Stuck in a rut! Last 20lbs
Brief history: ... Starting weight was 226. I lost 85lbs in about eight and a half months. Then I took a year break of just maintaining. And in the end only gained about 5lbs, but lost a lot of muscle mass, and appear very flabby again. Now I have been more determined then ever to lose my last 20lbs or so, and it WONT COME OFF!! I just completed the Jillian Michaels 30day shred challenge. and haven't lost a single pound! my arms gained a little muscle, but thats about all i noticed. And i worked my butt off doing the exercises. But have yet to see it reflect on the scale. I have been counting my calories. I consume about 1200 per day. and that consist of protein shakes, turkey sandwiches, carrots, and lots of fruit. I just don't seem to understand why I haven't been able to loose the last 20lbs! I thought I had everything figured out before when I was loosing weight, but ever since I took some time off, I feel completely lost and back to square one. I never thought I would be one of this girls who complains about only 20lbs to lose. I should be celebrating.. but thats the funny thing about self esteem I guess.. :/
Does anyone have any suggestions as to why I cant seem to bust through my rut and drop my last 20lbs?? And.. anyone have any other good at home work out videos that they recommend? I did really enjoy the 30 day shred challenge, but I just didn't get the results I was hoping for. And now that the 30days are over, I should probably switch things up... Any other good workout DVDS out there??
