Try a different type of work out, your body can get used to the cardio kick boxing, variety is key. (This is my problem right now.) If that doesn't seem to do the trick, it's possibly something in your diet that's not as healthy as you may think. Try to eat things with only 1 ingredient (or at least ingredients you can pronounce and understand), like vegetables, fruit, lean meats, rice. And stay away from anything processed like hot dogs, cereal, margarine, sugar. And especially ANY sugar substitutes!

In February I went to the doctor with abdominal pain. I stepped on the scale, and BOOM, I had gained 16 lbs. None of my clothes felt tight (except for one pair of jeans that has always felt tight after washing), and I didn't SEE any additional fat anywhere. In May I began the Sparkpeople regiment. Eating between 1200-1500 calories a day and making sure I exercise a minimum of 30 minutes a day (I've been doing cardio kickboxing, which is approx. 400 calories per hour).

Long story short, I had decided not to weigh myself until mid-July...and I just weighed myself last week and I haven't' lost a pound. I feel better, my resting heart rate is down, and I'm drinking over 8 glasses of water a day.

Any thoughts or ideas???
