weight loss
i was told by by doc tat i had to loosez 11lb as it was effecting my health (long story, its rubbish you know the way docs are about weight) but i thought i would do it for my sake (and being nagged to hell by the family).

i do about 2 hours of excersise daily eat what i thin is healthily, have my 5 fruit and veg a day easily, dont have large meals dont tend to snack etc.

im odd i actually dont like most junk foods lol.

not sure what i can try nex, my gp just tells me to do more excersise, i dont have time to so more i have a life and a 5 year old (not in that order lol).

any ideas what i can try next as its annoying me now he's said it lol

Weight Watchers might help. I'm a pretty active person and eat really good but I wasn't losing weight either, I started weight watchers more to help my mom but I ended up losing 10lbs too. The points system really helps because I never realized that despite the fact that I was eating healthy, I was eating more than I should have been for my size. It really does help!

There's so much out there, it's hard to find "the one" that works. NutriSystem was "it" for me. But, forgetting about which program, after ?? many years of "dieting" a few of the things from the NS program stuck that still help me with those last 5 pounds that I keep losing and gaining back. WATER and SALAD. When I notice that those 5 lbs are "ON", I realized that I had not had more than 2 or 3 bottles of water and/or I hadn't had any salad for a few days. When I add those two things back to my daily intake (at least 8 glasses of water and one salad a day) and made sure I had some protein each day...those 5 lbs go back "OFF".



That and (here's the hard part for me), nothing to eat after about 8 at night (not even something "healthy"). Sometimes it's the little things. Oh........and knitting.....knitting's good! You have to do something else with your hands after 8

11 lbs effecting your health? yeah that's crap. If the Dr said 100 lbs effecs health then maybe.....Unless you have blood pressure that will make you have a stroke or diabetes then weight is just a number. You are as healthy as you feel. And two hours of excercise a day, that's healthy!! Most Drs recommend only a half an hour a day. I bet you look great. 10 lbs is nothing to worry about. I think if you stress about yer weight then that effects yer blood pressure more. So I would say do what feels good, like the way you look and if anyone says anything about it tell them where they can go!

Eleven pounds seems like an odd number. Do you drink sodas? Even diet ones will keep you from losing weight. Maybe you need to substitute some things in your diet--like switch out your grains for whole grains and other low-fat snacks for fruits and veggies. That's all I can think of since you are already active.

I don't know about Weight Watchers but NutriSystem, though effective in helping a person lose weight, wouldn't be, in my opinion, the healthiest choice.

Because their foods are processed they are loaded with sodium. It's actually quite shocking to see the sodium content in their foods! Too much sodium is believed to raise the risk of high blood pressure in some people, leading to other health problems.

The recommended daily sodium intake is 1000-3000 mg and some NutriSystem foods have as much as over 700 mg per package! For example, their cheese pizza (one meal) has 760 mg of sodium. That's A LOT for one small pizza!

A great site for nutrition info is: http://www.mypyramid.gov/ and also, Discovery Health's website: http://health.discovery.com/centers/...n-fitness.html

Additionally you want to make sure you're getting enough water in your diet, sometimes that alone can make a huge difference!
