So fn useless! I believe I am wasting time counting stupid calories, measuring out food, cutting out anything even vaguely dessert like, exercising until I am in a state of constant pain. For what? Gained a-f'n-gain. I am almost done my period. I should be losing not gaining. I f'n give up. Its pointless. I am over 40 and fat to the point of obese according to all those BMI calculators. Guess I should just f'n get used to it cuz it doesn't look like anything is changing. F@ck!

I hate to see people frustrated with weight loss. Do you want some advice? 1. take a serious look at what you are eating. Are you logging everything, if so, some of your days look like you are not eating enough and skiping meals. 2. Also look at the types of food you are eating. I would suggest eating more whole foods - fruits/veggies. Limit the snack bars, frozen dinners. If you could incorporate more salads with your meals you won't be as hungry. 3. Increase your water intake. Not pointing fingers here - but if you are planning to drink alcohol while trying to lose weight, you will need to counter-balance that with extra water. Alcohol dehydrates you. When you are dehydrated you will retain fluid - which will = more weight on the scale. I would also avoid drinking regular soda. I would stick to 1500 calories per day, but choose better foods. Keep exercising, but maybe consider different exercises. You should not be in constant pain. Consider a personal trainer, or water exercises if it is joint pain. Or weight lifting to increase muscles and tone. Next I would look at what motivates you. Keep that in mind at all times. You can succeed if you want it bad enough. The weight will eventually come off. It gradually came on, so it will gradually come off.

You have gotten down before and you can do it again. As you age, it is harder but not impossible. Try a week of eating 1300-1400 calories a day and be strict. Get plenty of lean protein and high fiber foods. Keep exercising. It can take a long time get the fat off and get healthy. Losing weight is only half the battle, keeping it off is the other half. You have to make life changes that you can live with. You may need to keep playing around with your calories. Most women gain during their cycle because of water weight. Exercise can also cause temporary water weight gain. Google "why the scale lies" for some insight. Be in it for the long haul. Get proactive and find out the best foods to help you lose for women over 40. Do all kinds of exercise. It shouldn't cause horrible pain. There is zumba, pilates, yoga, strip classes, step, etc. You can even do them at home. A combo of strength training/circuit training and cardio a few days a week can really help. You can do it!
