Welcome, Krisse! I am in perimenopause and it is frustrating, so I hear you. Keep at it though. I take it meal by meal, snack by snack some days. My goal is to be healthy and if I can break it down into small parts, it's not so overwhelming. The important thing is to start, if you fall, get up again, and act as if you can do it. Acting will help make believing much easier. Good luck!

Hi and welcome to the team. Going through the changes brings many changes, among them is a slow down in our metabolism. You have tried many diets and, as you have discovered, they really do not work to keep the weight off. That is because you changed the way you ate only temporarily. You need to make permanent changes to get the weight off and keep it off. SP will help you do that.

Krissie, start weight training and accept that you will do this the rest of your life. Since I,ve been WT, I didn,t lose a lot of weight, but I have lost inches, and I,m reshaping. You will feel good once you get started! Eating clean too! Cherie

I,m Cherie, Been with sparker for 3 yrs, I like that I'm losing it slowly! Its a lifestyle!

A good workout program can help. But also speak to your doctor - maybe there is a medical problem

There are two options regarding committment - your either IN or your OUT. There is no such thing as life in-between.

A person who wants something will find a way..
A person who doesn't will find an excuse...

Krissie50- going thru the change can put on 10 pounds without doing anything different. Itfnyounare not working it will help to try to set a time every morning to exercise. Try to spend more time on exercising since you possibly have more time. Take advantage of the time to get in better health. Good luck!

find foods that work with YOUR body chemistry.

i make this mixture for breakfast , lunch and dinner. i have lost 34 pounds .

i cook 4 large portabella mushrooms sliced, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, 4 large onions sliced, 2 large green peppers, 3 cans green beans, 1 can rutabaga and 5 sliced chicken sausages. find foods that work with your chemistry. i created this meal on my own. i can't seem to loose weight if i eat any grain products. so one day i experimented.



it makes enough for at least 4 days, three meals a day. total cost is 12 dollars. i buy the mushrooms and chicken at sams club. sounds crazy but it taste good and most importantly it's working. i'm not hungry . if i feel the urge to cheat i go get a fork full of my mixture. i chew very slowly as to enjoy my meal.

i have added a small banana and grapes for my snacks and to be a fix for my sweet tooth.

you can add other foods into your menu. just know what works with your body chemistry.

I have gone from 198 to 164 pounds. i can now fit into a size 14 comfortably. i feel so much better. think of carrying a 2 year old around your waist every minute of every day. no i am not done. on the obese chart i have gone from being obese to just plain fat. my goal is to drop another 22 pounds. then i will be happy, healthy and never allow myself to get in this condition again.

one might say eating the same food every day would get boring. not true. when you look in the mirror and can see the difference it's worth

i went to the doctor. for the first time in a long time i was not ashamed to get on the scale. i did not have to get beet red because doctor said i was over weight. it felt GREAT.
