My scales refuse to budge
Saturday, April 18, 2009
Actually they have not screamed lately when I step on them but they refuse to move downward. Very frustrating especially on those days where I am feeling very hungry because I am staying on the program. I usually snack at mid-morning and mid-afternoon on low cal or low fat items so my total calories remain within the range allowed by the nutrition tracker (calculated using my exercise program). I exceeded the range 1 day out of 7 but my eating for the week averaged well within the range.
I increased my exercise which should have taken care of any extra calories for that one day. On Mon, Wed and Fri, I worked out for an hour. On Tue and Thur, I did 30 minutes cardio and 30 minutes strength training.
Still there was no move on the weight during the last week or even two weeks.
I am trying very hard to stay positive and realize that these things take time but I am one of those people who need to understand the WHYS. So does anyone have any ideas?
Do I need to stay at the low end of the calorie range or cut carbs?
