Thank you for your input Roxielu. Food for thought.. I have logged my exercise and adjusted my setting accordingly, so it should be accounted for when calculating my range. I am eating some processed foods, but I also prepare some (most?) from scratch and I do eat whole foods. (Feel free to browse my trackers if you are interested.)

I have a tendency for low blood-pressure, so I have actually been encouraged to increase sodium intake. My intake is still moderate-low, so pretty sure we can leave sodium out of the equation.

depending on what you are doing for exercise, you might not be eating enough. That could be a big problem. Sodium intake is a huge factor as well. Are you eating processed foods? Whole foods offer more benefit.

It is what it is....

Anne; I have never done anything too drastic with my macros, I keep my fats healthy and my carbohydrates mainly fibrous. I don't think low-fat or low-carb eating is for me. You are probably right about exercise, I suspect changing up my routine a bit could help..

If you don't have a food scale I recommend getting one. It takes the guesswork out of play. Everything I eat gets weighed and tracked. If you consistently have a calorie deficit you will see the scale go down.

That stinks! I probably have no advice that you haven't already thought of yourself... Are you measuring your portions? It's easy to get more than you think you're getting. For me that's particularly true on pasta, grains, and cereal. I always overestimate the portion! You might also try playing with your macronutrients. Perhaps limiting your carbs might help you or keeping your carbs at the low end of the spectrum might help? You could also try changing up the exercise portion. Personally, I find my weight-loss attempts more successful when I focus more on strength training. I'm still doing cardio too, but I prioritize st.

I have been looking at my trackers and they tell me I have consistently reached or slightly surpassed my fitness targets while my calories and nutrients have been within range (and consistently dropping) over the past months.

Shouldn't I have lost some weight by now? I have noticed differences in my body, but the scale is not budging. Any comments or advise is welcome! (I have written more about this situation in my blog.)
