Hello, Everyone. I am NC and I have been trying and trying to lose weight for about 2 years now. I am 53 years old and when I was around 49, I lost 20 pounds with Weight Watchers. I went back to work at a mostly sedentary job and quit smoking. The weight came back on in a very short time-probably about 6 months.
It was so easy the first time around-this time I am very frustrated. I have lost a wopping 5 pounds in the past 5 months. I had been back to Weight Watchers about 3 times since the gain, but I just can't get into it again. I must have about every weight loss book out there. I couldn't figure out what I was doing wrong. I don't eat much and I exercise regularly-walking, treadmill and Leslie Sansone videos.
I think I realize now that I am just not the same person I was 4 years ago. My metabolism has slowed down-not just because of age, but because I am aerobically far more fit as a non-smoker. Problem is the more I exersize the hungrier I am, but if I don't exersize, I don't lose an ounce. I had been using the hard version of the CK diary and within the past week I moved to this version.
Looking forward to hearing from you all-both your triumphs and frustrations.
PS-On one of the posts, I saw something about where you can read others diaries. Does anyone know how you can access that? Thanks
