How to lose weight without losing your mind?

After a lifetime of no weight problems, I am about 30 pounds overweight (this has happened over the past 5 years) but have not changed my eating or exercise habits since my pre-weight-gain days. My doctor says that I have no health problems (my thyroid, cholesterol, and blood sugar have all been checked.) I probably consume around 2000-2400 calories a day and I exercise fairly regularly (3x/week). I haven't had any undue stress or strife in my life, and lead a happy, normal life. I'm a female, late 30s, and am finding it next to impossible to lose the weight. If I try to cut calories even for a day, I find that I am totally starving, and I feel weak, cranky, and dopey (I have a very hard time concentrating at work when I try to eat less). Any suggestions for losing the weight at a reasonable rate (I don't want to be "on a diet" for months on end) without feeling so rotten?

Why Does Wellbutrin Cause Weight Loss?

Why does Wellbutrin cause weight loss? Even my doctor doesn't seem to know for sure. Are there unproven medical hypotheses or studies amongst doctors or pharmacists or anyone else that lean towards an as-yet-unofficial answer? (Feel free to get technical. If I don't understand, I'll Google.)

Was I hacked?

I was in a public location last weekend with a wi-fi enabled laptop (windows xp). Someone, with another laptop, was broadcasting a session id with the name "Free Wireless Internet." Without really thinking about what I was doing, I connected to this machine for a duration of approx 5 minutes thinking that I would get free internet. There was in fact no internet access. The next time I checked my computer for certain files, I noticed that a bunch of data was missing. Is it possible to do wi-fi computer to computer hacks? In just 5 minutes? [more inside]

External Hard Drive Data Loss!

I am turning to the Meta community for help since I am at a loss on how to answer this question. A good friend of mine has suddenly lost a lot of data from an external drive that he keeps on all the time. He has a Western Digital 320GB drive that stores mostly live recording of the DMB. The drive reads as 298GB total size and 78GB free space, but the only folder on the external is showing that there is only 123GB of data being stored (therefore ~98GB of data is missing). He has searched the drive for the folders but they are not showing up. Any idea of what could have happened to his files? Also, would it be safe to shut down the external (since its always on) and see if that fixes the problem?
