The scale has pretty much stayed the same for almost 2 weeks and I'm getting super frustrated and of course, discouraged. Can anyone explain why all of the sudden this halt in weight loss? Any suggestions?
I'm a calorie counter. For the first 5 weeks I did great, I ate 1200 calories a day, did Pilates 3-5 times per week, and walked a lot, usually 5 days per week. I lost 12.8# in that time. Pretty consistently, I lost about 2-3 pounds per week.
Then Halloween came, and I stayed on plan really. I DIDN'T go crazy and eat tons of candy or binge. I went to a Halloween party and drank a little, nothing major (but still more than I had "allowed" myself calorie wise). Ever since it seems like the scale is stuck between 162-163. I decided last week to up my calories from 1200 to 1400-1500. I thought my body maybe thought I was starving it?! I pretty much stick with 1400 daily. I work out for an hour 5 times per week consisting of Pilates, walking, and the elliptical machine.
So...why is the scale STILL not moving?
Someone tell me what I'm doing wrong? Please!
Thanks in advance!
