I am a woman "of that age". Since hitting perimenopause life has been a REAL STRUGGLE. I have over 50 lbs to lose and I don't see it doing what I think it should be doing.
There are many factors that could be causing this and I would like to get some ideas of what I need to change / look in to.
According to MFP, I get 1200 cal a day. I'm not very active unless I go to the gym.
Monday: body works with abs class (no impact, uses 5 lb weights at most, 50 minutes), treadmill 30 minutes
Tuesday: water aerobics / water walking, 2 hours
Wednesday: zumba 50 min, yoga 50 min
Thursday: water aerobics / water walking, 2 hours
Friday: day off, just a short walk, errands stuff
Saturday: zumba 50 min OR water aerobics / walking walking 90 min
Sunday day off
I am limited to my activity due to injuries (old knee injuries and plantar fasciitis), so many modifications are needed during land classes. I try to burn around 1000 calories while at the gym. If I eat those back I'll only eat half.
When I'm not at the gym I have a very sedentary life behind a computer. so pretty much my only activity during the week is at the gym.
So, when I was younger and doing this I would have been in shape by now. I know getting older changes so much about how the body works.
I'm within my calories, I try to eat healthy. And I work out.
My issue: I'm not losing weight. I've changed my workout routine to see if that would do something. It pretends to lose weight one week and then I'm up again the following weeks.
I drink my water, I stay within my daily calories.
What can I change? What do I need to change?
If I talk to doctors, what kind of doctors do I need to talk to?
