I continue to stay at my weight and not able to lose. I feel like I am doing all I can do to no success. I am working out at least 5 days a week doing 40 -50 of cardio and 30 - 40 of strengthening. My diet is so much healthier and my calorie intake continues to stay between 700 to 1000 everyday. I measure all my food and count how much water I drink. I do not drink pop or any sugary products. I see my dietitian next week so maybe she can shed some insight on all this as she accesses my sparks page to see my fitness activities and food intake. I am going to continue if anything I am becoming more fit.

    I did the calorie recommendation and my calories are too low. My nutritionist increased my calorie intake and next month she is going to set me up with a exercise trainer. Thanks all for your comments and support. I truly appreciate it. emoticon

    Bonnie remember on your workout days you NEED to increase your calories. Also, have you completed the calorie recommendations for your height and current weight? They are helpful. Not trying to tell you what to do, because I suffer the same frustrations, BUT come to find out even though I gained 2 pd initially, I had actually gained 14 pds of muscle and went from 45% body fat to 41% there are alot of variables. Keep Pushing!

    Keep up the hard work you will eventually break the plateau and maybe increasing your calories a bit will hep go to 1200 and see cuz your body might be in starvation mode and keeping all your calories as fat cuz there so low. Just a thought!!

  I can see why that's maddening. I don't get it either. But it might be too much.

I hope your nutrition person can help.

Sometimes when we are totally strict, our body goes in shock and thinks we are trying to starve it, or it's building muscle.

I'd be curious to hear what she says.

Also one of the coaches here will usually be willing to answer that sort of thing, even without a coach session. Just go to their website or one of those groups they are overseeing.

Don't give up, get insight. emoticon
