Plateau???

Postby aramat1980 » Tue Mar 27, 2007 8:56 am

I've been thinking re my post in my progress pages. Would I have plateaud already? I have been watching what I eat for about two weeks now but I have been doing the same amount of exercise for over six weeks. Is it time to change my exercise instead?

Just a thought if anyone knows. Also, how do I contact the PT's?

hi tamara you would have to see a PT at the gym. Liz and em here do PT so maybe they can offer you some suggestions. i dont think you would have plateaued already. perhaps something just isnt adding up. perhaps the best suggestion i can make is to post your exercise diary and food diary here for us to see. perhaps you arent eating enough, or not often enough, or not doing enough cardio or weight resistance training, or not dirnking enough water etc.

For you to plateau you have to stay at the same weight for more than a week, you gained this week? So I don't think you are in a plateau state.

As with mixing up your exercise, I think that's a great idea as your body doesn't get used to doing the same thing so it will help in weight loss.

As to personal trainers does your gym not have services of PT's? Otherwise just go to yellow pages on line and find local ones.

I think it might be not eating enough. I've struggled to get to 1200cal a day for some weird reason. But still doing the same amount of cardio and have since added my weights into it, last week. I mean I had no trouble going over and beyond my BMR of 1500 a day previously. Or I wouldn't have gained weight.

I go to the gym on the RAAF Base and we are not allowed to use the PT's there. They're for the RAAF so I need to find some other place to find out.

Would my doctor be able to tell me?

Kate - Liz and Em, are they their names on this site? I might PM them.

You really do want to be making your 1200 cals a day especially if you are doing regular training. I found I got really hungry on 1200 when I increased my exercise to a daily routine, had to increase to around 1400 so I wouldn't chew my own arm off.

I found this on the black more site thought it might help you out.

After an initial loss, we often plateau. Understand this, expect it and don’t be disappointed. Continue the plan, increase your exercise levels. Focus on the health benefits better food and exercise deliver, not just the potential weight loss. Tell yourself you’re feeling better, sleeping better and looking better.

I am re-reading The Confessions Of A Reformed Dieter for the umpteenth time and one good thing she points out is that if we are doing the same amount of exercise week in, week out our bodies get used to and there fore will not burn off our energy stores as efficiently, we therefore need to mix it up (as has already been suggested) and increase the intensity....and yes you must eat at least 1200 calories a day if not more with exercise....

(hehehe Kim I now have a mental image of you chamming on your arm!!)
