Exercise daily, that doesn't mean you have to go HARD everyday, just stay active. Sure some days you can go hard, but if you not feeling it one day, try some light exercises. Skimble 'casual' workouts are great for that :)

WATER. FIBER. PROTEIN.

Nutritionally live by these 3 words. Make sure your drinking plenty of water. Drinking more water alone can help your body burn fat more effectively. This will keep you satiated as well, which will help you eat less calories. Don't drink calories, this is one of the quickest ways to put on unwanted weight. We often think we are hungry, when in fact, we are really thirsty. The majority of your nutrition should be focused on eating non starchy vegetables. This will give you more than enough fiber, and lot of nutrients with few calories. Get your protein from high quality lean protein sources such as eggs or egg whites, chicken, fish (salmon & tuna are great sources), and no (or low) sugar whey protein powders are also an option. Using coconut oil to prepare your meals is a more healthful choice. Lastly, berries and citrus fruits have more nutrients per calorie as far as fruits go. 

You got this!

Jessica, I've been following a diet that is close to what Micah above has stated and I've gone down a pants size in four Weeks. Plus I work out daily and do cardio at least 2 to 3 times a week.  I don't drink my calories and consume a min. Of 128 oz. of water a day sometimes more. Keep it up and push yourself hard ! You'll see results I promise. And stay away from the scale!! It just discourages.
