    To lose that 40 pounds you want to lose, look into the 5:2 diet. My husband's doctor told us about it. You eat 2000 calories for woman and 2400 for men 5 days of the week and on 2 days woman get 500 and men 600 calories. I sat down with a piece of paper and made 2 meal plans for the week. (you don't do the 2 low calorie days in a row) So our days are Monday and Thursday. I repeat the 2 low cal meals from week to week. You have to chose things that you and MO like (if he goes on it with you). My DH and I have lost a combined 75 pounds since the beginning of August and we took a week off when my son visited the middle of August. The since behind it is, our bodies were made for hunting and back in the beginning, you didn't eat a lot every day, like we do now, so this sets your body back to what it is meant to do.
    Just an idea. Nothing has ever worked for me. I have done WW, Atkins and just general low calorie and my part of the 75 pounds is 30 pounds. I feel so much better.
    Good luck on all your goals.
