Default Somethings wrong :(

for the past like 2 weeks i've been stuck at 147lbs! Cannot get out of it! I would like to think it's a plateau but it can't be because i completely changed my exercise habits.. I went from treadmill/stairmaster to doing zumba and spinning classes! And nothing! I also checked my weight last night and then today and it said i GAINED a bit! i'm getting super scared, i worked so hard to lose the weight and now everything seems to be going wrong!

I've made changes to my eating habit in general, but even after the change I was losing weight.. now, nothing.

Deep breath!

You're at a lot lower weight so there's a lot to be said about weight loss slowing because you're working at a lot lower body mass.

As far as everything going wrong, I think you need to realize in the big picture you're healthier, more active, and changing your life. This is only a stall, not a reversal!

Bravo for you for switching up your exercise. Make sure you are working at the same level of intensity as you did before.

Also, you've made changes to your eating habits. Maybe that warrants a closer examination. I'm not sure what your eating plan is (counting calories, low-carb, etc) but try mixing it up. More calories in the morning or more protein. Also, I know people benefit from journaling their food when they plateau to refocus on what might be thwarting their efforts.

The scale does waaaaacky things whenever I change up my exercise. Be patient and it will settle out! I know easier said than done!
Lost 135 lb in 2011-2012. Regained 40 in 2013-2014. Back in the saddle again...

Stick it out and don't give up! Eventually the science will kick in with a vengeance and the scale will move downward again
