I started a healthy diet, fruits, veges low fat meats and dairy, I exercise regularly, I use internet site to log in my food intake an use the fitbit to monitor my steps, i incorporated weights 2x week, and even though my numbers look good on my dashboard, I am NOT losing or maintaining. I am gaining" Most days I feel dejected, discouraged and miserable. ;( I am always hungry..tired and frustrated. Any one has useful information that can help. Please! Thank you.
