Does anyone here have a naturally slow metabolism? And/or prone to stress? (Just internal stress). I’ve been struggling for so long and I’m usually maintaining my weight and when something bothers me my body holds onto my weight. I want to lose 50-60 more pounds and this is so hard to do. When I strength train, the scale shows me a higher number. Not sure what I should do. It’s funny, if I starve myself, I still can’t lose weight. (That’s not what I’m doing, just an example!) I even tried upping the exercise on elliptical but then my weight is down .4 or .6 lb for that week. I have lost quite a few diet bets since the scale isn’t cooperating! Thoughts? Ideas? And no, I don’t have thyroid problems. But I’m super sad these days and just trying to push myself to stick to my exercise and the way I’m eating, I should be a size 2! Thanks all!

I found the Gabriel Method (book and courses) to be really helpful at addressing weight loss struggles when they aren’t all about food. He actually changed how I see my weight. Might be worth looking into. Take care!

Same for me! The only thing that works is low carb and intermittent fasting. If I start eating carbs again the weight comes back

  • Hi! This is my second...maybe third attempt at a Dietbet challenge.
    Between 2008-2013, I had lost 70 pounds and was running half marathons and finished a full marathon! Everything seemed to be going great, but then I started feeling different. Little by little, I began losing motivation, stress eating, and becoming withdrawn. In the span of one year, I, not only gained back the 70 pounds, but also added 20 more. As much as I tried, I would lose some weight and then gain it all back. I couldn’t figure out what was happening until late 2018. My work environment had become so toxic, that I was ready to end my life. Luckily, a good friend of mine could see how bad it had become and I went to my doctor. He told me...not suggested...to seek psychiatric help immediately! I was diagnosed with severe major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and avoidance personally disorder. As hard as it was to learn this, it also gave me a lot of answers. After 4 months of out-patient therapy, I regained my life back and found a new sense of hope and learn to live a life for me. Oh...back to the weight. Currently, I weigh 260 pounds and with focus and determination, I know I can achieve my goals and begin to see myself in a whole new light.

You can do this don’t give up, I understand and for me just .5 pound a week is a win because I can maintain that. Just start small and keep going!!


I find weight loss helps my emotional health so much
