I'm new to the forum and I'm hoping someone out there can shed some light on what I am doing wrong. I have searched previous posts but wasn't really able to find a response specific enough.
On 7 January 2011 I commenced a change in lifestyle in an effort to lose weight, improve muscle tone and generally improve health and fitness. It is now day 17 and over that time I have been sticking to a 1000 - 1200 calorie per day diet (no processed foods or added salt, sugar, caffien to my diet) and have exercised 12 out of the 17 days (RPM/Spin or PUMP). Prior to commencing this change I estimate that I would have been on a 2200 calorie per day MINIMUM diet which included lots of fat, carbs, salt and sugar.
Since 7 January 2011 I have lost a total of 300 grams!!!On the premise that I would be building muscle which therefore wouldn't be showing on the scales, I took body measurements. 8 days from taking my first measurments there has been NO CHANGE. What the?!!!
Please help, I'm losing motivation fast ... what am I doing wrong?
