Have you changed your eating habits as well? I can work out an hour every day and gain weight if I’m not watching my diet. When I finally started dieting I dropped thirty pounds  while only exercising a few days a week. Also, what were your work outs?

Did you take your measurements and check your body fat percentage before starting your workout routine/diet?  It could be that you’re gaining muscle.

Awww, don’t get too down on yourself. 1) you could have gained muscle 2) what you eat is 80% of losing weight 3) you may want to look into HIT training instead of constant running. It burns more fat. 

Good luck and stay positive!

It doesn’t sound like you are getting enough calories for the amount of exercise you are doing. It will make your metabolism stall. Up your calories or cut down on the exercise.

@LizzPatt2381:  I know the feeling.  I’ve been working out 5 days/week for 6 1/2 months and haven’t lost a pound.  I don’t even eat that bad!  I’ve definitely gained muscle, but I would LOVE to drop a few pounds.  Hang in there.

You are eating far too few calories to get much in the way of long term results.

I’m now around 200/210 pounds, and I get about 4 – 5 hours of moderate to intense activity a week (burning about 4,000 calories). I can still lose 2 pounds a *week* by eating 1800 – 2000 calories a day. Given your starting weight, you should be eating at least as much.
