I've been here about 3 weeks now. My first 10 days or so I lost 3 lbs. I weighed in a second time this past weekend and there's been no change... if anything I'm up 1/2 a pound! I'm working really hard and I'm not seeing any returns... so I think maybe I'm doing something wrong. It feels too early to have hit a plateau... and everyone keeps posting about how they've lost 8-10 lbs the first week they've been here! I'm starting to feel really defeated. If anyone can suggest what I'm doing wrong, that'd be great.
I'm 5'7", 206 lbs. My caloric intake on this site is supposed to be about 1300 cals before excercise, usually 1500-1800 after excercise. I have never gone over, I'm usually a bit under but not extremely... lets say I'm usually between 1300 and 1600 cals a day. I'm doing cardio everyday for at least 25 minutes, often longer.
I think I'm making healthy food choices too.... for example, oatmeal, yogurt and a peice of fruit at breakfast, a chicken wrap and more fruit at lunch, and fish, brown rice and a side salad at dinner. I throw in snacks if I need more calories, usually fruit, crackers with salsa, a bit of cheese, yogurt, 100 cal snack packs etc.
Is it normal to hit a plateau this early? I'm depressed :frown: Please help?
