@FUNNYGIRLJESS you have been around for years. I know you know that nutrition and tracking it are what matter the most for healthy living and weight Remember: you can't outrun bad food choices and/or eating too much.

I STRONGLY urge you to track. It might be an eye-opener. Also, ensure that what you eat is filling - a lot of choices for snacks are far from it.

I have a giant sweet tooth and really cut down on sugar intake.
No I've never been good at tracking food...You are right, I need to do that because I'm constantly snacking!

Walking in itself doesn't have much benefit re weight-loss, however it is excellent for other aspects of our health.

* Do you track your food?

* If so, do you weigh all of your food and track everything that goes into your mouth?

* What and how much do you eat?

* Are you eating a balanced diet and in a healthy range?

* If you have been doing all the above, and there is still no result, have you spoken with your Dr about your concerns? It is possible that there could be something else going on which makes weight-loss difficult.

IF your weight ticker is up-to-date, then it is possible that you are already at a healthy weight for your body. This can make it very difficult to lose more. Your Dr will be able to determine this.

I have given up several times but then I get worse (back in pain with added weight and hating how I look in jeans again) and am back to where I started and feel so much worse about myself. So THIS TIME, I am not gonna STOP and keep reminding myself of this! :)

Walking is good for your health and increasing your activity, but it's not really a calorie torcher. For someone with a lot of weight to lose or just starting out, that little bit can add up to a great start. But when you're close to maintenance, you're more likely to carry a little more muscle due to being more active rather than lose more weight due to the increased activity.

-google first. ask questions later.

Of course that feeling has come up and the best way to banish that feeling is to make a stronger resolve. Losing weight is a simple formula of consuming fewer calories than you burn in a day. Since 1 pound is equal to 3500 calories it is necessary to have a deficit of 500 calories per day to lose 1 pound per week.
By choosing the best quality food in proper proportions will make balancing the food you consume more satisfying and less likely to overeat.
At the beginning of this year I started wearing a fit tracker and was shocked to see my calorie burn per day averaged less than 1400 calories per day With the daily walks taken. Tracking all your food is IMHO key to knowing how to achieve weight loss and create needed deficit. You may be burning less calories even with your walks too.
Do keep finding ways to achieve your goals and know your walks are still benefiting you with the stress relief, outlooks and expansive ways walk do.
Wishing you success and perseverance...and patience. emoticon

Do you ever want to give up when pushing yourself and not seeing results?
I take 1hr walks each day, or every other day, and don't lose weight!!

Ughhhh
