Grrr. I honestly do not know what else to do. I am desperate.

Your situation is extraordinary. Would you give us some examples? For instance what did you eat and approximately how much during the last three meals?
I can only speak for myself but I think I have been lured into thinking that simply a little exercise the days I could not fit in my 60 min intense walk would do it.
Seems that lots of the reports, etc. on exercise etc relate to minimum levels of health versus weight loss. Burning calories is HARD--no matter how you do it. We have to burn 3500 calories to lose a pound. That's not the same as walking a bit to get our blood flowing, etc. I wish it were easier but I suspect this is why it's so discouraging for many of us--and pretty bloody complicated.
But, I'm only interpreting what I think I'm hearing.

I have NO clothes to wear because everything in my closet is a size 10 or 12, except a few fattyblob tent outfits I have bought or been given the past few months.
