I am a 60 year old women about 16 months ago I went on a diet I was a massive 155 kilos. The first 14 months great lost weight every month, I am now 90 kilos. Still over weight and I would like to get down to 60 or 70 kilos.
I do Water Aerobics 6 days a week for about hour to hour and half, and I work my body very hard. I walk more and ride a bike.
I eat healthy smoothie fruit and veg for breakfast, lunch is a banana and salad for evening meal normally with chicken no skin. If I snack it would be a few grapes, Apple, pear.
I don't eat ready meals etc anything I do eat I make from scratch, I have given up sugar apart from sugar that is in food.
And for the last two months I have not loss any weight an odd pound it is very demoralised and disappointing.
Health wise I did have type 2 diabetes and are now diabetes free as from April, as it is now controlled by diet and exercise. So really good news.
My body shape has changed due to the exercising, I really don't get that muscle is heavier than fat? A pound of fat is the same as a pound of muscle.
I understand that sometime your body goes into starvation mode, I understand you sometimes loss inches and not weight. I both weigh and measure my body once a week and everything apart from very small changes nothing is moving.
Any advice will be greatly appreciated. My doctor said I am doing all the right things and my diet is fine well something must be going wrong
