I was wondering if anyone had any advice about what I need to do to tweak my weight loss plan. Currently, I have a bodybugg which helped me get over a plateau (lost 10 additional lbs since Jan. 19). I've been trying to increase my weight loss (average 5 lbs a month and would like to avg 6-7). But, after upping my workout, I've stopped losing. Here's my workout plan:
MWF= C25k (60 minutes); Elliptical (30-40 minutes). I increased from 60 total minutes
Tu/Thur = 45-60 minutes (Treadmill--Walking or TurboFire)
Saturday=TurboFire (45 minutes)
Sunday= Rest (If workout on Thursday); Turbofire (If Thurs is my Rest Day).
My bodybugg goal is to burn 3150 calories a day; I've been averaging 3200-3400 on workout days; on my rest day--2600-2700 cals
Eating: My bodybugg average is around 1700-1800 calories a day (some days have been 2000 calorie days; some 1500-1600). Bodybugg says I should aim for 2150 (but, I don't seem lose when I eat that many cals).
Since increasing my workouts (3 days a week for 90 min; 2-3--60min), I went down initially (2 lbs). But, I haven't lost ANYTHING this week. I thought I would have a big initial drop after basically doubling my workouts and increasing my calories.
I'm just really frustrated as I've been recording my food (eating healthy, rarely eating junk) and increasing workouts. I'm losing inches. However, I need to drop lbs as well. I reached a new low (257) and immediately went back up to 259-261. Any ideas? I had a mini-goal to get to 249 before a business trip...that goal is blown to smithereens as I can't possibly lose 8-9 lbs by March 30.
