    Default I'm not losing weight anymore!!!

    Its only been 3.5 months since my surgery, I've lost 55 lbs but havent lossed anything for about 2 weeks! I'm active and I eat less than 700 calories a day! I have introduced carbs back in but not excessive. I'm concerned.

    You are most likely on a weight loss plateau. Most of the time they can last from 2 to 4 weeks. Don't get discouraged! Just keep doing what you are doing and maybe even increase your calories a little and change up your exercise and you should break through. Its a very normal part of any weight loss journey. You are doing great- 55lbs lost! Fantastic!

    Are you tracking what you eat in MFP or something else?

    How much protein are you getting per day? How much water are you drinking?

    How often are you working out? What do you do and what is your average heart rate at each workout?

    I am almost 7 months out and have been experiencing I stay the same weight 2 or 3 weeks then I lose a couple of lbs. Sometimes while I am in this period I go up a lb. And I am exercising...low carb/ high protein.

    I track everything I eat from Loseit! of MFP. I could definitely increase my protein and I exercise 3 times a week!

    I know this is going to sound crazy, but try increasing your calories. My NUT told me that since I'm working out (an hour a day, five times a week) she wants me to increase to 1200 calories a day! I was completely skeptical at first, but I tried it and I finally broke my stall! She said that I was stalling because my body was in starvation mode.

    Yes.. In agreement with those that say eat more calories I've been eating between 1100 and 1400 calories a day and am still losing - when I was at about 3 months out I was eating around 900-1100 cal per day - and I've not been working out that much- something I'm working on getting better with- that being said- I have 3 little ones- they keep me quite active
    Best wishes to you - hang in there- u will see a drop soon!

    Essentially I haven't lost weight in almost a year. I work out on an elliptical 2-3 times a week and walk on the other days for a total of at least five days a week. I eat small portions still about 4-6 times a day and periodically track calories to see where I might be going over and it usually is below 2000. I lost 70 pounds and gained 3 almost immediately after I began using the elliptical so I guess that was muscle.

    What do you think is the issue? My body fat hovers just below 20%. It isn't like I want to lose more weight but I think with my activity level and calorie intake I should be able to lose weight.



    No excuses. You CAN do this!
