Hi Sithembisos

I hope so. You've certainly made positive changes to your lifestyle and they should work to help correct the change. However, the key principle here is that something changed between now and 9 months ago, to cause that initial weight gain. That's what needs to be addressed now, and you've identified the change - you changed jobs and stopped exercising. To simplify, what you need is to get back to the same routine as before, and the body weight will correct itself. So that's where you're headed, and what you're doing seems to be the right thing.

Just remember that it will take time - 9 months is a long time and having stopped, you'll have to work your way back steadily. But it's doable and you're on the way, so just keep at it, and make sure you don't err on the diet - if anything, you probably need to see a dietician and sort that side out, because it can be the deciding factor.

Good luck

Your current BMI is 23, which is a normal range.

Your weightloss will be very slow because your BMI is normal, meaning you are not overweight.

I think you are doing everything right, just give it sometime.

Gud luck
