Plateau or Decreased Cardio?
Saturday, March 31, 2012
I have a question. Let me give you a little history first.
I am currently in a Cam Boot for a break in my ankle and a break in the side of my foot. I have been in it since March 19th. Therefore I have to do very limited cardio exercises. I have been doing at the least 20 minutes of strength exercises for the upper body and core everyday but one. On 3/18 I weighed 154 now I weigh 150. For 2 weeks I have stayed at 150. I eat the right things and track everyday. I drink 8 to 10 cups of water everyday. I was losing about 1 to 2 lbs a week. But now I'm not losing at all.
Am I at a plateau? Can you plateau after losing just 10 lbs? How often do you plateau?
I know I should look at the accomplishments instead of looking at the not losing anything right now, but I'm inpatient, and if this is a plateau, where do I go from there?
I am new to this, I've never had to worry about losing weight but now I definitely do. I was gaining alot and becoming very unfit as well and just didn't feel good physically.
I'm just wondering what others think about this.
