First I hope I am not breaking any rules as I am male but have found the mens forum to be dead. I hope to find help and see this is very active.
My problem...well my weight problem has been a very long time issue. Got hurt at work in the 80's and had cervical reconstruction in the 90's and have had issues ever since.
I have been up and down with weight. I first tried WW home 2 years ago using the points program. I lost 50 lbs with a target total loss of 75 lbs. I had a goal to lose weight to fit into ONE plane seat for a trip to FL. I was able to do it and after that trip I kinda just gave up and yes I gained it all back!
My daughter who is 25 lbs overweight (nothing compared to me) she asked me to buy the WW PP since she was buying it too. I just got it 2 weeks ago.
My first full week ended and I gained 1 lb. I keep leaving 10-30 points a day. My daily points are 57. I do eat a well rounded mix of food. I no longer eat fast food, eat much frozen WW and LQ meals, and make many meals at home too. I love veggies cooked not raw but I eat them. I do like lettuce raw no duh right!
I eat either cold cereal like cheerios or flake type and hot oatmeal.
I will have a WW or LQ meal for lunch or a tuna sandwhich (1/2 cup tuna, lettuce, on homemade bread) and supper varies, I love to use my pressure cooker so I throw potato's carrots and maybe a lean beef or chicken or the like and pressure cook it. I do weigh and stick close to portion size and I do over estimate point rather than under. I find myself eating snacks when I would not normally to get the points in. I have not used all the points yet and I still gained weight.
I do sit as I edit video and do computer work. With my back issues I do not exercise much but I do try and walk and try to activity things in when I can.
The old WW plan I lost weight from week one and now I am worried this may not work as well.
I tried to read the forums and I have seen others talking about points I did not see any that GAINED weight like I have.
Any help is appreciated.
BTW I am 52 years old and 6' tall. I have a goal of 225lbs as I am large boned and never could be fit less than that. Even when I was 17 I was 185 and felt weak so I went 200 and felt good.
