Default Exercise stall?

I'm so confused I've been dealing with frustration because I stalled for weeks. (1350 cals a day and light-mod exercise, 2L of water a day) then for a week same cals same water no exercise and lbs dropped. Then I started exercising again and stall!!!! What is going on with that??
main goal

I began my weight loss mission on 10/18/12. I started at 219 (222 at my biggest) and I'm working towards 155.

Hope this helps a little!

You might want to think about upping your calories a little too. Try it for a week or two and see what happens

10lb Weight Loss (287) √ | 20lb Weight Loss (277) √| 35lb Weight Loss (262) √ | Class I Obesity BMI (250) √ |
50lb Weight Loss (247) √ |
60lbs HALFWAY THERE | 65lb Weight Loss (232) | Overweight BMI (223)
| 85lb Weight Loss (217)
|ONEderland (199) | 100 Pounds Lost (197) | NORMAL BMI (185)
| 120lb Weight Loss (177)

One for every 5 lbs lost

F You Fatness

My experience with weight loss and exercise has been that sometimes it takes my body some time to adjust when I change my routine. I'm not exactly sure about the science behind it but I think that when you're building muscle your body holds on to more water? Just keep it up and your body will normalize after a bit. Either way, you should see a difference with inches lost even if the pounds aren't flying off.

You mention «light-mod exercise» I would increase the intensity of your workouts... More incline, intervals, speed work, heavier weights, etc...

Falling down is not failure....Failure is staying down.
