    Discouraged

    Twelve years ago I lost 60 pounds.And after maintaining a weight loss for that long,I know what works for me. I only eat 2000 calories a day &,because I don't have a car, walk about 7 miles a day.But the thing is for the past month,I haven't been able to maintain it.My goal weight was 180 & for the pass month,I've weighed between 183 & 188. And I just hope that somebody can tell me what I can do about it.Cause I've gotten really discouraged about it & I just want to give up,but,I don't want to do that either,because I lost it for health reasons. Thanks,BDuthe

    RE: Discouraged

    Look at when the fluctuations occur during the month, look at what you are eating as far as salt and water retention, look at changes in medication. Are you newly on statins? BP meds? hormones? look at changes since your weight was under control. I think you will discover the changes and remedy the problem. Best wishes!

        The only medication I've been on,even before this started to happen,is sertraline,so I don't think it's that. But you gave me some things to think about.
