Are you tracking your food??

Are you fueling your body with whole, uprocessed food?

I would love to have more details about you to help.

I agree with all the posts as well. I want to add that if you are in perimenopause gaining weight can be a symptom. I do everything do help me loose but I gain or go into a yoyo type of status where I may loose but then I start to gain again.

But be sure to check with your doctor for more assistance.

I've been there.

My best advice is to just keep trying. As long as you don't give up, my experience is that the switch clicks and suddenly you CAN do it! Tracking food on SparkPeople is very helpful. Even when you aren't cutting calories, track to see what you are eating and how you can improve. You can make better food choices. At first weighing and measuring and planning is time consuming, but once you get your favorites set, it's not so hard. Definitely worth it!

I also love the book, The Beck Diet Solution by Judith Beck PhD. It has 42 days, each with an exercise that helps you "think like a thin person."

Freggies - fresh fruits and veggies are your friends. Eat plenty! Drink lots of water. Get moving. What you do positive is just as important if not more important than what you give up.

Best wishes!


My Keys to Success = Tracking! Super Foods! Step Up Cardio! And most important: Quit Quitting!!

Hi slimkat6. I can see your frustration and anxiety re your weight gain.

Let me ask you this:

Do you weigh all of your food (for increased accuracy) and enter it into the Nutrition tracker to see where your calories are coming from? If not, then doing so will be the best thing that you can do to help you lose that weight and get you to where your body needs to be. You then have the power to tweak your nutrition to ensure that what you consumes are within the appropriate ranges for you.

Remember, too, it doesn't just come down to calories. It also helps to ensure that those calories are healthy ones ... think lots of fruit/veges; think nuts; think legumes; think lean protein, whether it be meat sourced or other sources. Think healthy fats.

I suggest that you just make gradual changes to improve your nutrition, if it needs improving, because that will be a huge help to you.

IF you are already pretty much doing that, then perhaps you need to talk with your Dr to see if there is some medical reason why this is happening. Things like PCOS and Hypothyroidism can cause a person to gain, or make it very difficult to lose.

Good luck,
Kris

Hi I would love to be you weight loss buddy. I also need help. Perhaps we can help each other. We can do this together.

Tip to reduce weight: First turn your head to the right and then turn it to the left. Repeat this exercise every time you are offered something to eat.
