@soontobmrsc:  Hang in there!  I have a couple of thoughts…

1) it takes time

2) are you eating enough calories that your body is metabolically active?  Sometimes we overdo it on the diet, and at those times I find myself not losing weight because I go hypometabolic.

I had pledged to myself to lose my baby weight by 7 months after delivery.  It was so hard, but I did it!  But once I stopped pushing so hard, started making the workouts more fun, and changed some of the things I was eating as a rule, I ended up losing more than I planned.  Right now I’m at my pre-wedding weight!  Yay!  But I’m on a strict no soy, no egg, no dairy diet.  This dramatically helped with weight loss.

I remember way back when I did WW, it took me awhile before the weight started to come off.  I think it just might take some people longer for your body to adjust.  Hang in there…it sounds like you’re doing everything right!!  =)

@soontobmrsc:

I’m not doing weight watchers, by I have been coating calories and working out like crazy (I’m actually on the treadmill right now finishing a 6 mile run/walk and posting from my phone) and I’ve only lost like a pound so far. Luckily, my scale does fat % as well and that tells me I’ve lost 5 pounds of fat. So it may be that youve lost fat but are gaining water and some muscle as well. Keep at it!

Are you accounting for carbs? You don’t have to go crazy- but maybe limit them to one meal- or at least cut them in half. I find that if I have two- low carb and protein filled meals- I can justify something like pasta- and I end up eating way more veggie.

I started WW for the first time 3 weeks ago and so far, I’ve only been losing 1 lb per week.  I haven’t been feeling so hot lately, so my workouts have been less than what I usually do.  I think that if you change up your workouts and not worry so much about it, it will happen.

Are you eating snacks in between meals? I graze throughout the day (I’m on my 3rd week of weight watchers) and that revs up your metabolism. Instead of three meals, I eat constantly. A little something every two-three hours or so. Have you had your thyroid checked?

It’s tough.  You’re always going to hit a plateau somewhere in the weight loss game.  I did for a few weeks…I always get stuck around one number.  I changed up my workout routine and the types of food I was eating.  Before I was eating higher protein very little carbs and fat.  Surpisingly adding in some carbs and eating high protein snacks really helped. 

Snacks are really good.  Eat 3 meals and about 2 100-200 calories snacks between meals.  Gets you over that hunger and through the day!

With the carb thing I also arranged to eat most of my carbs in the morning and then taper off on carbs throughout the day.  It helps get over those plateaus.

Counting calories is really the only thing that’s worked for me in the past, with working out (cardio)  If you have an iPhone, there’s a cool (Free) app that will help you count and manage your caloric intake and keeps track of your goal.  Also, there are the good ol diet pills (which I don’t encourage anyone to take) but sometimes drastic times call for drastic measures….I’m just saying
