relook at what you eating, Is your exercise consistent, this is very important for woman, my trainer explained to me while he was talking to another one of my peers. She complained of the same thing. I'm rooting for you.

Live life and have fun!

I think the eating can cause this too, though it is true that the scale is sometimes deceitful. Start drinking a lot of water and eat plenty of fruits and veggies if you can. PLEASE DON'T GIVE UP! You are doing so good and you should be very proud of yourself. If nothing else, remember that you are getting healthier on the inside and with each step you are conditioning your heart and lungs which will ultimately increase your chances of a longer and healthier life! emoticon

I went through the exact same thing. I kept my calorie intake to 1200-1500 and I was walking a mile a day. When I had my first weigh-in 4 weeks later, nothing, I had not lost a single pound. My health & wellness nurse @ work advised me to add more protein to my diet and drink more water. I started having an Atkins protein shake with my breakfast each morning. I did not cut anything else out of my diet, I made sure to get 3 healthy meals & 3 healthy snacks a day, and just added the shake to my morning breakfast...and for my 2nd weigh in (2 weeks later) I lost 9 lbs. There have been a few weeks when I have lost 4-5 lbs...but I average 2-3 lbs a week. It can be discouraging when you do not see a difference at first, but stick with it and you will see results. Make sure that you are drinking plenty of water - it really does help!! Good Luck!!

I can really empathise with you, this happened to me after I had my third child. I really wanted to get back to my old weight, I went all out with exercise and diet. It took a few months for my body to get going in the right direction, after a month of no loss, a week later I had lost 10lbs. I then settled down to 2lb loss a week. I managed to lose three stone. And kept up the exercise for years by swimming 3 times a week. This enabled me to eat a bit more and be guilt free if I overdid the 'party' eating. Good luck in your endevour, keep at it and you will win.

Jenduke I know your frustration but please don't give up on yourself. It takes time for your body to catch up to your efforts sometimes. You are getting healthier with every healthy choice you make. I would suggest being very honest with yourself and track everything you eat and drink to see exactly what your calorie intake is. Everyone is different and everyone has a sweet spot with their calorie intake that will bring them to lose weight. Make adjustments as you see you need to and make sure you are drinking all your water everyday. Drinking water helps you stay hydrated and flush your system daily. Just keep pushing forward and I can assure you will start to see the results. Even if you haven't lost any weight so far I can tell you that your heart and lungs are definitely stronger and healthier than they were 2 months ago when you started on this journey.

Oh hun, don't even begin to compare yourself to your DH. Men's metabolisms are so much more different than womens. I am new to SP, so for now, I can't even comment on why you aren't seeing any changes...other than I do know that if you are taking in more calories than expending during your workouts, that could be your culprit. Don't give up though! Keep on keeping on. You can do this!!! emoticon

The first verse I ever learned was~
Matthew 7:7 Ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you

Luke 17:6 And the Lord said, if ye had faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye might say unto this sycamine tree, Be thou plucked up by the root, and be thou planted in the sea; and it should obey you.

On my fourth week of this challenge. Have been working out for two months. Slowly working on eating habits, but have definitely curbed my calories by several hundred a day. Why am I not losing any weight? My clothes do not fit any better, the scale hasn't moved (down a pound up a pound - no real change) And my measurements haven't changed. My husband started working out with me last week. He's down 4 pounds.
