Looking for some Spirit Spotters
I don’t know if am can be of any help but I also was overweigh since I was a child and I also started to lose weight in my thirties.

So it can be done but you are going to want to have patience it will take time to lose all the weight and there are a lot of small mistake that one makes when first starting, it happens.

So don’t be so hard on yourself and just keep at it.

Dark Circles
Hi back to you. First you have to see a Dermatologist to know what type of dark circles you have.

You may have excessive pigmentation, thin and translucent lower eyelid skin overlying the orbicularis oculi muscle, and shadowing due to skin laxity and tear trough.

If you have hyperpigmentation, you can use Hydroquinone, Topical retinoic acid (RA), trichloroacetic acid, Glycolic acid and Lasers

If you have thin and translucent lower eyelid skin overlying the orbicularis oculi muscle you can do a Autologous fat transplantation or Surgery.

I keep gaining weight despite gyming.
First thing 6.6 pounds is only 3.3% of your bodyweight or 6.6% of you water weight this may look like a lot but it really depends on several factures, where you drinking enough water before you started dieting, because it is possible that you where dehydrated beforehand. Second thing is when you first weight in when did you do it, the time of day makes a big deference if you did your original weigh in at a different time you will get different results I normal weight 4 to 5 pounds more at night time then in the morning.

They already said it but I will say it one more time eating healthily does not equal weight loss you need to create a deficit.

Don’t worry about it… When I first started to lose weight I would go for a run/walk and afterwards because I was not keeping track of anything back them I would end up drinking a homemade lemonade that my wife would make me that had more calories than what I burned with my exercises.

% body fat
The purpose of losing weight or cutting weight is to retain as much muscle as possible so as to help lower your overall body fat percentage as much as you can.
So how do you do it?

First thing is your diet your body needs certain micronutrients and calories every day to keep healthy and to maintain your muscle mass there are other stuff too like ligaments cartilage and tendons. So when losing weight you are going to want to give your body all the micronutrients and calories it needs to help to prevent muscles loss. What am trying to say with all this is if you give your body only 500 calories a day don’t be surprise when you lose a lot of muscle with that fat.

Second thing is Time the faster you do it the more muscle you will loss with your fat, but this is only true at certain body fat percentage or if you will, the farther away you are from your ideal body weight the less resistance your body will have to losing fat.

Third thing is Stimulus like I already said you already have some genetic predisposition but if you can “males” you are going to want to do more, when going down in weight you are basically starving yourself your body is going to naturally wants to be at energy balance “or surplus”, so it’s going to need to lower it energy demands to accomplish this, it will start to get rid of anything it does not need but in the meantime it will use up some of it energy reserve “fat”. It will doing both at the same time that is where the stimulus “exercise” comes into play, if it is also getting a external stimulus telling it that, that muscle is in use it will look for something else or it will try too.
The goal with this is to lose fat at a 3/1 or 4/1 rate of fat muscle loss, but you will always loss some muscle.
