Welcome, Donna O! There are a lot of weight loss diets that work - the key is finding an eating plan that works for you - both in terms of it being easy to follow and in addressing any possible health issues. A lot of people go off their diets because they aren't happy eating that way. Glad you found something that works for you.

Libby - yeah, portion control is very important. There are lots of web sites that show what portions should look like. The one I remember is that a serving of meat is the size of a pack of playing cards. And, yes, people have been taken off cholesterol and blood pressure meds by reducing those levels through diet and weight loss.

Log food
This seems to easy but my inner self thinks if you don't log it you didn't eat it....
Welcome! I often stop myself from eating because I don't want to log the food - either because I don't want to see the calories added, or because I'm too lazy to log it.
