Why aren't I losing weight? :(

Postby Della » Thu Oct 15, 2009 1:42 pm

Hey ppl!

I have been trying to lose weight for the past couple of weeks. Initially I lost 2.5 kgs in the first few days (water weight), and now it isnt budging.

These are my stats:

- Height: 174cm
- Weight: 87kg

This is what I am doing:
- Trying to stay under 1400cals a day
- Doing Jillian's 30 day shred video every night
- Doing a bit of weeding/gardening every day
- Taking reductil (an appetite surpressant prescribed to me by the doc)

(Confession: I splurged once or twice but never went over 1600cals/day.)
Note: Reductil is supposed to be VERY good and effective but I haven't felt the effects as yet?? :?

Can anyone give me some advice?
Should I be eating less? How many cals?
Should I work out more?
ANNNYYYY Advice is REALLYY REALLYYYY welcome.

Thanks

Hi Della,

If you're in NSW i really recommend the "get healthy" free coach line. They're all dieticians etc and will help you by telling you what you need to do, as well as give you heaps of motivation :)

Thanks for your advice.

Czarina, I joined calorie king today and it is great so far! I just have a lil problem, my suggested net calories is 1540 and I only had a total of 718 today (1008 from food minus 290 from exercise).. is this really bad?

Oh and Shay, unfortunately Im in VIC... but those free get healthy coaches sound great! hopefully they expand into VIC soon. :)

Anyway, thank uuu and any more advice from anyone is really welcome :)

Della eat all your calories! This might by why your weight loss has slowed down!

Plus more food = :D :D :D lol.

The only bad thing about CK is that the numbers it gives for calories burnt, are not all that accurate...the walking calories are fairly spot on, I believe. The best thing would be to get an Heart Rate Monitor that tracks calories burnt, then you know for sure.

But, you must eat your exercise calories back! Otherwise you won't have much room to move when you get close to goal, plus you'll be more likely to plataue.
