When I gave up, I ended up over 200 pounds. Then I finally came to my senses and had more to lose! Just hang in there. If you are eating right, exercising, tracking, drinking water, it will pay off. Besides what are you sacrificing anyway. You are getting in the habit of a better lifestyle by staying consistent. This advice would be good for me to follow too--look for other indicators besides the scale. It isn't always my friend either. I'm sorry about the tiredness though. Maybe something else is going on. When was your last check-up and blood work done?
Keep on going! Keep on going! Keep on going! Keep on going!

Eating too little is as bad as eating too much. You're body thinks you're starving and hangs onto the weight.

Set up a weight loss goal on Spark People and log your food and activity. If you follow their calorie range, based on your age, weight, weight loss goal and activity you will see a difference. Notice how the numbers on the nutrition tracker change as you add a food or an activity.

Keep in mind that our body weight can and does fluctuate up to 5 or 6 lbs. a day and that weight fluctuation can be affected by our sodium intake. Since you are getting lots of good exercise you could also be building muscle which weight more than fat. Since you are exercising and only eating 1200 or less calories, you are probably putting yourself into starvation mode. Try eating enough to have 1200 calories remaining after exercise, which is the amount your body need for healthy maintenance.

Perhaps you scale is not showing a loss, but other measurements are. Have you measured your neck, chest, waist, hips, thighs, calves, ankles, biceps, arms, and wrists? You could well be losing inches even though the scale stubbornly refuses to go down. Are your clothes fitting looser?

The only way we can fail at this is if we give up. Keep on fighting. It will come.

Don't give up!! Are you tracking your food? Tracking your exercise? You may be burning too many calories for the amount that you are taking in.

I just turned 59. Two months ago I was 175 lbs. Now I am 182! I eat 1200 calories a day, sometimes less. I go to a personal trainer twice a week and work out one day by myself. I am always tired. I take meds for high blood pressure and cholesterol. I am a healthy eater. What am I doing wrong! One day I ate just half a sandwich and gained a pound. I am ready to just give up.
