Hi everyone, thank you for your comments. I always shake up my workout just to keep my body off balance. I was not on any meds.

I had a physical 2 months ago with no issues.

I did go to my doctor 2 days ago and asked if there is medication I can be put on to help with my weight loss efforts. She gave me an appointment to a nutritionist and I now have a subscription to Ozempic to help with weight loss.

I also went straight to the grocery store and bought tons of veggies, munk fruit sweetner and some meat. I started on a low carb diet that same day. So hopefully that will change things for me.

It was shocking to see the weight gain. But I hope to get it off before New Years.

While it's not at all unusual to plateau, a 10 lb. gain in 3 months (assuming your eating & exercise are on track) sounds like maybe something else is going on. Have you started taking any new medications? When was the last time you had a physical/ had bloodwork done? An under active thyroid, for example, can cause weight gain. Or you could be retaining fluid because of a problem with your kidneys, liver or heart.

I always find a shakeup in routine breaks out of a plateau for me. Last time I changed eating patterns, reduced my daily calorie intake by two hundred daily and added new exercises to my routine. Never quit!

I'm 57 and 2 years ago lost 70 lbs. Went from a size 18 to 4/6. I watch what I eat and exercise (strength/cardio) 6x a week.

Within the last 3 months I have put back on 10 pounds and around 5 inches despite keeping with my regime.

I am thinking about going on a strict diet and stopping exercising for at least 2 weeks so that my body will again start to react to the exercise; which it has stopped doing.

What do you think? Good strategy? What worked for you? I need to nip this in the bud before it gets worse.
