Plateaued :(

Sunday, February 17, 2013

02/17/13-Been stuck in the same place for almost 2 weeks now. I have been working out 7 days a week, and a vigorous workout each day. I have added strength training also. I track my calories almost everyday except maybe a weekend day, but I am still making sure I am staying within my limits. I am just confused. Am I doing too much or not eating enough? Just need to get to losing pounds again so I don't lose my strength to keep going.

    Plateaus happen, don't get too discouraged. Could be sodium intake, your body has gotten used to your program, or you BMR has changed due to your progress. Tweak your program and try to find out what variables you can change to attain your goals! emoticon

    I hit plateaus all the time. Massive amounts of ice water and nuts for snacking work for me. Keep focused for success. You can do it. Go for it.

    Don't get excited. Yet.

    A plateau doesn't happen in just two weeks. What has your last four weeks looked like? If you have lost an average of 0.5 to 2 pounds over the last four weeks, you are doing ok. If your four week average is less than 0.5 pounds per week, you a plateaued. Slowing down, stopping, or giving back for a week or two happens.

    Hang in there. Give it a chance.

    Try mixing up your ratios a bit. Keep your calories the same but perhaps up your protein a tad more?? Sometimes small change will confuse your body. But don't beat yourself up! Good Luck!
