I started walking 3 miles per day around October of 2015, before 2015 I did swimmimg , biking, treadmill, crosstraining and adding weights to my ankles and all sorts of things to shift weight.
I am still walking 3 miles per day. Since I started I have lost very little in weight and I dont eat much already. I am not a cake, chocolate, crisp (Potato chips), fizzy drinks or junk food addict. I was raised on vegetables, meat, fruit, juice, and occasional biscuits (cookies) for a treat and I honestly mean occasional. I dont drink alcohol except on a rare social event in the family which is truly rare and then I'll only drink to tipsy merry no more.
I gave up smoking 6 years ago this year, yet I have battled with my weight all my bloody life and I'm quite sick of making an effort for no true results. Some times my thyroid doesnt work correctly, doctor says my brain is not calling for the thyroid to work like it should. I also have an iron deficiency, I cant hold on to iron as it doesnt absorb, it leaves my body and so i have to take iron in tablet form and I am now 15st,13 and 3/4 in weight (About 206 lbs), I was 16 st 13.
Even though I have been walking since Oct 2015, my legs still burn badly when walking and I'm breathless when there is an incline in the pavement!
What's my issue why cant I shed weight like others I see exercising by walking? Why does it still hurt too?
