@edgebee:  *HUGS*  Sorry you’re struggling with this.  What is HCG injections?  If that seemed to work for you, would you be able to continue doing it?

@edgebee:  Aw man 🙁  I am so sorry you’re going through this.  The conflicting information out there is SO frustrating!

All I can suggest is to use your anger, and take up kickboxing.  Beat on a heavy bag 🙂  If nothing else, it might be satisfying.

 

Good luck!!

You are diabetic? I am too.   Have you tried going straight into Phase II of the south beach diet? That’s what my doctors told me to do. I cut out carbs, sugars and fats.  My weight dropped FAST  


Don’t think of it as a diet, it’s a life style change. 

 

And, a healthy weight loss is about 1-2 pounds a week with diet and exercise.

@edgebee:  My only suggestion is to talk to your doctor rather a sale-type gym person. Your doctor will give you helpful, unbiased advice about what will work with your age, pre-existing medical conditions, and abilities. There is not a one size fits all solution and your doctor could give you some personal attention.

I understand your struggle – it sucks, it is so hard, and it impacts every facet of your life.

Gosh, it sounds like you are doing everything right to lose weight. I’m sorry your body is not responding. Has your doctor looked into why you aren’t able to lose weight? Do you have a thyroid imbalance or something?

Weight loss takes time! You’ve only been working out for a few weeks? Keep at it…slow and steady wins the race! Gimmicks and injections are temporary fixes. It takes a lifestyle change to maintain a healthy weight. People are shocked at my diet and just how active I am and say they could never do it. Of course they could! And once you become accustomed to it, anything else just feels wrong. Hugs!

@edgebee:  ((HUGS))  I’m so sorry you’re struggling with this.  First of all, though, I have to tell you that you are not 60 pounds overweight if you’re 170 at 5’2″.  More like 30 pounds to get to a healthy BMI.  140 pounds at 5’2″ isn’t considered obese or extremely overweight.  A goal of 110 is probably unreasonable depending on your body type.  If you’re small boned and reed-like, yeah, that’s a model’s weight at that height.  But the average woman’s bones aren’t that small.  Base it on your wrist measurement.

Give yourself a break and maybe stop trying  so hard.  Losing weight isn’t the only thing in life!  Get happy first and then focus on your weight.  Get happy with yourself – there’s much more to you as a human being besides just what you weigh.  Everyone has struggles in life and hating your body is not constructive. 

All the gimmicks, powders, diets, etc. probaby have your metabolism out of whack, too.  Keep it simple, eat when you’re hungry and understand you have to get your mind right before your body will follow suit.  Try some yoga!  You need some relaxation and pampering right now.

I could have written this. My weight is a constant problem for me. If I don’t watch every single thing I put in my mouth I put on weight. It’s so mentally exhausting recording everything you eat & every calorie you burn with no results. I don’t have the answer but I wanted you to know you are not alone.

@FauxBoho:  Based on your picture from yesterday’s thread you look very thin, fit and healthy to me.  I’m so shocked at this response, lol …  you’re tiny!

Apology for threadjack.

@FauxBoho:  I know how it is.  I feel like I lose and gain the same darn 10 pounds, over and over again.

@edgebee:  the trainers at the gym are probably the last qualified people to tell you how to lose weight especially if you are diabetic.

Continue working out for health but truth is its about 80/20 for weight loss (80 percent diet, 20 percent excercise. Go see a dietician ( which your insurance should cover as you are diabetic) and ask her to write you a healthy weight loss plan. Fad diets (HCG, ect) won’t help you maintain long term weight loss. It will be ok, see a qualified professional and you will feel better once you get a plan in place!

Aw, I’m so sorry 🙁  That must be so frustrating!  What kind of diet does your Dr. suggest?  Working out is awesome, obviously, but it’s not really going to help you lose weight.  It’s a great complement to a diet plan though.  I have no experience with diabetes, but have you considered Weight Watchers?  I have been doing it since May and have lost almost 30 pounds.  I have a long way to go, but it’s coming off very steadily!

I agree with PPs–if you’re watching your sugar and carbs and are still unable to lose weight, you should definitely talk to your doctor (or a nutritionist) to help you figure it out!
