Avatar f tn I am a 59 year old female who has not lost any weight on an extremely low carb (south beach) diet after 4 weeks. Several years ago, I was successful losing weight using this diet, but not now. I had a benign brain tumor removed successfully in 2006 (after the weigth loss), and the surgery caused some numbness in my legs which gives me problems exercising, but I walk daily. I have been gaining weight since the 2006 surgery, and am at a loss as to what to do now. What's wrong?

However, large amounts of weight gain--with no change in diet or activity--usually hints at a medical condition. So make sure you rule those out first. First of all, there's nothing easy or quick about losing weight. I'm so frustrated with commercials and billboards that promise fast results. A fat camp means you'll lose weight while at camp, but then what happens when you get home?

649848 tn?1534633700 walking 5 miles/day should be taking some of the weight off, but maybe I need to do more. My neighbor will be leaving for the summer, in a couple of weeks and I'll probably switch back to my Yoga for Weight Loss dvd and the treadmill. Anyway, taking my weight this morning, of 149, that makes up 2 pounds for the week. Even though I know it's not fat gain and the number will go down later in the day, it's still disheartening. Okay, how about the rest of you?
Avatar n tn s keeping you from losing weight. By eating regular meals, you can better incorporate a mix of vegetables, protein, whole grains and healthy fats into your diet. Snacking, typically, ends up being fruit, candy bars, crackers, sandwiches, chips and all the things that aren't so good for you and tend to make you, either, gain or hold onto weight.
Avatar m tn Well, thanks, Barb, for going to the website! Since you had the trouble with parts being blacked out, you save me the trouble of going there. I agree with both of you: a person definitely needs a positive attitude to lose weight. One thing that has been true for me, though is that I have been very successful at losing weight.

Avatar n tn Your Thyroid could be not working properly. I was losing my hair & gaining weight rapidly & found out that my Thyroid was to blame. That is why I take a synthetic hormone for my thyroid now. I've stopped gaining the weight but before we had discovered what was causing all of my problems I went from a healthy 150lbs to an unhealthy 360lbs in about 6months time. Now that we have me on the synthyroid.
Avatar f tn Losing 10 pounds by Sept 23 is not a reasonable goal, as that's too much weight to lose in such a short time. Most likely the reason you can't stick with a "diet" is because you're cutting your calorie intake too severely. Nobody can stick to a diet in which they don't provide enough food. If you provide adequate calories of healthy foods, chances are you won't have any trouble losing the weight and keeping it off.
Avatar f tn The medications could have something to do with it, but it also depends on other factors, as well. For instance, have you had thyroid levels tested to be sure you don't have low thyroid hormone levels? Could you be suffering from insulin resistance or PCOS. Other factors include diet and exercise. Are you keeping calories in line? Do you get any exercise, at all?
Avatar f tn Hello I'm Rebecca and I'm 17 years old..I lost my dad on the 20/02/08 to Motor Neuron Disease..and now i have just lost my mum on the 30/08/14 to depression.. Does anyone know how to cope? Does anyone have any strategies they can share, on how to cope? Because at the moment i honestly don't know what to do. I feel lost, in-complete, I physically can not do anything. I'm physically and mentally drained.
Avatar m tn Yes it is possible , typically people usually lose weight. I have not heard of weight gain but its possible. Just get plenty of exercise and eat clean. Zoloft is generlaly not a drug that will make it hard to lose weight. My guess would be the drug itself has little to do with the weight gain, maybe you are eating more as a result of feeling better. Best thing is to ask your doctor about it. I have been on it before and it actually killed my appetite.
Avatar f tn I work out and eat healthy, while I was off the drugs I lost 22 lbs and I am afraid I will regain it. Has anyone out there been successful in keeping off the weight.
Avatar f tn t want to have a lot of goals expecially big ones like losing weight or making life changes. Cuz I know how it will go. So I will start with something small. Maybe try to ge out more if we get open door. Also try to get along with mom better. Maybe that. Can't really think big anymore cuz of my plans mess up. But hopefully getting aproved will get mom and me off each others backs if we go out and get a change of scenery.
Avatar f tn I'm about 13 weeks and keep losing weight. Not sure why. I eat, but i know I'm not getting the calories I need. I eat a lot of fruits and vegetables mostly because that's what's sounds good. I'm also eating a lot of protein too. Anyone else experienced weight loss?

Avatar f tn There is a woman on here, Barb135, she started a weight loss challenge for 2015. We are challenging ourselves to lose at least 1lb a week, she is super helpful and gives so many tips. I need to lose 50lbs still but overall have lost 10. What is working for me is keeping a food diary and tracking my calorie intake on here. My calorie limit is 1200 a day or 1300 max. With that, I walk if in outside just around my house.
