A Plateau?

Friday, January 24, 2014

Well, I've been staying around the same weight for about a month now. I am still eating at a calorie deficit, and still exercising regularly. I didn't change a thing, except to decrease my daily calorie allowance as I lost weight. My weight ticker shows me at 166.6, but that was actually a fluke that happened last week, and my weight swung back up to around 170 for no apparent reason.

In order to try to get myself losing again, I decreased my calories by a further 100, down to around 1500 from around 1600. I am not sure if this will help, but I must say I am feeling terribly down about this, especially because I'm going through each day really hungry, keeping my calories down anyhow, and there doesn't seem to be any payoff for that misery.


I'm only 10 pounds from getting into the healthy BMI range. This is so frustrating!

    Sometimes you hit a plateau because your eating too little. If your not eating enough calories to support daily body functions and to compensate some for the amt of exercise your doing, your body slows down to try and hold on to what it has. I would suggest increasing your calories by a bit and try that for 1-2 weeks and continue your exercise etc and see what happens.
