Alright friends , I'm going to ask a very silly question - How can anyone plateau at the beginning itself of their weight loss journey??
I know it does not make any sense but I am really getting concerned now and did not know who else to ask! :(
So the background is this - Just untill last year I was at my goal weight (after losing 18 kgs) which I had achieved after a LOT of effort and maintained it for 2.5 years. But then I had to undergo a surgery in June last year after which I started putting on weight. Now I am 8 kilos heavier! So about 2 months back I got really concerned about this sudden gain and started making some serious efforts for weight loss. I have been exercising regularly most of the time. Haven't had any binging episodes since 6 weeks now ... trying to control my carb n fat intake but still I havn't lost a single pound! It just refuses to budge!!!
I kept trying to keep myself motivated... But I'm losing it now. Mainly because I just cant figure out what is missing in my efforts! So I was wondering if may be I should do some sort of Diet like a GM diet or something for a few days just to move the scale! That might help break the plateau. Well, I'm never in favor of so called "weight loss diets" but this is just a desperate effort now. I feel horrible to see that I'm back sliding so fast... Its scary!
