I personally have lost weight by walking and tracking my food. I have given up as muchl processed food as possible. I read labels, use fresh or fozen veggie and fruits with no sauces or added sugar. Hubby and I cook from scratch and it is working for us
Keep on track

Water. I cannot lose weight unless I drink at least 8 cups of water a day. My goal is 12, but I can hardly make the 8 most days. But unless I do, I start an upward climb. So I'd suggest concentrating on the water, keeping moving, and logging all you eat as the most important factors.

are you measuring everything and logging it in on your food log? What does spark say your calorie range is? You might need to up your cardio, walking is good for you it might not be enough to get your heart rate up. I have been post menopausal for about 5 years. I gained weight in the beginning but I did nothing to take it off up until the last couple of years. I can tell you it will come off but it takes time and work. I couldn't believe how slow it was...but it came off. I can't stress how important it is to measure everything you put into your mouth...including the hidden calories in condiments and salad dressings. And even then I kept having to up my cardio minutes until I reached 45 minutes and my HR was in the fat burning zone for the majority of the workout.

I need help! On menopause and battling weight gain I just can't seem to get off. I started seriously working out and changed diet a month ago and have only noticed weight gain. I understand the muscle thing, but I've been walking 2-3 miles every other day and 6 miles on the weekends and have only managed to lose 1 pound. Any suggestions?
