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!
Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance!
Slim is where I wanted to be in 201o & 2011! Never happened, plateaued for a long time and gave up... got off track, but never left, so am back on track again!!! Make 2012 my year! So far, did finally lose 25 lbs. over the summer, but have found about 11 of it so far, it didn't hide good enough... and lost it again in 2013... going down to 175 this fall, and staying there...this time!

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!!!
