HI All

I started on IP back in June of 2011 at 147lbs and needed to loose almost 32lbs. I managed to loose 20 lbs and have 12 more to go. My weight loss is now getting slower. I have noticed if I add a restricted my weight loss stalls. I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how to expedite these last few lbs and if anyone struggled getting through the hurdle and what they did.
I had to recently switch Clinics because I moved from Boston to NYC and the new coash is no help

I am with you!

I have lost 8 of my 13, but it feels like it has been slow.

I find the opposite. Adding a restricted has helped, I think...I only started this last week...

Also, I do work out a lot and I am trying to be better at eating the extra packet. I don't always feel like it...

Does work out help to move the scale faster or do you think that might be why its slow for you. I was thinking maybe I should add a workout or two to the equation when I consume restricted. Hope it doesnt make me hungrier

I think it's to be expected as you don't have much weight to lose.

The main benefit of working out is being toned. When I lost the majority of my weight it was amazing to see the muscle definition under the fat!

We have almost the same stats and goals. I lost 27 lb from June until October. My weight loss slowed down and I haven't been able to lose any weight until now. I started calorie cycling and changing up my workout routine. I find that decreasing my carb intake really helped a lot.

Hi Ryler832. Thanks for posting
Yeah we are exactly the same in dimensions :D
Ok so you cut back on restricted as well? Also when you workout what do you normally do? If you dont mind sharing what you mean by calorie cycling?

I am almost the same dimensions... I'm a little bit taller and I am having the same issue. I am completely stalled....

When you say stalled, how long do you mean? There was about 10 days this month where I saw no change on the scale. Then it started moving down again.

The last pounds will take longer as your body is used to ketosis.

Not that I like it, but I am resigned to let things unfold slower this time.

I continue to work out pretty much daily. I now insider it neutral. It is neither helping or hindering my losses.
