Weight loss. Problems, solutions, what worked for you.
Battling weight gain/loss/gain syndrone for about 20 years. I can get it off with long term and hard work but it comes back. It seems that I can gain it overnight but takes weeks to get off.
I did use Nutrisystem and it did work. But basically it reduces your food intake in calories. I do not overeat at meals just snacking. When I have stress I tend to eat comfort food to feel better and that is my down fall.
I exercise a lot (2-3 hours a day and don't know why I can't burn off those comfort foot. My PCP stated to me that I have been been an exerciser for so long that my body has adapted to my exercise regimen and is no longer burning the calories it used to. He suggested using weights to gain more muscle as most of my exercise is aerobic. He says the extra muscle will burn more calories as muscle burns more calories than fat.
Another issue I have notice with this last weight gain was it was predominately around waist and kind of loose kind. I have never had the "beer belly" type stomach now I do (I don't drink beer).
Would like to hear from others there struggles, success, failures, etc. as I think we can learn from each other. I basically don't like the way I look but just can't seem to find a long term solution. With the new weight loss drugs was considering those so would really like feedback from those who have used them.
