WTFrog ;) !

Decided it was time for that midlife check up to make sure everything is in working order. I live with an autoimmune disorder so trying to be as active as I used to be is challenged. Long story short, I started taking Garcinia in October 2016, I finally got to buy a whole size smaller in jeans. YAY! This week I went in for a check up & the scale said I still weight the same. Boo!!! And to add further insult, was told my blood pressure is elevated. Due the nature of my affliction, I try to eat a diet that keeps flare ups in check. So I am completely baffled how I still weigh the same?!

Hi Janellk

Welcome to the weight loss forum.

Take a look at the Welcome Newbie post in the Pinned post section at the right hand side or at the bottom if your on a mobile. Have a look at the nhs 12 week plan, many members have had success following this plan. Use the BMI checker to work out your daily calorie allowance.

Below the Pinned posts are the Topics where members share a range of weight related subjects.

Take your measurements at the start together with a photo so you can see the changes on the days the scales don't move.

We have daily weigh ins so why not come along and join us. You can find the weigh ins on the Home page in the Events section on the right. Just click on the post in Events and record your start weight and any loss/gain or maintain for the week.

To get the most of the forum be active, share tips, recipes and experiences. Read some of the posts they are very motivating.

Have a good first week.



Jane I feel your pain! 2 weeks in & although I lost 4lb last week I've stayed the same this week even though I've been really good!

Check your bmi calculator details and make sure you are eating enough. Don't eat less than it says. You are better really to eat somewhere between the middle and top. I ate less than I should at the beginning and was told by someone who has now left that I should do this because although people think they always need to eat less all the time this is not always the case. If you do not eat the amount in between your bmi index your body starts to believe you are starving it and turns you foods into body fat to ensure that it can continue. Fats weigh more than normal calorie which is why it doesn't always work. I thought it strange but always had eaten less than other family members and was always fatter, so decided to try it. Now I am eating more and losing weight. Who would have thought it! At last.
