What other women out there can’t lose weight despite healthy diet and exercise?

I have done everything doctors, nutritionists, magazines, and websites have recommended to get in shape and it is just futile. I need to lose about 30 more pounds. I have lost 14 lbs since January 1. Thats 14 lbs in 9 months. I have done low calorie diets with the healthiest foods available, drank water by the gallon, worked out 5x/week- aerobics with weights in addition to “parking far away and taking the stairs” and “taking 10,000 steps a day”, eating small meals, and drinking tea. I have tried increasing calories following the advice of the “your body is in stavation mode” logic. I have had my thyroid testing including TSH, T3, and T4. I have been tested for blood sugar problems. Please is there anyone else who has followed the accepted philosphies on getting in shape and it hasn’t worked (if so, did you find something that did)? Does anyone else think there is more to weight loss than what doctors spew about calories in vs calories out?

    Sad to say that’s the story with MANY people. I think you should decide on a perfect weight and focus on that picture daily and “see” yourself at that size and weight as you go through your routine. I learnt that from the “Secret”.

    i too am struggling to lose weight. i go to the gym religiously and have a trainers to consult anytime i need them. i eat healthy, low sodium, low calorie, low fat, high protein foods. do i lose weight? nope. i’m not one of those women who think that they are overweight, but are really fit and don’t realize it. i am truly overweight. although i remain overweight, my doc says that i am healthier by continuing this lifestyle. she continually reminds me that it took years to put on the weight and it may take years to lose it.

    i don’t have any advice for you other than to keep at it. think of it this way…you’ve lost 14 pounds in 9 months. that’s 56 pounds in 3 years! i put on my weight 5 to 10 pounds a year and it may only come off that quick…but gaining or losing, every pound counts!
