to lose your weight lose is going to be more than 1-2Ilb to start with - you would be dropping to 2000 calories a day which is the recommended amount, thus losing 14000 cals a week - that is 4Ilb (3500 cal = 1ILB)

If you had one stone to lose then it will be different
