weight loss???....

Postby topcatt72 » Sun May 10, 2015 6:44 pm

Hi all,...
A few weeks ago I weighed myself as I knew I'd put on some weight and wanted to know exact figures as a start for me loosing weight...
I started taking slimming shakes 2 times a day, and then a meal....apart from this I drunk only 2-3 coffees (whitener and no sugar) and bout 2-3 litres of water, for snakes I ate fruit......I did this 4 a week then weighed my myself and found I was still the same weight!!!.....
As my fibro /f.a.i is worse from waist down I find it extremely hard to exercise.... But I do try!!.... I walk to local shops and around town (on crutches) plus any other places we go out to on a day out but it's not working!!!
Please please please...... Can anyone give me advise or point me in the right direction so I can finally lose and exercise so I can go back to the Wight I used to be and maintain it..........I'm so sick of being no my size and I hope loosing the weight will take some pressure off my hips, legs knees and feet.....

Thnx :-) :-) :-)

Hi,

I can really empathise with you as I used to be a size 12/14. Since fibro took hold I've gone up to a sisd 20 which feels awful. I do have under active thyroid and I'm on 175 mg s day but that's not helping. I do walk when I can but my arthritis has flared up so I can't walk far at all.

if the thyroxine doesn't help me soon, I plan to ask for weight loss surgery. I hardly eat cake etc as hubby is diabetic so we're on a low fat low sugar diet.

I'm sorry that I can't be any help, I wish I could. Have you talked to your gp? He may be able to suggest something.

I'm not really keen on 'slimming' replacement foods like shakes, I think it is much better to have real food :) The key to weight loss is reducing your calories - you may still have been taking in too many calories with your two shakes, 'normal' dinner and fruit. I have a friend who has had great success losing weight by using one of those calorie trackers - the one she used was My Fitness Pal, but there are others. If you record everything you eat, it will calculate the calories so you can see how many you are consuming in a day - you may be surprised! Try and eat as many vegetables as you can - they are low calorie so you can have more of them :-) And watch your portion size of the other stuff - even 'healthy' food like fruit will make you put on weight if you eat too much of it.

Good luck with it :-)

Also to remember.....muscle weighs more than fat. As you work out a little more you may lose fat but gain muscle, therefore the scales may be slow in moving. I agree, eat regular foods in moderation.

We're vegetarian so eat lots of fresh veggies. I tend to fill us up on veggies, hubby sometimes says his plate is all veg! I do wstch potion sizes as hubby has a very healthy appetite! Even if we go out for lunch I tend to stick to a plain jacket potato or omelette. So far the extra throxyine doesn't seem to be having much effect but I'm due to see my gp st the end of the month so I'll speak to him about my weight then.
