Sometimes I eat towards the higher end of my calorie range and mix up my exercise routine to break through to the next lower number on the scale. Stick with it - YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Hey, Jody. I really do understand your frustration. I also think you should keep doing what you are doing and maybe try an experiment or two with the combination of foods, reduced sodium or things like that. You could re-post this message on the diet Board where the experts and others could get more specific with what you eat. If you let one of the coaches see your food tracker they may be able to help you experiment. THAT SAID, truly, half a pound a week is way better than you realize. You have probably firmed up and are smaller all over - muscle does weigh more than fat! So I would also suggest you use measurements and clothing fit over the scale. If you just keep on doing what you are doing you will be LIVING HEALTHY and that is the true goal of Spark People. Your body is losing the fat! Please keep on with the effort. Never quit!

I am so frustrated, I have been doing this for a month, eating healthy and withingn my calorie range, walking 4 miles 3 times a week and doing yoga or circuit training on 2 other days. What is my weight loss you ask??? 2 lbs. and thats if I stand just right on the scale. Does anyone have any ideas I could try? i know this is a long slow process but I thought I would have seen more of a change by now. :(
