Hi. I am also new to the site and need all the help and support I can get. I am 49 and have been a Type 1 since age 4 1/2. I also have other medical problems that contribute to my weight gain and loss. I am 5' 2" 1/2 and 195. I am cutting back on portions, eating more fruits and vegies, no white bread or white rice, chicken, fish and turkey. Eating hardly any red meat. I walk 3-4 times aa week, drinking more water and I am gaining instead of losing. My weight gain is causing other issues as well. Please, someone help me figure out what else I can do ??

Hello I'm new to the group. I've gained about 40 pounds since graduating high school 4 years ago so I'm trying to lose the extra and very unwanted weight. Looking for support.

Swimming tons! I have swam a mile 12 times since June 1. Love it.

I am maintaining a 5 pound weight loss (my goal was to lose 10 lbs). I feel good about that & I feel well overall. I need to think of another way to shake up my eating & fitness routines, and drop some more weight.

I weigh myself on Tuesdays. My aim around January was to lose 10 lbs by May. I've lost 6.8 lbs. which is really very good. Given my stressed-out, polar vortex winter, I could have easily gained 6.8 lbs. Joining a new gym that I ENJOY going to certainly played a big role.

The inexplicable thing is that 4 lbs came off in the past month. The change-up in my fitness routine? Better emotional health since ending things with my BF? The addition of the eggwhites--lol?

My pants fit funny--as in roomy.

4 month: down 5 pounds. Having fun hiking in the spring woods again + my new high intensity strength-training regimen.

I just keep trying new things & some of them work for me. Winters come & I carb crave. Past winters I would buy boxes of excellent, small cookies (usually pricey)--I was usually satisfied with half a cookie, or just one. This winter I decided not to buy a box. While I occasionally enjoy a small baked treat outside of the house, I think I have successfully broken a habit at home. And my pants fits much better.

3.5 months: down 4.5 lbs. Now that the weather is improving, I'm mixing in some hikes with my gym time. Recently enjoyed dinners featuring sauteed garlic, steamed broccoli, walnuts & a squeeze of lemon juice. With a side of chicken sausage. Slow & steady & making progress!

Slow & steady . . . wins the race, I hope. Three months of eating more carefully & lotza gym time = 3.5 pounds down. Broke up with long-time BF yesterday. Thought about buying ice cream sandwiches to console myself, but opted for a $2 bottle of citrus-flavored sparkling water. And I had a great rowing workout! Staying strong!!!
