I am a 34 year old male with height of 175cm (69 inches).
Approximately 5 weeks ago, I weighed approx 105 KG (231 pounds, obese) and decided to try and lose some weight.
In 1 week I lost 6 KG, in first 2 weeks I lost a total of 10 kg and in the first 4 weeks I lost a total of approximately 15 KG, now (for the last few weeks) I can not seem to loose any more weight.
I am down to 90 KG (198 pounds) and have continued the same exercise and eating routine (see below), but for the last few weeks, my body just seems to sit at this weight, but I would like to try and loose another 15 KG (33 pounds) to get to a healthier weight.
Can someone please help me understand why I can not seem to loose any more weight?
Am I missing something important or not understanding something?
My exercise routine (for the past 6 weeks) has been jogging for approximately 1 hour each day (e.g. either "30 mins in the morning before breakfast and 30 mins at night before dinner", or "1 hour in the morning or at night"). I try to keep my heart beat between 110 and 150 beats per minute (normally at the higher end of 150).
My eating has been very disciplined (compared to my old self) with the following on most days:
+ breakfast = 1 weetbix with low fat mil and maybe a couple of spoons of low fat yogurt
+ morning tea = maybe a piece of fruit (if anything at all)
+ lunch = vegetable salad with a bit of protein (e.g. lean chicken or turkey or seafood)
+ afternoon tea = maybe a carrot or piece of fruit (if anything at all)
+ dinner = either a vegetable salad with a bit of protein (e.g. lean chicken or turkey or seafood) or maybe nothing if not feeling hungry or maybe some fruit or vegetables
note: maybe twice a week I will go out for dinner (and this is when I might spoilt myself a bit, but nothing absolutely crazy)
I am confused why this exercise and eating approach has worked so well for the first few weeks, and now I can not seem to lower my weight any more.
What am I doing wrong?
What could I be doing better?
Can you please help, as I am starting to lose motivation?
