Re: Walking and gaining??
I actually have been watching my labels and eating ALL foods that are low in calories. Initially, I started the walking because I was trying to lower my BP (which I am happy to say I have managed to go off the Lisinopril) and just on Metoprolol now. I have a calorie counter on my Iphone and I have been at about 1200 a day until they take off the 250-300 burned in walking and then I am at about 900. So this why I just cannot understand it. My mother who has been a "weight watchers" woman for years keeps telling me that it is because I don't have much to lose and that maybe by walking I am gaining muscle weight. But, I thought muscle was suppose to start burning up the fat. Geez.........All my life I never had to worry. I was always under 100 pounds until I quit smoking 10 years ago and then got to my 40-50s. Now it is just a rediculous battle. Every 6 months I notice I keep creeping up and up. That is why I started this regimen in January. However, it is depressing that it is not doing anything after all the hard work.
Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life!!
