    Tired of trying and failing

    Hey. I'm 40, 5'4", 240 (give or take 2 pounds). I've done a lot of different things, quitting sugar, quitting carbs, meal replacement shakes, intense exercise, light exercise, intermittent fasting, and more. And guess what? None of it works. My clothes don't feel different, I don't look different and the scale certainly hasn't changed. Please can someone offer some kind of reasonable solution. I just want to be healthy.

    I understand completely, trying to be consistent with any of those things is not realistic. Do you have a friend or someone at work that would work on similar goals with you so you can motivate each other?

    Read "The Obesity Code", keep up with intermittent fasting and low carb diet. Consistency is the key. Don't give up. Join the facebook group for support: https://www.facebook.com/groups/obesitycodenetwork/

    I was in the same boat as you until I started taking redtea. My friend Sierrah showed it to me. Its best thing anyone has ever showed me. So I want to share with others because I know the struggle. I have already lost 26 pounds. I didnt have to change my diet or exercise more. I have been getting mine mine with this coupon. https://davyboi22_redteax.pay.clickbank.net/?cbitems=2.1&;cbskin=20480&cbfid=36210&cbexit=58 I promise you want be disappointed.

    Have you ever tried a buddy? A friend or family member to meal prep and exercise with you? I am in the same situation and I do not have that. It would help me so much. I am starting to force myself to eat a small side salad with every meal, limiting my meat intake, upping fruits and veggies, lots of water and just exercising 30-60 minutes a day. That is better than my normal poor diet and no exercise.

    That’s very discouraging but don’t give up. If your doc has ruled out medical issues then careful eating habits and more exercise is needed. I found using MyFitnessPal app helped track things as I added some weights and walking in the pool for 45 min per day. After a couple of weeks the weight started going down and after 6 months it’s nearing my goal as got stronger too. Best wishes.

    RE: Tired of trying and failing

    I've been there too. Intermittent Fasting on an every other day schedule (stopped eating at 8 pm, did not eat again until roughly 6-8 pm the following day) lost my first ten pounds. Then it seemed to stop helping and I was having difficulty sticking with it. I am trying NOOM now, and the accountability seems to be helping...a couch texts you daily if you do not log foods and if your food choices are out of line. Foods are categorized as green, yellow or red depending on calorie density. Too early to say if it works, but it is definitely helping me be more consistent. MyFitnessPlan.com is a free food and exercise tracking app with a great facebook page with hints...many swear by it and as long as you can keep up the food logging it may help. good luck!

    RE: Tired of trying and failing

    I have similar issues. I only measure my size and track food. I also post positive statements where I can see them. I get outside as much as possible. Its a slow process, however, I have seen some results. I also do the virtual walks for motivation. I currently am doing a amerithon 3521 miles in a year. I am behind in my miles however I will finish it! (runtheedge.com)

    RE: Tired of trying and failing

    I am also overweight. I seem to have the best results using fitness pal app to track my food intake. It makes me think twice before eating something I shouldn't or too much. Speaking of too much...making your portions smaller and eating something every 4 hours seems to jump start my weight loss. In between sensible meals having healthy snacks. I keep a small snack baggie with 15 almonds in my purse for those times I'm not home. Frigo light string mozzarella cheese, hard boiled egg, pb & celery and fruit are my go to snacks. I rarely feel starved! Once in awhile you can still have a cookie just not 12! (My old way of eating)

    Try joining some high-Intensity sport and become competitive, it would help... of course the sport you have interest in, would only help to get competitive!

    RE: Tired of trying and failing

    I am 45 years old and weighed 248 in December. I joined Noom the day after Christmas and have lost 33 lbs. They help explain the why and the triggers. Just a different approach. Not for everyone, but has worked for me.
