Do you want to lose 10, 30, 50 or more pounds? Have you recently reached your weight loss goal but want to maintain it? Are you willing to dedicate yourself to a healthy lifestyle? Then this blog is for you!

I have lost 118 pounds and have maintained the weight loss for two years. One of the things I have learned during the weight loss process is that it is much easier to reach and maintain your goal weight if you surround yourself with like-minded individuals to support you in the process (whether they be in person or online).

I also have learned that learning as much as possible about healthy living gives you the knowledge and expertise needed to lose weight the “right” way. So this blog includes regular posts, a book list, website list, TV list, video list and book and website of the month. In addition, there is a recipe of the month and product review section. Visitors to Weight Loss Aficionado can just enjoy the site for informational purposes or can comment on posts, ask questions, share resources, their triumphs and pitfalls during the weight loss process.

Burn More Calories Than You Consume!

To lose weight it is important that you burn more calories then you consume. When I started my weight loss journey I began an exercise regimen of four days a week an hour a day. Month by month I increased the amount of exercise I did. I currently go to the gym 2 1/2- 3 hours each evening 6 days a week with a day off to relax. Just from exercise I burn my daily consumed calories. I am currently on a 1300 calorie diet. Since everyone naturally burns calories each day without exercise, I am losing weight everyday. Approximately 3500 calories equals a pound. My account (which is free) calculates my "calories remaining" each day and keeps track of my weight loss.
