My 1st Plateau
OK tell me if I undereat my calories eventually my body will have to let go and start losing again!
I've been at or right around 244 lbs for three weeks now. Last week, as in 8 days ago, I took my daily calories down from 2150 to 2050, no results yet, I guess I'll give it until the end of the week and see if it helps.
According to all the calculators, my maintenance weight calories should be around 2500 now, so you'd think 2050 would be enough of a deficit to at least move the scale one or two pounds by now! Sheesh.
I'm not willing to exercise more than I already do, because I can't keep it up forever. If by the end of the week I am still at 244, I'll knock another 50 calories off.
I have been "zigzagging" a little, perhaps I could do it more to the extreme.
Would like to hear other plateau stories!
I'm wondering if I'll be up against this every 25 lbs I lose...
