SOUTH PUGET SOUND, WASHINGTON
I'm 56, joined CK in March. I've been losing weight since 2000....long, slow journey.
I've had 2 years where I plateaued, or maybe it was maintenance....
Anyway, I believe I'm about 15-20 pounds away from where I think I'd like to be. I've not been doing as well the past 2 weeks and believe I've stalled out also.
I know I've been eating too many calories and not exercising as much as I should.
I use the diary every single day, even when it hurts! (and it hurts to see what I've consumed some days, believe me.)
I know that there is a pure mathematical formula to losing weight....use more calories than you take in.
Are you eating the same way you were when the weight was coming off? How about exercise? doing the same amount?
Sad but true...the older we get, the less calories we need. Can you shake it up a bit, trying new foods or different exercises?
My advice would be to log everything into your diary, try to stay low fat (and low sodium if possible) and exercise a bit more than usual. Set it in your mind that this will be a 7 day experiment.
I'd be interested in how you did.
