    Feeling like you're doing everything right -- exercising regularly, eating healthy, cutting calories -- and still not losing weight? Here are some possible reasons you're not seeing the number on the scale move: Did any of these make you stop and think? I know I need to work on drinking more water throughout the day, and I definitely need to get up from my desk more often and move around.

    High cholesterol

    On January 11, I took a cholesterol test and was told my cholesterol had jumped to 253! Strangely, my HDL was 91, my LDL was 152 but my triglyceride was only 48.

    A NEW ME

    I am dealing with several chronic and debilitating illnesses but I am encouraged.... Lupus, fibromyalgia, osteo-arthritis in my knees and degenerative disc disease in my back, stress fracture in my foot along with a bone spur. I feel like I'm falling apart lol but God has been really good to me. No matter how fatigued or how much pain I feel I keep it moving.
