My situation was not exactly the same as yours but I also struggled with my weight even though I excercised on a daily basis. That's why I just wanna share. I used to run for 1 hour 3-4 times a week and practiced yoga 2-3 times a week. My weight was always around 190 pounds and would usually just go up and down. 190 pounds was not a healthy weight for me and I used to feel really overweight. I tried everything, and when I say everything I mean it ( starting from starving to dr.bernstein), but nothing worked. I would lose some weight but would usually gain more weight after. and being a daughter of a yoga instructor I always felt like I had to be fit. 2 months ago my co-worker told me about a meal repl;acement product that her mom used to lose weight and was really successful at losing it and keeping it off. i was skeptical but decided to try it and I think that was the best decision i have made in my life. I am down by 27 pounds in the last 7 weeks, I have a lot of energy, and I feel and look great.
So, what I am trying to say is that weight loss is not only about exercising but also about proper nutrition. I hope this would help.
