Hello all!

I've never been overweight, but was never really skinny either. I gained some weight during my late 20's that left me displeased with the way I looked and felt. It took a lot of work, but I lost almost 25lbs over two years before I got married. Since then, I've had one child, suffered a few chronic injuries that leave exercise (especially cardiovascular exercise), difficult and painful, and seen the return of some of the binge eating habits I had in my single days. That, along with a slowing metabolism, has resulted in an 8 pound weight gain. Over the last year and a half since weaning my first child I've lost the same 5 pounds 3 times!

Super frustrating.

So I am here to re-develop my healthy eating habits, do all the exercise I can (under the guidance of my physical therapist), and lose at least 5 of these 8 pounds for good. Or at least until I'm pregnant again.

looking forward to meeting you all.

btw: today hasn't gone well. I had a croissant for breakfast.

S/C/G: 143.6/143.6/127

Height: 5'1


I am 46 and never had a weight problem until I hit my mid 30's... I am small build and only 5' and 3/4" so you can imagine what a struggle it is to keep weight off. I am not one to want to be skinny. I like my curves but want to be healthy..my goal is 127 and I currently weigh 143.6 and am at my heaviest. My doctor just told me my bmi is 50%. I am not active and do not go to the gym, I don't walk because I have no one to walk with. I have lost weight at age 37 on WW till I figured out how to manipulate it and then it stopped working, then I did fat smash and lost 9 pounds and gained some back.. My freak out and go on a diet weight used to be 132 and now Im 11 lbs heavier than that. Ive also done medifast, and keto. I like my wine at least once or twice a week. I don't eat sweets, but I love carbs even though I am gf I love corn chips, grits, rice, gf pasta.... I rarely let myself have those and of recent have been doing keto with intermittent fasting and even no alcohol and still can't lose weight! I am starting to feel like giving up. I could definitely use some ideas and encouragement.

Hi there,

I'm in my thirties and struggled with my weight for several years. The sudden weight gain and inability to lose weight was linked to some health issues. I've lost the weight I wanted to lose and have been feeling healthy for the last few years. I'm now struggling to lose a few vanity pounds.

I keep keto and do some intermittent fasting. I've been fairly pleased with my body and have kept a pretty stable weight. I'm dating a body builder and about 2 weeks ago I started working out 3-5 days a week. My workouts are approximately 2 hours and consist of cardio and weight training.

A week and a half ago I celebrated Valentine's Day and a birthday. I spent a long weekend cheating. I now find myself up 7 pounds! I've been back on my diet for a week and the pounds keep going up. I'm incredibly frustrated.
