Well, after listening to all of you, I was inspired to keep on keeping on! So I went to do my treadmill/dance/resistance bands for 45 minutes! Thank you, thank you, thank you! emoticon

Ditto everything Dragonchilde said.

Sharing your nutrition tracking is something you can do through your SparkPage. Go to your SparkPage, then click "Edit my SparkPage." At the top of the edit page, you'll see a box that lets you determine what information you share. On the right side of the box, there's a list of options called "More Options." Make sure "Share My Food Tracker" and "Share My Fitness Tracker" are checked, and make sure your SparkPage is public, and you should be all set.

Give it a few more weeks. It can take as much as 6-8 weeks for healthy lifestyle changes to show up on the scale, especially when you're adding exercise to the mix. Know that your hard work IS changing. You ARE burning fat, it's just taking time to show up on the scale. You'll get there! Its too soon to start worrying about changing things. Trust the process!

What are your meal breakdowns? How are you sleeping? What is your activity level outside the gym?

Ohhh, that's encouraging! I hope that's what it is. Anyway, how would I share my nutrition tracker?

Hi, thanks for replying to my request about no loss in 3 wks. I am eating eggs, Kashi cereal, whole wheat bread, soups, chicken, tuna, fruits, vegies. Very little beef, if any, 2% milk organic, no sodas. Oranges and kiwis, strawberries. Lunch meat is turkey, little bit of mayo on a sandwich. My calories are running 1500-1600 according to my weight loss goal which is set up for 40 lb. loss from Jan-Nov. Lots of movement - resistance bands, treadmill, toning, calisthenics, stretching, dance. Hope this helps

Let's pretend I just asked you everything May did. emoticon

It would be really helpful if you shared your nutrition tracker, so we can actually see what you're eating and help you trouble-spot.

Also, know that it can take 4-6 weeks for your body to adjust when you start a new nutrition and fitness plan, so it's entirely possible to be doing all of the "right" things and still see no loss at the beginning of your journey.

I am reaching out today to find out what could be causing me to not lose any weight in 3 weeks of doing the calorie tracker, and 514 fitness minutes. Any ideas? Drinking the water, eating the right foods, etc. Should I up the fitness minutes?
