Getting Back on the Wagon!
Hey fellow Rockstar parking sticker person! You'll be the new cool kid in town around holiday shopping time trust me Smile The water training is definitely your way to go to maintain muscle movement and achieve weight control. Once you feel better you can move from aerobics to laps then maybe on to other things... Balance your slow and steady work outs with a healthy diet and you'll be golden. I honestly believe anything is possible at this point. But as far as your sticker goes, I got mine at age sixteen and it used to embarrass me, now it just embarrasses my husband but after a tough workout or a bad knee or back day I am glad I have it .Smile

Is Atkins the only common denominator? I was told NOT to do Atkins by my doctor even with having insulin problems because I have a history of Chronic migraines and am on migraine medicine ... why that is I'm not sure so instead i did research on other diet plans as well as tried different meal systems and created my own diet system. Not much information but maybe speaking to your doctor will help?

Getting really disillusioned
Sounds like you've already received some amazing advice and while at this point you're both looking for suggestions but mostly wanting to vent extreme frustrations. Here are a few tips several women I know have used to realign after once they have hit a plateau after a nice weight loss (such as over 47 pounds)

1. Change every Routine
A. Exercise routines make your body complacent and don't really try your muscles or your HR nearly as much anymore

B. Diet plan changes throw your metabolism off balance making it second guess what your body is processing next also allowing you the same advantage of working against muscle memory in the exercise routine. But I stress the same as the other friends above If you drink over 1.5 gallons a day now then make it 2... It has been proven that people will continue to eat because they feel hungry even when they are not due to being dehydrated.

C. Don't step on the scale for at least a WEEK, when you become so preoccupied about the numbers the plateau is inevitable. I'm guilty of it, everyone is guilty of it.

Good luck and I wish you the best
