...lose a little weight in menopause???? I've been keeping a food and exercise journal, working out 4-5 days a week and at least once a week upping the intensity by introducing a harder workout b/c I want to progress at the same time not overtrain or kill my joints. I'm not counting strict cals b/c that doesn't work for me, but I'm making healthier choices and watching portion sizes. After 4 weeks I weigh more than when I started. My blood work is all normal. I don't drink alcohol so no splurges there. I work full time at a job that I'm walking all day so no sedentary life style there. I know all the kind sentiments that people say such as "maybe you're eating more than you think", or "weight is only a number", or "just be happy with who you are" but I'm seriously frustrated here! I've reviewed past journals pre-menopause from a few years ago and I'd eat more and easily drop 2-3 lbs in one week! Just need to vent and ask for any success stories or ideas to keep me motivated.
