I'm trying not to get discouraged but I can't help it. Last year I lost 25 pounds brining me to 182 and then stalled (I know it's normal to plateau) I just kind of gave up on paying much attention to my eating and continued just working out (1 hour of biking 5 days a week) until September
Well 3 months ago I started again ( weight 194 ) I lost 7-8 pounds within two weeks and since then like 2-3 pounds. Its like my body refuses to go under 182.
I started by eating 1400 cals and bike 1 hour per day (commute) after a month of no loss I stopped biking and continued counting calories, nothing.
So I decided to start meal replacement shakes (breakfast lunch as a shake , 3 snacks (fruit, granola and a healthy dinner.) I stopped biking since this is low calorie. I lost 3 pounds finally.
This weekend I went out for dinner twice (and drank)
I'm back up to 185 (gain of 3-4 pounds) drank like , 4 liters of water (I always always drink a lot of water but I stepped it up)
This morning I was still the same. I'm getting really angry that all that hard work is ruined by 2 stupid meals. I know all about water retention but would I really be the same 2 full day later??? After drinking so much water???
I just want to get out of the 180's and it seems impossible. I know any loss is better then no loss, but I can't believe I'm losing practically nothing!
I won't give up , but I just kinda wanna punch the wall.
