I am 34 yo female, currently at 218lb no health problems eat..
I have decided to get healthier... I count every item in fitness pal, I have been doing 16 fast /8Hr eating and have been eating clean, balanced 1000-1200 calories a day in that window and have been drinking between 80-120 oz water a day no sodas ext plus an hour of exercise reaching a good heart rate during and it “says” I’m Burning 250-300 cal during exercise but the scale has not moved an ounce. Every day for a week exactly since I have started this journey no movement at all and I am not sure what to do.....

    Hi, thanks for the replies... I am weighing everything Grams ect on my digital scaleand also I have been trying very hard under my fitness pal to get everything 100 percent accurate as far as what I am eating. If anything I always err on the side of caution and use the highest calorie count if I’m unsure. Im not on my period either so I think bloating is not an issue. I usually find that I have ate like 600 calories by 6pm which is 300 cal breakfast eggs, toast ect and a 300 calorie lunch of 2 cups romaine some light dressing and 1.5 oz. ground 90/10 beef with veggies which is like 280 calories... I pound the water all day which is crazy filling and I workout around 5:30-6:30pm just a fast paced walk to keep my heart rate up for an hour and when I’m done at 7pm I still need like 750 calories just to get to 1200 but I’m not hungry really. I know its crazy but I’m forcing myself to eat the last bit of calories before my 8pm cutoff for 16/8 but It takes a lot of healthy eating to get a lot of calories thats for sure... my sodium has been a tad high but my husband who works out religiously swears that if my calories are lower like 1200-1500 a day and I’m working out its science and there is no reason not to loose weight. Its frustrating just not seeing even an ounce gone in a whole week I’m just wondering if besides upping my calories and shooting for like 400 a meal to make it at least 1200 if thats the only thing I should change. I’m stumped really sigh....

    I guess my biggest thing is I know it takes time 1-2 pounds a week is usually average but I just want to make sure I’m not missing anything that would hinder weight loss Ive never in the past had a problem to not at least see a little movement but a whole week and being the exact same is really crazy 😜
