I agree, sounds like you are doing the starvation mode routine. Your body isn't getting enough fuel, so it is going to hang onto everything. Muscle weighs more than fat, so if you are building muscle, you will weigh more. The scale isn't the only way to measure your success. How is your blood pressure, cholesterol and bloodwork doing? Have you read any of the articles available on this site? There is a wealth of information available to you. The experts can point you to the pertinent articles, if you ask them.

You need to be netting 1200-1500 calories after exercise. You'd probably do much better with upping your calorie intake to about 1800 or so. It sounds crazy, but it helps. You can eat foods that are good for you but have a higher calorie amount like nuts and avocados. Good luck. emoticon

I agree. If you are burning that much and eating that little you aren't getting enough calories. You really shouldn't go below 1200 calories AFTER you subtract what you burn from exercising. It can get quite difficult to keep up with it all... My problem is I never seem to trust what my monitor says my burn is... emoticon

Trying to get back on track after the worst year that I can remember.

You probably aren't eating enough. And you may need 1-2 rest days in between exercise. Maybe try changing your weight loss goals, and see if you lose weight then after a month or so. If you don't, get checked out by a doctor.

I've been eating well, exercising 7 days a week and I'm still not losing. I've been going at this for nearly 3 weeks now, and nothing. I know I'm getting in better shape, as I can now run 3.8 miles in 35 minutes and before I could barely go 3 miles in that amount of time. I'm strength training 6 days per week and am only eating 1200-1500 calories a day. And it's not junk food. It's all fruits/veggies, lean protein and whole grains. No soda, candy, etc. I'm burning 600-700 calories per day as verified by my heart rate monitor. What gives? 2 years ago I did the exact same thing and lost 12 pounds in 2 weeks. Now I've actually gained almost 2 pounds just this week alone. Someone tell me what's going on. I'm not giving up my any means, just would be nice to see all my hard work pay off on the dang scale. I've lost about an inch off my hips, and that's all I really have to show for my efforts.
