Please help!!!! I am so frustrated! I am 59 years old, several years post-menopausal. I had been sedentary for several years and ended up gaining weight. I had always been average weight...not real thin, and a little prone to putting on pounds if I didn't "watch it."
Never Cheat and Still Can't Lose Weight
When I was younger, though, I could lose weight relatively easily through dieting. Not anymore!! Several months back I started to try to lose weight through my old diet efforts. Nothing happened. I got frustrated and stopped dieting and ended up gaining 3 additional pounds. So, I tried to diet again. Same thing happened and I ended up 7 pounds heavier than when I first began.
I got so depressed...that's when I realized diet alone wouldn't do it anymore and I started exercising. I signed up for Debra's 5-day flip, and I bought her book, you still got it girl. I've been exercising 5 days a week and trying to eat very healthy ever since. I do weights 2 to 3 times a week and HIIT exercise 3 days a week. I eat about 1200 calories a day. I am 5 feet tall. At first, I lost some weight. I lost the 7 extra pounds I had gained after I started dieting, (back to only where I was when I started) and then about 3 more pounds.
What Can I Do?
Now I am stuck. I haven't lost an ounce in over 3 weeks and I'm exercising and eating healthy every day. I NEVER CHEAT! But I am so miserable because nothing is happening and I am trying so hard! I would like to lose about another 15 pounds. What am I doing wrong??? Am I eating too much?? (I'm practically starving at 1200 calories). Am I not eating enough? Am I exercising wrong? I'm so incredibly frustrated! Any guidance would be so appreciated!
