blessings45 Posted February 13, 2011 Share Posted February 13, 2011 (edited) I'm new to this forum, but I'm trying to dive in to this new lifestyle. I like the idea of an on-line fitness journal . . . maybe I will be able to pick up some advice and pointers along the way. Weight loss has never been difficult for me in the past, but the weight I'm trying to lose right now isn't budging. Basically, a rather depressing holiday season bludgeoned me in the face with 15 pounds. (Those late night cookies couldn't have had anything to do with it, could they?) I've lost 6, but my weight is staying PUT right now. I've been eating between 1400 and 1800 calories (but I tend to stay around 1500), with a pretty hardcore spin class thrown in almost every day. I don't want my net calories to be too low, but I'm definitely not losing weight. My stats from the last few days: calorie counts are approximate, I tend to round up and down slightly to keep myself from going crazy and quittingFeb 9th: 1550 cals, spin classFeb 10th: 1400 cals, spin classFeb 11th: 1580 cals, spin classFeb 12th: 1700 cals, short 25 minute spin class morn/Elliptical machine 30 minutes evening This is all far less than I ate maintaining my original weight. I'm very confused. I should note that outside of my workouts, I'm very sedentary.... long hours at a desk job. I'm eating healthier than I ever have... salads, fruits, vega, fiber cereal, almond milk (homemade!), sprouted quinoa, wild rice, olive and coconut oil. Lots of ground flax seed, almonds all day long. Nut butters, this coconut/chia oil desserty tasting stuff I got from Living Tree Community. It's been, in a word, delicious. (I've started taking pictures of my salads. Seriously.) I will update in a few days, and try to be patient with my body in the meantime. (aaaaargh!)
