Sneaky Reasons Why You're Not Getting Results

  • I like many people have become frustrated about not seeing changes in weight and my clothes are tight. I bought a flex band 3 months ago and have started about 2 weeks tracking calories eaten on my fitbit app. I eat right, exercise -cardiovascular and weights at home, but I can't lose a pound in 3 months. I've lost 1/2nd on waist and hips, but pants are still snug. I am 59, but metabolism is pretty high and I never sit still very long. I do 10-17,000 steps per day, but why won't any pounds come off????

    I am not heavy, but feel better and clothes shouldn't be as snug as they are with all that I have been doing lately. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you - 4/19/2015 7:31:43 PM

    My biggest challenge is changing my diet. I feel like I'm hungry a large part of the day, but I know I am getting way more calories than I need. - 3/3/2015 12:17:43 PM

    Just what I needed to keep on track!. Logging and consistency in what we put in our mouths and exercise is so important. I, unfortunately work real hard for a day or two in the gym and then become unmotivated because I hurt so much.
    Thanks so much! - 11/22/2014 3:25:11 PM

  • I loved the information especially the part about sitting all day. Well that is my job. I am a receptionist and I sit all day. I get one break a day and that is the hour that I get for lunch. What I need to do is eat and then find me an empty office so that I can work out, which is hard since there are areas of the building that are off limits. I have been teasingly asking the finance team if they can put a treadmill or something in the budget for next year. I get told that is a good ideal but I would really like to see it happen.
    I do get out when the weather changes though but right now I am stuck just sitting during the day. One thing in my defense is that I do stay active until its time for me to go to bed. I am somewhat new to the exercise routine but now I am taking it seriously and want to do the best I can to get results. - 12/12/2013 3:30:20 PM
  • This was a very helpful article, which I really needed to read! Thanks for all the great information and tips! - 12/12/2013 12:07:12 PM
  • I agree that swapping sleep with exercise is my biggest curse. Starting today, naps are a no-no. When tired during the day I will force myself to go for a walk, jump rope or lift weights. - 11/3/2013 12:42:06 PM
  • Thanks for all the info. - 7/16/2013 7:44:00 AM

  • Great article. I am saving this article. - 7/12/2013 9:34:27 PM
  • I like the idea of setting a timer every half an hour to get up and walk around the office. I will definitely start doing that, I sit in front of a computer all day. Besides, even just a little walking should boost my energy level during the day. - 7/12/2013 8:37:23 AM

    Okay...so the article says sleep is more important than exercise. I have always wondered about that. I get my exercise in almost every day but sleeping...that is definitely a work in progress. - 7/7/2013 2:39:24 PM
  • Not getting enough sleep is an issue for me. I will try some of these changes and see if I can have better results! - 6/25/2013 9:10:27 AM
