Default seriously...

I'm stalled and need help. I started SBD on Jan 14th, ended phase 1 on Jan 28th. Really have not cheated, I've had a few goodies but nothing major at all. I workout 4-6 times a week for anywhere from 30-90 min. I eat a lot of veggies, lean meat, eggs, lf cheese, usually 1 serving of fruit, 1 slice of double fiber ww bread, etc. I do not get enough water in, this I know.

I started at 137.5 am currently at 129, the lowest I've seen on the beach was 127.5 and that was after being sick for 3 days. My clothes fit better and I look better but seriously when is the actual scale going ot budge? I've been in phase 2 for about 3 weeks and have maybe lost 1-1.5 lbs.

I have entered my calories into fitday or other boards and it seems that I'm still not getting enough calories. I hover right around 900, 1000 if I'm really trying. I get a pretty even split of fat, carbs and protein.

I just feel like I'm doing it all right but should actually be losing not just maintaining. If I really packed on 300 more calories a day would the weight fall off? or if I can force myself to chug more water would it really help?

Is it because I don't have that much to lose so it goes slower? please please save me from myself!!!!

Maybe it's because you're already at your goal weight? What's your BMI? Your body just might be resisting any more change. Just a thought...

it's 24.26 so it's "healthy" but it's just a hair from overweight...

How tall are you? I am also thinking that you may not have more to lose and that your body is taking over and stalling anymore weight loss.

Also, if you are only getting 900-1000 calories a day your body may be kicking itself into starvation mode and hanging on to every single calorie.

Just a thought......

well if you measure me up against the wall, I'm 5'1". But i have bad scoliosis and actually have enough spine to be 5'4" it's just all twisted up in me. I usually go with the 5'1" b/c that's actually how tall I stand.

I def don't want my body to think it's starving. I'm a little afraid to just tack on 300 calories and start gaining again. But maybe I can add another fruit and starch and see what happens...

you need to eat at least 1200 calories. You will then see the weight loss.

If you have enough spine to be 5' 4" then that probably is the height you should be going with. I would suggest you talk to your doctor about your ideal weight range. I'm 5' 3" and my doctor suggests a range of 125-135 for me.

I think it may be likely that you are not getting enough calories and your body is just holding onto everything.
