I have been on Spark People since October 7th, and I have lost very little weight for so long a time. I've lost 8 pounds, and when I went to the doctor, the scale said I had lost 11 more pounds! I was elated and even posted it, but when I got back on my scale at home and it registered the same 8 pounds It's been the same for weeks and weeks and weeks now! I've weighed on the first floor, the second floor, in the basement, bought a new battery, still the same. I always weigh on the same time of day, with the same clothes. I've heard it all, I'm older, I'm building muscle, look for Non Scale Victories, blah, blah, blah! But could the Scale please move a little more, already? Even 1/2 pound a week would be nice!
Every day, I've stayed within my calorie range, drank 64 oz. of water, reduced salt, exercised like a madwoman, and slept 8 hours every night, still the scale won't move!
Yes, my clothes are looser, and my stamina and energy have increased, but could the scale please move? I'm still over 200 pounds and that's not right.
It is 5pm and I'm at 700 calories for the day! HELP! before I jump up, put 20,000 more steps on my tracker and do two hours of high impact aerobics with no more food! What else can I do?
The only "diet" that works is consistency!
