I have been walking persistently sometimes up to 10, 11 or 13 KM a day and still nothing...well, staying within that same 4 lbs. week after week after week...till this last week, I suddenly went up 5 lb... I'm past menopause, so this can;t be hormonal and 5 lb x 3500 cal = No way I ate that....so I don't know what gives, but how frustrating!

So I'm stuck right where I'm at and need help/advice/shock treatment! :) I have about 10lbs that I have been trying to lose for about 2 years now and it is very discouraging. I work out on average 5 times per week with a healthy mix of cardio and weight training. My diet is clean about 90% of the time and even when it is "dirty" it is never fast food and very rarely junk food. I have worked with a trainer at the gym and I did lose some inches and felt myself toning up more. I have GAINED weight on the scale. I know some of it is fat, because my clothes are tighter, but some of it is muscle b/c I can see definition that I didn't see before. I just recently started a Step Class and hope that will mix things up a bit, but I really want to lose this belly fat and can't seem to do it!! It makes me want to just give up completely somedays, but I know that can't be an option. I'm hoping for some advice, ideas, motivation. Thanks to my fellow Spark People peeps!!!
