Alex I have battled with weight issues all my life; done some dumb diets but also some really good ones which along with the amount of exercise I was doing it should have melted off me. But no and it was demoralizing.
Now years on and capable of WAY less excercise and will never be able to do enoughof it to burn hardly anything.
In the first year (in 8 months) of the Program I dropped 12kg effortlessly with a pathetic amount of exercise. But again after while of eating fabulously on the Program I actually put on a couple of kg's and after over 2yrs have not lost anymore.
I know it's not the Program because for most people eating such an excellent diet the weight comes off slowly but surely.
The one time I did Weight Watchers it brought me to tears, I was doing it perfectly and lost NO weight while it was falliing off my friends. The Leader had that horrible look on her face which said I KNOW you have been a pig because everyone else has lost weight.
It has been recently discovered by the Specialist GP I have been seeing that I have an underactive Thyroid; so there is the answer I have been searching for...............
I wish this had been discovered 20yrs ago! Once we get the meds right I hope the weight will start to move again.
Like me, maybe there is some underlying issue which is preventing you from losing.
I feel your pain!
ps good work on the blood sugars tho, that is a real positive
