Hi Andrew..
Have you tried taking a day off to let your body adjust? maybe just go for a walk? Are you eating too little? make sure you adjust your calorie intake up when you are doing extra workouts or you WONT lose. believe me i speak from experience..and i know it goes against all the cals in cals out stuff..but its true..if you dont fuel your body correctly it will think you are starving it and hold onto everything!
if you are doing those things, just hang in and you WILL see results!!

Hi! I'm JJ from the Albany area. I'm back on Sparkpeople once again, unfortunately because I didn't give it my ALL last time. This go around I'm doing a little better because I just don't want to die earlier than I'm suppose to because of something I can prevent. This mindset is helping me finally. Good Luck to us all....

I hear your frustration and have been there, done that many times over!

One thing I have learned over the years is that physical activity is WONDERFUL for shaping our bodies, lowering blood pressure, improving health and turning fat into muscle which helps to lose inches...BUT!

Exercise has relatively little bang for the buck when it comes to losing weight.

For weight loss it is all about our food choices and quantities...so if it is weight loss you're particularly after I would pay close attention to your food choices and quantity...this is where you will get the results you're looking for.

Don't allow your discouragement morph into backsliding...because we all know THAT doesn't get us anywhere!

Keep putting one foot ahead of the other in whatever way you can.

One thing I've done recently is made up my mind that being hungry is a good thing and shows I'm on the right track. I no longer look at hunger as an emergency, as something I need to fill. This has been a big help!

emoticon ANDREWJASON and emoticon to SparkPeople and the team...Nice to have you with us on the journey to a healthier lifestyle.

I have to agree with @HERKIMERANGEL80, more specifics would help before issuing any advice. Maybe make your page public and make your tracker info viewable would help so you don't have to enter info more than once would make it easier. In addition to the questions already asked by @HERKIMER, have you been doing to the same exercises as you started with?

You're not alone here. We're here to help each other! emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

Hi Sue! I know how ya feel! How long have you been working out and watching portions? A couple weeks? A couple months? How long is each workout session? 20 minutes? 30 minutes? When you are doing your cardio, do you think you could have a conversation with someone comfortably or is your breathing labored? What kind of weight or weights do you strength train with? And are you tracking calories or just eyeballing the portions on your plate? I'm sure with a little more specific info, someone on this team will be able to give you some good advice! Don't give up! emoticon

Hi! I'm Sue. I work out everyday with strength training one day and cardio the next. I have been careful with portion control, and yet the scale doesn't budge. What am I doing wrong?
