Just a little stuck

Postby jibjab » Sun Apr 22, 2012 7:05 pm

Hey all,

I'm just a little stuck as to what to do next and I thought that it would it wise to try and find a place to ask a few general questions so thanks to anyone that can help.

I started on this grand plan to lose a bit of weight and get healthy just in general.

So far since early January I have lost 16.5kg and while I'm quite proud, I still have around 7kg that I would like to lose.

I haven't been able to shift the scales for about 3 weeks (I started at 105.5kg and I'm currently 89.5kg) and was wondering if someone could give a few ideas in what I can do to change things up or improve to get me back to burning the fat off.

This is what I have been doing

Wow, you've REALLY done well.

Have you tried having a couple of days off to "fool" your body?

I could be totally wrong... But maybe as funny as it is, you aren't eating enough... Chuck in some small snacks between you meals and see what happens there, I also agree that 1 day off a week would help your body recover as well... wishing you the best of luck - let us know how you go.

Small steps... AND... POOF! Weight gone :)
