Why am I not losing weight?

Monday, March 12, 2012

I know everyone goes through this, but damnit (sorry for the language) I am so frustrated.

I workout 3-4 days a week minimum for an hour and a half at least. That's right I spend a lot of time at the gym. I do 30 minutes on the elliptical making sure to burn at least 350 calories. I then do a half hour of ab work, half hour of arms and legs. Yet, I still weight 157!

I eat less than I did before I began this journey, with a couple days of complete utter failure. But for the most part, no junk food on the weekdays and ice cream once (sometimes twice) on the weekends. I will have two beers and maybe a glass of wine on the weekend. That's it.

I eat a lot of fruit, veggies, and lean meat. So if anyone has any words of advice or can help me out, I would so appreciate it. I don't consume a lot of white sugar, at the most 3 teaspoons a day that I put into one cup of coffee, and then two cups of tea. Depending on how cold it is, I drink more tea and coffee. I don't eat a lot of white flour, unless my loaf of bread runs out and I then use my hubby's white bread.

    I'm wondering if you are eating enough to fuel your workout. If you don't eat enough your body will go into starvation mode and hold onto that fat.

    You're probably right, I always forget to track my food which I know is part of the problem. I think that maybe I am embarrassed to share my food tracker, but that is a good idea. Thank you.

    You're not sharing your nutrition tracker so I have no idea what to tell you, specifically. Broadly, you're eating more than you think, burning less than you think. Without tracking, I suffer from what I call "food amnesia". I tried to wing it late last year without tracking and went nowhere. Started tracking again and the weight started coming off. Go figure.
