I am female and 50 and I know that those two facts create their own barriers to weight loss. I have been on weight loss programs before and the scale moved steadily downward. Right now I am on a 1200 - 1500 calorie diet and I walk 2 miles plus a day 6 days a week. This use to be a recipe for 2-3 lbs of steady weight loss a week. Now, I am barely losing a pound a week.
I'm hesitant to lower the calorie intake. I am already going to bed hungry which makes it hard to sleep. I am reluctant to increase the walking because I am almost crawling home now because of hip and leg pain.
Does anyone have any incite? Does anyone have any suggestions?
