Start Weight:(07 Apr 12) 243.0 lb
Current Weight:(20 Feb 14) 194.6 lb
Goal Weight:160.0 lb
following: HCB's own diet
performance: losing 0.4 lb a week

I am a 59 year old woman with the hope of reducing my weight for my health and to meet my fitness goals. 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.

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 progress photos are displayed below.

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

SABOTAGE! Is any one else running Into this?
Sometimes I think the husband (or wife or partner) may be worried you will lose the weight and be attractive to other people and they will lose you to someone else. Or, perhaps they just are clueless and doubt you "mean" it when you say you are changing your eating plan. My husband eats things I chose not to eat and has the good sense to "hide" his treats so i don"t even have to see them!

Silence is deafining
MICHAEL - it works best if you post under "Journal" entries instead of under topics. Journal entries can be seen by more people.

Greetings Abe. The best way to get everyone on board to see your posts is to make "journal" entries instead of forum posts. journals entries can be adjusted for everyone to see - and then you will pick up :Buddies: HCB

not shedding the weight- three weeks on ketogenic diet
It is possible you are not eating enough calories - that will automatically impact your metabolism. And be sure to keep the protein under 30% of your total with the fat in 60% range - hope that helps!
