My name is Patrice and I have joined this site with an interest in health and fitness and weight management. I saw the link on Joanna McMillans facebook page.
I am after some advise. I am 32 and had three kids in three years. My weight has mainly been stable and in the healthy weight range for my height. My diet has always been poor but my exercise levels high. This year I have gained close to 10 kgs! Nothing in my life has changed, besides age lol! So anyway this past 2 weeks I have uped my exercise and have been eating sooo healthy. I mean I have dropped coke (lots of it!) chocy, bickies, maccas etc from my diet but I have gained 1-2 kilos! I realyl would have thought that even without changing my exercies with a masive diet over haul that Iwould have seen the kilos coming off. What advise do you have? Is this normal? Maybe I need to see a doctor? I did have my thryod checed about 4 months ago and all was fine but maybe I should have that done again.
I am at a loss! I would love to see a dietition and have a personal trainer but just cant afford at at the moment.
I am mainly following low GI and eating really healthy, cut lots of suger from my diet, lots of grains, lean meats, legumes, water, yoghurt, fruit, salads, veg ect. I still drink alchol but could that be such an issue? What else can I do?
Thanks in advance for your advice. Am really bumed about not seeing even the slightest results and need some encouragement to keep it up!
