From January to June I lost quite a few pounds--just shy of 30 in fact. But since then I have stalled and I don't know why. I'm seeing progress in other areas of my life, like cycling, so my overall health improvement hasn't stalled but I'm still 30 lbs overweight and I'd like to keep losing more. Even 2-4 lbs per month would be fine with me, I'm not looking for a quick fix, an overnight sensation, but I would like to lose more.
All of my calorie calculations would suggest that I should still be losing weight at a decent rate but I'm not so I don't know what to do. Obviously there's more to losing that the simple idea "you must take in less than you burn." Some have said I should eat more, others that I should cut this or that out, I just don't know.
For now, I've decided to experiment with cutting out some of the bread products I like to eat--tortillas, multi-grain bread, etc. Not cut them out completely but just cut out some. We'll see what happens.
