View Full Version : What's the deal??

I'm starting to get very frustrated. I stay near or under my caloric allowance (for zero exercise) and I work out religiously 5-6 days a week with Jillian since mid February. I track everything I eat on MFP. I try switching things up; eating little more, eating less. Ugh.

3 pounds?? Seriously?

I was making great progress (inch loss) in March and now I am stuck at a plateau. :?:

I am seriously losing my patience. Am I going to have to go at it hard this week or what? I NEED to break this stand off with my scale, the b*****d isn't moving! Now what?

You are pretty close to your goal weight so the loss will be SLLOW. I have not lost a single pound in over 3 weeks. It is frustrating but you need to keep moving on towards your goal.

Maybe try switching it up and changing your diet? I have always done great on Lower Carb diets. Check around the forums, they all are great :)

I took off 2 days from exercise, still maintaining my calories but now I am going to work out hard today to hopefully kick start things back into action. :carrot:

Wish me luck!

how many calories are you eating?

05-09-2012, 02:52 PM
I vary from 1,200-1,450 approx a day. I am allowed 1,510.

I know it sounds wacky, but try to stay as close to your allowed calories as possible. If you are working out all the time, your body needs fuel. If you aren't already doing it, spread your calories out within 6 meals so basically you are eating every 3 hours or so. It helps with hunger for one thing. Don't forget, if you are exercising hard almost everyday, you are building muscle which weighs lbs too. Forget about the scale for awhile and use the tape measure. If you are losing inches, you are losing weight and the scale not moving is more than likely from building up your muscles. Good luck to you.

how many carbs do you eat daily ? Nothing switches up the body like lowering your carbs A LOT .....always works for me.

Good Luck
