Yeah, like Lavender said make sure you log everything and make sure you watch your sodium intake.

emoticon If you are accurately logging your food intake, you probably just need to give your body time to adjust. However, it is easy to under estimate calorie intake if you don't include things like ketchup, salad dressings, margarine etc. Measuring portion size can also be helpful. An extra ounce or two can up the count considerably. Keep up your efforts and don't cut back too far. You don't want to go into "starvation mode" which slows your metabolism down.

Hi! I'm new to this team, but not new to high blood pressure and battling with the weight & exercise. I'm sure all your exercise and proper eating are helping with the blood pressure issue. At my age, (70) I look at all the trying to be fit and healthy as only being a bonus to my quality of life, even if I don't lose as quickly as I used to. Hope this helps. I need all the help I can get from you all, to stay away from junk food. Thanks.

In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose
"If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired."
-General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

Perhaps you need to eat at the top end of your range on the days you exercise to give your body more. Try that for a week and see if that turns things around.

Hi

You are doing fine. Check your measurements. Muscle weighs more than fat but your probably lost inches. How do your clothes fit? A little looser?

Don't feel bad. I've gained 2 pounds in the last month, but my pants are looser. I bought a smaller size last week.

You can do this. Don't get discouraged. Although it is easy to do. A healthier you is what is important, not the number on the scale.

Stuck rigidly to low end of calories allowance all week.
Exercised with the 28 boot camp too.
Loss 0
Do I just stop eating or give up on weight loss?

Just a wee bit unhappy
