This is the most annoying thing for me. For the past year I have weighed between 110-114lb depending on the weigh in day--once in a while I gained a few lbs but 95% of the year that is what I weighed whether I was working out like a machine or just doing an okay job at watching what I eat and exercising! Its definitely frustrating. Christa and Derek recommended doing my strength training first and then my cardio afterwards so that is what I will be doing as soon as I get the 30ds. I have also read to drop your calories by 250 and see if that helps reset your metabolism?
I'm right there with you, but I'm trying to focus on the bigger picture. Loosing too much weight at once is not healthy. About 1.5 lbs a week is normal and safe. If you loose too quickly, you're likely to rebound weight gain. Although you're not at your ideal size, I'm willing to bet you're in the normal range. When you don't have as much to loose, I don't think it comes off as quickly.
I know how you feel though. I lost all of 6 lbs in the month of February. I worked my *** off literally and ate well, but the weight is still there. What I HAVE noticed is a change in appearance, a change in endurance and a change in overall health. I sleep better, I feel better, I have more energy, so I must be doing something right, right?
