I am depressed and about ready to give up on the idea of losing weight. I did make a mistake on my starting weight, so it shows I lost more than I did. I went down to 210 after being sick one week and have been working to get it down lower with swimming and some weight training. Last week I got down 4 more pounds, but Friday, after 4 days of swimming and water aerobics, I had gained all but one back. Today that last one is back. I have not been going over the calorie limit and only a couple times over the fat limit. I just eat as much as I can, but usually am just below the calorie allowance. I cannot eat many vegetables without it setting off IBS problems. I am so frustrated and upset that I had ice cream (less than a half cup and the low fat kind) for lunch.
Measurements are not going down, either. I am so tired of being like this, and so tired of being sick and tired all the time.
