I am so fed up with my wt. going up and down like a yo-yo! Last week I did so well by losing 2.5 lbs. even after eating pizza and spaghetti and meatballs. Then, I get on the scale this morning and gained is ALL back PLUS 2 more over the weekend! I just don't get it. I was more careful over the weekend.
I'm just SO frustrated and don't know what to do. I used to be carb sensitive, and had to restrict carbs to lose. I lost almost 30 lbs. doing that. Then, all of a sudden nearly 2 yrs. ago when I was about to turn 40 I gained over 10 lbs. and I had been eating well and exercising. So, after some experimenting, I was able to add more carbs in and I lost some of the wt. I've been struggling ever since with up and down no matter what I do.
I know part of the problem is I haven't been keeping track of my food on here like I used to. So, starting today that is what I am doing. I just pray I can keep up with it and don't get side tracked. That tends to happen with me.
I'm also bumping up my exercise to include strength training 2-3 times per week in addition to my cardio 5-6 times per week.
We have Total Gym, hand weights and exercise videos, so there is NO excuse!
