I agree with Trish, changing up the food you eat and exercise, keeps the body moving. Make sure you are eating enough and not eating over your daily calorie range. Being healthy is 80% nutrition and 20% exercise.

If you need any specific advice, just ask away emoticon

Enjoy your journey!

Hi there!

Congratulations on all you have accomplished to this point!! When I got "stuck" the last time I worked the program, I did a couple of things to ramp up my metabolism. First, I found another cardio activity that was very different from running, and did it a couple of times per week. Over time, our bodies get used to doing the same activity, and become very efficient. By changing it up, the body will have to work harder, and hopefully your metabolism speeds up. If that doesn't work by itself, then in conjunction with it, play with your nutrition. Eat towards the top of your range for a couple of days, then eat towards the bottom - again, making your body adapt, so it loses efficiency.

Hope that helps:-)
Hugs,
Trish

Hi. Welcome to the forum. I hope you do seek and give support here. You have found what I and several of my Spark friends have. Running doesn't automatically mean lost weight. I went from the couch to 5K without losing anything. The second go around, I concentrated on my eating as well as my running and I've begun losing again. Good luck.

I run 3-5 miles a few times a week and do strength training. I did my first 10k ever back in May. I can run a 12 min mile, maybe even faster, but very conscious of not stressing joints or breaking something. I started fitness program (exercise/diet) to lose weight (lost 20 pounds) but that goal shifted to losing for health - I want to keep my blood pressure in check to avoid medications. I have the exercise piece nailed, at the moment. BUT I never got into the target BMI zone, I hover right above that. AND I have gained back 6 pounds that will not go away. The weight has been creeping back on for almost a year. I am really disappointed with myself because I just know I am overeating and cannot get back in control. Joining this group in hopes to get support to get a grip, again! I am 63 years old.
