I have been following the forum for a while but haven't posted yet, but I felt it was time as I need a bit of support.
I have always been overweight and have been through a few diets (weightwatchers, atkins, slimming world) all of which have worked for a bit but then everything comes back on when I try a live a 'normal' life.
I have an underactive thyroid too, which is being controlled and I believe is at the right level now, and I know I always need to be much more careful than most with what I eat, but things are getting tricky.
I have been fit and healthy for a long time, have done the couch to 5k and did my first 10k last September, all still overweight but heading in the right direction, but now I have hit a wall. In January I tore a disc in my back and I am barely able to move so exercise is now down to a bit of a walk when I can manage it.
I have been really watching what I eat and I just can't seem to shift any pounds at all, and while I wouldn't worry so much about this in the short term, I am getting married in October and I need to get the weight off for my big day.
I would love to hear if anyone has any helpful tips or suggestions as I really need to know I can do this.
Finally - I am slightly dissdisillusioned with the MFP calorie counter, as I really don't know which one to believe. Today for example 1 had a medium apple (80 calories) with breakfast and 2 oranges (137 calories) as a snack. 217 calories for being healthy, whereas a large glass of lovely Pinot Grigio would only be 190 calories. Surely that can't be right.
Anyway - thanks for reading, and I'm looking forward to hearing from you all.
