6 Reasons You're Not Losing Weight



Exercising but Not Losing Weight

Nov 3, 2011
I'm 40 years old and would like to lose a few pounds. I've been exercising regularly and have lost inches but not any weight. I follow a healthy diet. Why am I not losing? Please help me; I am about to give up!

Don't give up--especially when you're doing so well! Many women have long been conditioned to equate the numbers on the scale with exercise and diet success, and they become discouraged when the numbers don't budge, despite the fact that their clothes are fitting better and their hips, waist, and thighs are shrinking.

Here's what's going on: Sometime in your 30s, you start losing lean muscle tissue to the tune of half a pound (premenopause) to a pound (postmenopause) a year. Muscle is what fuels your body's metabolism, so as you lose muscle, you burn fewer calories and begin to gain fat. Now that you're strength-training, you are beginning to replace that precious metabolism-revving muscle tissue. That, combined with your aerobic exercise and smart eating habits, will help you lose unhealthy fat. The important thing to remember is that muscle tissue is denser and heavier than fat tissue, which means it takes up less space (so you lose inches), but it weighs quite a bit more (so you don't lose as many pounds as you would expect).


If you need more evidence of your weight loss progress, consider getting your body composition tested at a health club. This will show you how much lean tissue you are replacing as well as how much fat you are losing. Otherwise, keep up the good work!
