I made a career change four years ago. Ever since I've gained weight. This year? Yep!!! I only hope and pray that I'll succeed in weight loss in 2012. I never realized how much a career change can affect body metabolism.
Now I realise what they meant by the middle aged spread ! 40 something and looking to loose the lbs this month. Yes definitely put weight on, first time in my life my metabolism has slowed down; I need to get up out of this chair more, sat here writing and reading too much
I have had friends who have battled with weight issues and it was not easy for them. Some people seem to eat less than others and still put on weight. I have been fortunate, but it I do know that some women go through a lot to lose weight and sometimes in order to fit a 'body image' that is not realistic.
Gained a lot of weight! Gonna do something about it in 2012 - I have to - hitting that age where the extra weight is becoming very dangerous! I want to be there to watch the world end on december 21, 2012!
I just looked into that Lose It app, thanks for the tip- it looks very helpful! If I meet my goal it will be in July, but I'd be happy to lose half of my goal honestly...Good Luck Livelonger-maybe I'll see ya over there!
I lost 20 pounds and believe that climbing stairs did it. I live 3 flights up and have an elevator, but decided to try the stairs as often as I can. This adds up to once or twice a day and it's not hard at all.
I lost a lot in the early part and gained since September although my overall weight loss since January has been 1st4lb which i'm very pleased with. Not to shed another couple and i'll be where i'm happy
I lost 20 pounds and think that is was all about climbing three flights of stairs a couple of times every day, instead of using the elevator all the time. I also don't eat and snack all day. A lot of foods are toxic to me, so I have to truly be hungry in order to eat something.
I gained a bit of wait, thing is, because I spend hours of the day constantly at my PC..I don't get excercise..but because I work hard, I usually go a long time without eating as well, I so think that balances it out lol
What's in extra pounds? Just be merry! Not true. And No, it's not me. And I never was like that. Max I was - 83 kg after my first baby when I started accelerating my unwanted weight. I could've been like that but I put mental stop on that acceleration.It was one long and painful process because I knew zilch about nutrition. Yes, it's in your genetics and what food you prefer,stress and lots of other factors, but you can fight that. Last year(or was it the year before?) I threw away my rusty scales. I do not need them to keep me in shape. I know what I can and CANNOT EAT, if I want normal weight. Your weight is your choice as almost everything in life. And if you want to lose a couple or more pounds - you start with your dinner menu, NOT WITH GYM. You even do not need gym if you want to save money - you can do simple aerobic and walking/jogging/swimming/whatever,any exercise, but first EAT RIGHT,real food - not sugary fatty junk pig style. Let your body to get used to it. It will need some time and little effort. I will never going to gain weight again, because I know how to control it with my plate, spoon and fork. It's very powerful feeling, I love it.
I was on Weight Watchers last fall and broke my scale when trying to put in a new battery. Anyway, that happened in December and I just bought a new scale and had sadly gained 10 lbs in one month. That's what happens when you figure you'll go all out for the holidays! Not as bad as the year I went on birth control and gained 30 lbs though...
I have the opposite problem! I keep losing weight! I'm down to 92lbs, and trying to gain some weight back. Why do all the shows on T.V. have programs about, "How to Lose Weight?". Why not, "How to Gain Weight Correctly?" I have written to different shows with that question. Still, no results. After being Anorexic since 1976, it's hard to eat. Any suggestions?
Nope, I ate like a horse ... LOL! ... and didn't gain any weight, and if I did, I would not worry too much. I go to the gym three times a week and tennis keeps me fit! And running is a great way to burn calories!
I lost FAT but I didn't lose weight. I increased my weight in fact. Muscle weighs more than fat. The scale is a poor tool for measuring health. Poor tool for measuring appearance for that matter.
People need to strike the term "lose weight" from their vocabulary and start saying "lose fat" because the two are very different things. I could tear out all of your bones form your body and you'd lose a lot of weight...but you'd probably not be happy with the way you look.
Unless someone has ever struggled with weight issues, I think they would have a tough time fully understanding how much of a struggle it can be for someone. I have struggled with weight issues all of my life.I can see...
I'm not kidding... everybody has a problem losing weight... but I have never crossed 148 pounds.... I'm 6 ft but only 142 pounds... I drink/eat everything... no effect.... I'm healthy... I can run 5 miles without...
Rats, rats, and double rats! I've gained 5 lbs in about 10 days pigging out on anything and everything. Five lbs for me is like a ton. I recently lost 20 lbs the last year. Been going to Curves faithfully 3 times per...
I can only speak for myself but I think I've got a case of the Hubpages Spread! What's that you say? The Hubpages spread is the 10 lbs you put on after spending super long hours writing and posting hubs- plus editing...
