Ladies, what has been your personal experience with BC and weight loss?
I'm starting to consider the possibility that my BC is the main culprit for this insane plateau I'm experiencing. It has been 3 months since I've had a loss. My BC was late getting to me from the mail order pharmacy so I was off of it the week of TOM and the week after. In those 2 weeks, I shed 3 pounds of visibly noticeable weight. I started the BC back a week and a half ago and I'm now back up those 3 pounds and not budging. Again. My plan IS actually slow weight loss but 3 months with no loss is a little too slow for my taste. I've decided to stop the BC next month and see if I'm right. My poor b-friend.
Some back story:
I count calories religiously (1500-1600) and eat nutritionally balanced meals. I do not have cheat days (know for a fact since I can't consume processed foods because almost all contain gluten, which I'm intolerant to.) I work out 6 days a week... 1 1/2 mile brisk walk at lunch every day, 45 minutes of cardio every other day, and circuit/weight training on the days I don't do cardio.
