Hi, Do you have the same problem?

Options
Recently, I tried this MFP and lost 5 lbs in the first week. However, my weight remains the same ever since. I strictly followed my recommend calorie intake amount and exercised. I currently weigh 135 lbs at 5'5. I couldn't figure out why. Any suggestions?

    How many calories are you eating a day, what is your exercise, how long has your weight stayed the same, etc?

    Open your food diary.

    I eat around 900 calories a day and walk for 1 hour at 3.5 mph and bike for 1 hour under 10 mph. I weighed 140 lbs before I started this program 3 weeks ago. I lost 5 lbs in my first week. But my weight remains the same for the 2nd and 3rd week.

    If its only over a 3 week period then don't sweat it. Stick to eating right and exercising. Your body needs time to adjust. Its not a fast process which i know can be discouraging but stay positive and keep working hard, that is what will help you reach your goal...

    Remember losing weight is 90 percent what you eat and 10 percent exercising... Its all about maintaining a healthy calorie deficit.

    Stay positive and continue to work hard! It will pay off....

    I also agree, eat more calories to avoid starvation mode...

    Make sure you eat your calories back from exercise...

    Thank you, everyone. I've never realized that maybe my body IS in starvation mode. No wonder I often feel dizzy when I suddenly stand up. I will try a little more calories.

    You are dizzy when you stand up and a thousand alarm bells aren't going off in your head?

    I (sometimes) feel dizzy when I get up too. I am eating 2500+ calories every day. I exercise regularly. I am at bodyfat lower than 15%.

    Now the dizziness when getting up may be caused by eating too little, or it may not be.
