Okay, since my hubby has come back home from his school about a month ago I have been STUCK at 179.5-178. I cannot seem to make the scale budge!
Now all that being said, my clothes do fit better as of late, I have noticed slight muscle tone building in my arms, my stomach (while still flabby) seems a bit firmer, and my butt seems smaller (because my pants are a bit looser there too). But I cannot seem to actually LOSE any weight!
Now I read recently here on Sparkpeople that you can either be in "weight loss mode" or "building muscle mode". The article suggested it's best to work on losing first and then building muscle which kind of seems contrary from what I've read before. What does everyone think? Any tips? Suggestions? I've started tracking my meals again because it seems like no matter what I do I'm stuck.
I kind of get the feeling like some days I'm not eating enough and I'm in starvation mode and sometimes I'm eating too much. This weekend I know I ate like crap because I was at Busch Gardens but I also walked a LOT. 16.645 steps. Not bad. My abs, my arms and my shins were bothering me horribly on Sunday.
I just know, I'm stuck!
More cardio? More Strength training? What's the secret!
