I just hit that dreaded 6 month stall in months 5 to 6!! Grrrrrr.

I can only offer my humble advice, which is working for me, which is to "mix it up"! I reviewed my Tracker for every bite/ounce of food I consumed for one week. I reviewed my Tracker for every minute of exercise for one week. Then I "mixed it up"! I dropped my net carbs to below 50g per day. Proteins up between 60-100g per day. Good fats only from avocados, fish, nuts, and olive oil.

I increased my calories (my calories were below 800 per day) or you may want to decrease your calories (if your calories are up over 1200). I "mixed up" myexercise -- I added 30 minutes of walking for a total of 60 minutes per day, I added 15 minutes a day of strength training, I changed the time of day that I exercised - spreading it out over the course of the day. "Mix it up" and the scale will move! At least is did for me - Week one, with calories up to 900-1000 per day, I lost One pound. Week 2, with calories back down to 800-900 per day, I lost Four more pounds!

I encourage you to "Mix It Up"!
God Bless You!

Tahks for the encouragment, i made an appointment to see the nutrionist to see if ther is something I can b edoing differently. I have had no regular access to the internet due to our hard drive crashing last week. So we are going to the local library.I haven't been tracking since this happened other than keeping track mentally. Of course we all know that there are actually more calories in things than we think.I will try to implement some of your suggestions. Thursday of this week a i strained/ sprained the muscles in my lower back and side and can't exercise vigorously, but I plan on walking.I wish I could find somebody close to home to be accountable to. My husband is very suppportive, but he is 6 feet and weighs 172# and has never struggled with weight
issues. i am rambling and am gald you all are here.

Heidi -
Welcome and congrats on a roaring weight loss!

My suggestions would be to change things up some. If you always exercise in the mornings, try the evenings. If you always exercise for 30 minutes, bump it up to 45 minutes. Sometimes you have to switch things up to rev-up the weight loss again. Are you getting in enough water each day? When is the bulk of your 1200-1500 calories being eaten? If the bulk is eaten at night - move that bulk to the morning time.

Sometimes a few simple changes is all you need to get things going again. Have you discussed your eating habits with your doc/dietician? Are you watching the fat grams too along with the calories? If your eating habits are not the issue, I'd change up the exercising.

Good luck & continued success!

I have been away for several days and wat I noticed is that I "cheat" more when I don't have someone or something to be accountable to. Weird. But, pretty much have stayed between 1200-1500 calories and am exercising at least once a day with either strength traing or cardio, sometimes both and have not lost one single solitary pound....:(, any suggestions? I had gastric bypass in April of 09 and am 40#" from goal weight. Total weight loss to date is 225#'s. Thanks, Heidi
