I just discovered this place through an internet search. I took a quick look around and decided to join.
I was normal sized as a child, and then in my early 20's I just ballooned up. I was 220 for a long time, at least 10 years. I tried super hard to lose weight, and I did get down to 210, which is my lowest adult weight.
I had a baby 4 years ago, and now it is impossible to lose weight. I mean, IMPOSSIBLE! I have seen drs and they just look down at me when the blood work comes back all in the normal range and tell me to eat less and move more.
I have gone though "I am going to lose weight darn it all" phases several times in the past few years. I tried every diet you can imagine. I even went down to 600 calories a day and lasted 3 months, and I didn't lose a thing. I know, it sounds impossible. But I am hoping that someone here might have some kind of idea of what can be wrong!
I had been doing 1400 calories a day for 3 months before that, so I figured, if that wasn't working, go down more. All I got out of all of that was a bunch of hair loss and being super hungry.
I also joined a gym in April and I have been very dedicated in going. I regularly go to several different classes and am there 5 to 6 days a week.
In Aug I said, who cares about the whole diet thing, it doesn't matter, and I haven't gained or lost anything. It's like I am this weird person that defies the rules of weight loss and gain.
I hope that all made sense, it's 1:30am. It's one of those late night type of things I guess. Hopefully someone out there has some kind of idea. I'm getting to the point where I am having a hard time talking myself into going to the gym, it seems so futile.
