So, I've been on plan for 5 weeks, as of yesterday! I've been pretty good about staying within my calorie range, with mainly healthy calories, I have been getting a minimum of 60 minutes of cardio, 6 days a week and ST for 35 minutes 4 times a week...and I've been drinking a gallon of water a day, YES I said a gallon! lol
So, anyways...the last week of January I had to go away for the entire week, for business conference. This had me literally in meetings from 7:00 am - 11:00 pm everyday, except Friday, when I was lucky enough to get out at 4, so I could go HOME!! Anyways...with that crazy schedule, I barely ate...and when I did I had no control over it because it was whatever was catered...and I literally had very minimum or no water at all because I couldn't leave the room every 10 minutes to go potty! haha...Okay, so the point, right...the point is, before the trip I was averaging 3.8 pounds a week loss...after the trip, I haven't lost a thing, and I'm actually back up 2 pounds!!!! What the HECK!
Okay, so now you all have a good idea of my eating and workout schedule...any ideas as to why I'm gaining and NOT losing???????
Last night I found an article, and it said that in order to lose weight consistantly, you should be eating 25% less than your BMR...well, here's my question...does that mean my regular BMR of 1976, or my "moderate activity" BMR of 3039, cause umm, hello...in case you didn't notice...there's a HUGE difference there! lol Not to mention my spark calorie range is NOWHERE near either of these numbers...so who's right, whats wrong...why won't my body lose any weight?!? And, does this process even really work...who knows?!
I'm really getting past frustrated and now really worried, because I have goals, that are set for a reason...and the first is a location wedding on May 29th, and soon I'm gonna have to rsvp...and I am seriously not going unless I am down another 45 pounds! This is not cool, and I need help!
Any and all help is totally appreciated...Thanks to all!!!
