I was the same. I'd be at WW for years on and off and sometimes I would lose weight and sometimes no matter what I did I stayed the same, towards the point I was diagnosed I had moved onto something like the Scarsdale diet. Basically I cut out bread and had very little in the way of potatoes, I ate very healthily - no sweets, biscuits, junk food etc loads of vegetables, chicken, fish, the odd bit steak and lean lamb. Towards the end the weight loss must have been Graves and my WW leader went from thinking I was sneaking food and lying about it to thinking I wasn't eating food and lying about it. As it was I was eating loads and getting thinner and thinner.
This time I thought I was becoming hypo which was the reason I not losing weight no matter what I do these days. I was diagnosed with some sort of inflammatory arthritis way back in September and started on steroids and hydroxychloroquine. On the strength of that being one autoimmune conditions too many I have been totally GF since the 18th September.
To my great surprise for some reason or another I have gone completely and utterly off sweet food and I haven't had a single biscuit, bar of chocolate - look at my name - the fruit and nut were pretty much two of my five a day and because of the IA I was always so exhausted I was pretty much ' powered by chocolate'. In that time had the cake a couple of times and been unable to finish it so I don't even bother now because I know I won't like it. That is totally out of character for me.
The weird thing is that in spite of having no snacks, junk food etc I am still not really losing weight - Maybe four pounds at the most that comes and goes for no particular reason. I can't believe that I have cut out so much of the sort of stuff that puts weight on and yet the weight isn't falling off me. It really is strange.
A medical student who was in with my GP recently suggested maybe the fat was turning to muscle and that could be the reason- muscle being heavier than fat but I can honestly say there is no chance of that.
So no I haven't be deliberately dieting but with the healthy changes to my diet and knowing how much chocolate I've stopped eating I can't understand why I am not losing more pounds. I'm not going to go back to WW though, there is no point, I know I'm not eating the wrong stuff - if WW did honorary degrees I'd have a First I've been going so long so I know I'm not doing / eating the wrong stuff and I know I get a reasonable amount of exercise.
My body is just weird at the moment - well probably just weird. In fact I think when I've lost good amounts of weight in the past it's been because I've had hyper phases, I was told about twenty years ago when the doctor and I both thought my thyroid was under active that in fact my results were borderline hyper - should have done something about it at that time but I was totally ignorant about all that sort of stuff back then I've just never become hyper enough to make me as ill as I was this time.
