Current Weight:(29 Aug 15) 175.4 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: HCB's own diet
performance: losing 1.0 lb a week

I am a 60 year old woman with the hope of reducing my weight for my health and to meet my fitness goals of increasing muscle and losing body fat. Up until I was about 45 years old, I exercised regularly and watched all my food choices. In fact, when I was 40 years old, I was in the best condition. This was an accomplishment since I had been an overweight kid, and battled weight off and on for most of my adult life.

Then, menopause hit and I started a more sedentary job...and I also have hypothyroid! I just slowed down and didn't seem to care anymore about my health.

I have done organized programs at the gym, and food programs. I tend to do well for a while until I hit the dreaded plateau...and then I am discouraged and give up. I WILL NOT give up this time.

My profile photo is my trainer and me. My progress photos are displayed below.

Try adding magnesium tablets to your diet - they have a natural laxative effect.

A bit frustrated
I agree with you this is not what the FS community is about - that is my exact point! Where is the supportive comments and open-minded ideas when someone disagrees with our poster?

I am sorry to again comment @ Carol - but that tells me you might feel it is acceptable for others to be made fun of because of their beliefs and chosen weight loss methods. We all should be able to post our ideas without ridicule - but if I first am attacked, I will respond.

I was made fun of because of my earlier post about Gary Taubes and his book - and several other people also were told they were just wrong about their ideas.

This is what I commented on - about how patronizing and unwillingness to listen to other viewpoints in not helpful.
I am not challenging his beliefs or ideas - it is the way it is done that bothers me.

I suggest you read the entire thread to understand why the response is merited.
