    Default I can't lose weight, no natter what I do.

    Things I did this last year to improve my health:

    Swam for 1 hour twice a week, went to gym twice a week as well. I went to gym Mondays and Wednesdays, swam Tuesdays and Sundays. FOR AN ENTIRE SUMMER, and didn't lose a single lb of weight.

    Stopped drinking for nealy two months, plus calorie counting. For months, off and on. Still no change. My diet isn't even bad. I make a lot of my own food. I am quite knowledgeable on nutritional diets. My fitbit says on average I burn 3k-4k calories a day (I work blue collar). I hardly went over 1500-2000 calories in food consumption (which is technically starving myself, since I am 275-280lbs).

    Tried Keto, but too expensive to do for extended periods.

    I got my thyroid tested, it is normal. I am at a fucking loss. What am I doing wrong? I know I drink, but it isnt overwhelmingly caloric. There is no reasonfor this stasis. Calories out > calories in, I do this daily. Its bullshit. I feel like I have to be anorexic to lose weight.
    Animals, have fucking souls. Fight me.

    I don't have any good advice, but offer moral support. And feel similarly... it's difficult to lose weight.

    Try the 17 day diet or Fit for Life. Secret is reducing carbs and life change in eating habits

    My workout app says I've burned about 73,600 calories, which is supposed to be like 21 pounds. I don't think I've lost any weight this year. Maybe I avoided putting on 21 pounds? lol... I guess you could look at it that way for you, too. At least you haven't gained fat? And you must be healthier, with doing cardio for your heart.

    Try 1,200 calories, no sugar, no alcohol, no snacking between meals, and also try 'honesty' about what you're really eating because the scale doesn't lie.

    CI/CO is a load of horse poop, particularly if people are on certain meds and/or are experiencing high levels of stress (chronic elevated levels of cortisol can prevent weight loss and cause weight gain). Imbalanced gut microbiomes can also prevent weight loss/cause weight gain. Fluid retention can also impact and so can diabetes.

    I will say if you follow the diet during the week and have a few drinks on the weekend it is pretty counterproductive.

    Be very careful with only 1200 calories a day as that is on the borderline of unhealthy. When I did that, I lost weight- sure, but I also lost hair, stopped having my period, probably had bone loss (that a dentist noticed in an xray), etc.

    @nonsequitur would be a good person to talk to, but unfortunately she's not around these days.
