I can now confess that's a bit less of me. Yes, while it's too early to trumpet this as a permanent thing, I have managed to shed around 4 kg (that's 8 or 9 pounds for non-metric readers) in the past month simply by changing how I'm eating. Like many women, I've struggled with my weight since having children, and had ended up accepting that I was always going to be a certain size. While I didn't shop at "Big Girls" shops, I was the largest standard clothing size. I had a "summer" weight, and a "winter" weight, which changed according to how much walking I did, but events over the past year or so (pulled hamstring, followed by inflammation of my foot tendon) meant that I was now "winter" weight in summer.
I'm aiming to drop a clothing size which is quite ambitious coming into winter as we are here, but remember, I have NOT done any exercise to achieve this weight loss - I can still only hobble around, and was totally inactive for 3 months. It's the change in how I'm eating that has worked.
