Default just annoyed - the usual venting thread

im stuck hovering around 190lbs and i dont know what to do anymore... Feel like pigging out and hibernating for winter.. jk But i am really at my wits end... this is the weight i was stuck at last time i did an overhaul on my lifestyle - when it happened then, it took me 2 years to put the weight back on, but boy did i. My body wont go any lower that 190lbs and i dont know why. I eat low calories, i weight train and i've added cardio in. I've changed my exercises up, changed food, added a fiber supplement...

why cant i loose my last 35lbs? T____T

I was stuck around 190 as well for a few weeks. Then I did 30 Day Shred and lost 9 pounds in that time. I do credit the DVD for kickstarting my loss again.

I have to ask if you are counting calories and if so, how many are you eating a day..are you being sure to count every bite, lick, taste, drink, etc? Also, for me, when I am stuck or sliding up and down between numbers on the scale, I try to zig zag my calories for a bit and change up my exercise routine. Don't give up and be sure to keep us updated

Pereverance pays off. When I get stuck , I up my exercise ,lower my calories a little but most of all I do not give up. You can do it, too.

im a guesstimator its just how i do it (i lost my first 35 this way) but i know, its well under 2000 (maintain calories - via a calculator i found). and over 1300 (starvation for my height, weight, age, and workout schedule).

i eat mostly oatmeal in the mornings, with cinnamon. salad wraps and steamed vegetables.. the occasional steak, or pork or chicken grilled. - i dont like fish.

perhaps i need to REALLY start monitoring my calories... and recording it, so i really know how much... here we go, i have something to do this week: see how many calories i'm really eating, not what i think im eating...

(i just hate the idea though, because it seems really restrictive to me, weighing/measuring food... to me this is like crazy dieter... lol i dont want to be measuring food for the rest of my life).

in response to other posts... i tried slim in 6.. i think i got fatter lol. and i've been at this 190 for months now... very frustrating, as you can imagine.

Thanks for the replies.

Well "guesstimating" MAY have been enough - for a while. Now it seems that it's not. Soooo, it's time to kick it up a notch and TRACK those calories - faithfully. What about it seems so restrictive? I think rermaining at 190 lbs is pretty restrictive. How long do you want to go on like that for?
Why not think of it as freeing? It can certainly free you up to get to goal.

I don't think tracking the foods that I eat, being mindful and responsible, as being a crazy dieter. I actually think what I was doing prior to that was pretty crazy. Leaving something so vital to my health & my well being up in the air.

By the way, I don't measure everything. I pretty much know what serving sizes look like now. Give yourself a few weeks of doing this and you will be more clued in as well.

I think you will be quite pleased with the results and realize that it isn't so bad. Just the opposite in fact. You'll see.

It may seem crazy to some but for others, myself included, it is a necessary tool for being successful with losing weight. I use to estimate as well but I found out that a lot of times I was either under estimating the amount or over estimating so now, for me, it is a must that I weigh and measure and count every calorie I consume and for me, it is paying off because I continue to see the numbers on the scale drop. I don't think it would hurt to at least give it 100% effort for a few weeks and see how it works out for you

Well, in my opinion, 500 calories is not unreasonable for lunch especially if you are not having a midmorning snack between breakfast and lunch. As for myself, I graze all day long on low calorie, healthy foods that I can have in large volumes because, for me, it works

I have been at goal for 22 months , I got to goal by counting calories and I stay at goal by counting calories. Call me a crazy dieter but I prefer what I am doing to gaining it back and to start wearing that xlarge clothing again.

Sounds like you may have found the source of your problem!

I also find that when I try to lose weight without rigorous tracking that I can only maintain at best, and possibly gain. It's really just too easy to underestimate how much you are eating calorie-wise.
