I rode my Peloton like a woman possessed last year for 6 months and didn’t see a lot of weight loss, but did feel great and got more toned generally. It wasn’t until I focused on diet that I saw significant weight loss. It’s especially difficult on HRT, at least it was for me, as my metabolism slowed way down. Note the distinction between being on a diet and just having a healthy diet. The latter is the more sustainable in the long run, but hard to achieve.
Noom was my choice, and it worked well, for me. Monitoring portions and what I ate every day was a chore, but it helped me eventually make better choices and be more mindful about what I was eating, and now it’s second nature. It doesn’t take very much to consume a lot of calories, and it’s nearly impossible to burn it all off on exercise alone. I lost 40 lbs in total and have sustained that for a year now as I settled into the right calorie intake and exercise mix for sustainment. Noom is expensive, and not necessary, any tracker for diet journaling can do (myfitnesspal is one I use now).
The other thing I do is weigh myself every morning. I used to think that was a terrible idea, but what actually happens is you learn to recognize what is just normal fluctuation versus a developing trend in the wrong direction and adjust accordingly before its too far gone and demotivating.
Also, I’m sad to report, belly is the last thing to go, and I swear breasts are the first.
