I've been a FF devotee for years. Let's just start with that: I have no problem with the requirements of the diet; I never have cravings; I rarely "cheat" (and when I do, it's with stuff like toast, not pie). Yet in the past year my weight crept up 14 pounds from where it should be. I attributed much of this to an activity slowdown caused by foot surgery in April and an injury in the spring that required physical therapy. I am now back and moving.
In May, I did the Smoothie Shakedown, which took me down four pounds. I did it for another week with no change. I've just finished the 5-day Hot Metabolism Booster, which I followed religiously and guess what? The scale didn't budge.
I'm back to Phase 1 Fat Flush, but extremely discouraged. I feel sluggish and tired. I'm riding a bicycle daily for exercise, and walking, but I don't feel I have much stamina. I take the FF supplements + CLA + Flora-Key, and I am never hungry during the day, but I would like to get rid of these pounds, which crowd my midsection and are making my clothes suddenly uncomfortable. I had hoped to lose weight over the summer and yet two months are gone already with very little movement. I'm in menopause but I'm not dead! I'd be glad of some advice that will get this weight off before much longer.
