thanks! I am aiming for better food choices today. I stay within my carb limits but not always what I should be eating. I am also going to start my Prevention Belly Butt Thighs DVD. I am developing some unwanted little rolls. Grrrrr. I have been walking lately but no other exercises. Still getting in at least 10000 steps a day. My fitbit flex does keep me motivated to do that. glad to hear I'm not the only one with issues. I used to be able to quickly lose that 5 lbs gained but no longer.

Hi, SHAROB621. How have you been over the past couple of months? Your post from June really rang a bell - SO many women go through what you are describing. I just want to note that all it means is that a change in technique may be needed to jump-start your metabolism - foodwise, more protein, fewer starchy carbohydrates, and better quality fats (as well as many fresh herbs and spices whenever you can, especially garlic, turmeric, cayenne, and cinnamon, if you like any of those); and activity-wise, combining different types of exercise, such as cardio with weight-training, steady and low-impact with bursts of high-intensity, and switching muscle groups every few weeks. Here's wishing you well :)

Haven't left the group - boy do I need help. I have been working hard since April only to go up and down the same 3-4 lbs - I'm right back where I started. I track my food - increased my exercise. If this is a spin off of menopause I do not like it!

I currently do elliptical for 35 min - not every single day. Do a lot of walking. I am averaging 12,000-13,000 steps a day on my fitbit. I cannot run because of arthritis in feet. Prob need to do some of my exercise tapes. I did go to Zumba last week once. I used to do Zumba 2-3 times a week. I love it! Any other suggestions?

what you might want to do is drink a lot of water and perhaps start drinking protein drinks also. I was frustrated for a long time and my weight kept on going up and up until just this week where it is beginning to go down and I hope never goes up.

slowly but surely I will get to where I am going.

I'm frustated because no matter how much time I spend at the gym my weight goes up and up. I'm trying but nothing is happening and i'm not sure why.

Thanks for letting me vent.

Arizona time for the time being.

Thank you so very much for your candor. I share your frustration. I joined SP in April, with a goal to lose only 10 lbs. Sounds easy, right? Yet over the next 5 months, I gained 13 lbs while keeping to a strict ~1300 calorie diet daily, and being very MyPlate compliant. I followed all dietitians' suggestions AND exercised as much as my health would allow (exercise walking 8 hrs per week). Then I started losing slowly after months of stagnation--a 3 lb weight loss which became a plateau that has not changed for a number of weeks now--though I still eat ~ 1,300 calories daily and exercise as recommended. Soooo . . .I just don't get on the scales unless the pants get looser. Strangely enough, I'm feeling much better mentally. Maybe just getting to a place of acceptance because my bigger goal is to be as healthy as possible physically, nutritionally and emotionally. And letting go of weight expectations has eased the stress. Hope this somehow helps a bit. You sound like a really dedicated, loving Gram, and I have to believe good results will come your way as you continue making healthy choices for fitness and health. Best wishes for a good holiday period with your family, Mary

My frustration is no matter what I eat or how much I excercise the weight goes up or stays the same. Some lose weight working out not me I gain more.
