Any comments out there on how much slower the pace for losing weight has been since hitting midlife?? I love Calorie King and the opportunity for journaling food and exercise. I wish there were more women discussing their midlife challenges, and more important, women sharing the solutions they've come up with, as to what 'works for them'.
I've taken notice of the times that I have faithfully stuck to journaling and regular exercise, and that it seems to take a while before it shows up on the scale as a loss. Dropping 5lbs here or there is no longer something that is as easy as it used to be. Since menopause, I more often notice that I lose inches before it shows up in lost pounds on the scale. As long as I am feeling healthier and stronger, and my clothes are loosening up, I'm happy and trust that it will eventually show up as lost pounds. I've learned to not get so impatient in that first month or two of 'getting back on track'. I've had to stop using the almighty scale as evidence that my healthy eating and exercise is paying off. Now, if I can just stop the annual tradition of holiday 'entitlement eating' that gets me into so much trouble! Glad to be back. What a blessing to have technology and a website like this!
Has anyone else noticed this delay on the scale?? Would love to hear feedback from you! Lauren
