Inspiring to read all these threads. Keeping weight off is NOT easy.
I routinely gain about 7 lbs over summertime- kids home/cooking all the time , cook-outs, a glass of white wine, ice cream, etc....It adds up and by September 1 I’m up those pounds.
Normally I use calorie tracker, steer clear of trigger foods and exercise extra and I can drop those pounds quickly.
But not this year! I am almost 50 and gosh if I am not having a really hard time losing it using my usual methods!!!
Is it the aging process? Does it get harder as we age? (Not that it’s ever easy) i have been diligently tracking every morsel I eat, and seem to have plateaued. I exercise about 4 days a week and really would have hard time kicking that up long term. I also adjusted the allowed calories on my diet tracker - less calories to reach goal faster. It is not fun!
Anyone else have reach a stop like this in weight loss? And how did you get past it? Any advice is appreciated. I have 2 pounds to go to get to pre-summer weight and 6 pounds to goal weight.
