Unhappy I can't lose weight!

In the past did WW and lost 40 pounds and maintained it for a long time until I went back to my old eating habbits. Now I am about 20 pounds over weight and I want to lose it. I exercise 6 days a week, 3 days a week I take a spinning class and I burn between 500-600 calories based off of my HRM that I wear, and other days I either either do the ellitical trainer for a hour, walk up hill on the treadmill or the stairmaster. When I lost the weight the first time my exercise routine worked and I was losing inches like crazy the weight started to come off, but now it's not working. I can't afford to go to WW meetings and the gym and so I picked the gym over WW. I still write down everything I eat and I pay for WW etools that has all of the info that I need. The trainer at the gym said that my body is used to my routine and that I need to tried something else. But what else is there? I can't run b/c of my knees. Summer is coming and I want to enjoy it and the pool parties that we will have. Please help!

Re: I can't lose weight!

Does your gym offer other classes besides spinning? Maybe try some of those. Also, you didn't mention any kind of strength training. I just read in a fitness magazine that it still burns a good amount of calories. Plus, strength training will help you burn more calories throughout the day. I do strength training and cardio together for the best results. When I did ONLY cardio, it wasn't enough for my body. Give that a try! I also noticed that Weight Watchers allows dieters to eat a LOT of foods that I avoid. I see ladies munching on 100 calorie packs that are practically small cookies! That's not healthy! Even if it's 100 calories, it's not a nutrient rich food. I aim for more natural foods and lean protein sources and do best that way.

If all else fails, you might want to get your thyroid checked to make sure you are not hypothyroid.
