Senior Weight Issues
OMG, it's been a battle. I'm 5'3 1/2 but for expediency, I always just say I am 5'4. I NEVER used to weigh myself. I found I did much better if I just went by the way, my clothes felt. 10 years ago, I went to Weight Watchers and I wouldn't allow them, to tell me my weight. Just to say if I lost or didn't. I know they thought I was a bit, batty. WHO CARES - It worked for me.
The last 5 years, I have given into the scale. I had to when my pants were too tight and all my clothes no longer fit. Nothing had changed. I was eating the same - not a big snacker. I eat more balanced now than I did when I was 105 lbs. Last year, when I was waiting for my gallbladder surgery, I was eating foods that agreed with me. Some of those choices were high in carbs! I thought for sure, I could lose the weight.
I am 10 lbs heavier than I was last year- I am at 180.
OMG, I said it- put it in print. That is why I am having problems with my knees, I believe.
I've tried to follow an eating program - nothing is working. I've been swimming 2 hours a day, 4 days a week and my weight has not budged. I go to the Gym. Obesity does not run in my family, so I don't know what the heck is going on. And my Doctor, who has the personality of a slug, just tells me what I already know. Eat less -Move more.
I am VERY upset by this weight. I'm thinking about going to a specialized weight doctor.
I feel so ashamed of myself.
