This week I did 2 hours of cardio kick, 1 hour of Zumba, attempted jogging total of 5 miles, plus strength training....and I've lost not even one ounce...how is that even possible?! I've been following my diet...I just don't get it!

I've found increasing exercise can make me stall, too. Eventually the weight loss should begin again, as your body adjusts. Don't let yourself get discouraged. Stay with the diet.

Stick with it your doing awesome on the exercise. A lot of weight loss starts with nutrition. What dose your meal plan look like?
I Rely on GODS word to see me through each moment of every day He is my strength.

Meal plan right now is usually oatmeal for breakfast, chef salad with no dressing for lunch, some type of meat and veggies for dinner, no eating after 8pm and lots of water! Although I do drink 2 diet cokes a day.

Hi there. I see this question a LOT on the message boards, and I found an article that sums it up pretty well. Take a look and see if this applies to your situation.

What it all boils down to is water retention from doing a new workout or pushing our muscles further than normal.
If you can spend years beating yourself up mentally and remain standing, you can HANDLE a few muscle cramps and cravings. A little pain has NOTHING on feeling insecure. Remember that next time you wanna quit. You can do this!

I was stalled 3 weeks - no loss - although easily 30k (total) Cal deficit and treadmill 2X a day. I skipped 1 day and dropped 5lbs overnight. Weird. If I skip the rest of the month I'll reach goal! (Kidding!)


I'm not losing WEIGHT. I'm converting FAT to MUSCLE to be healthier.

I wish I read that article a week ago. lol.

I went from morbidly obese to being the owner of TABDIG - a weight loss coaching service that helps people worldwide losing weight. It's been an amazing journey. From October 4th 2010 to April 3rd 2012 I lost half my body weight - 80 kilos/170 lbs. Since then, I have had two cosmetic surgeries to remove excess skin. I have now quadrupled my strength, gained several kilos in muscle mass, and today I focus on building muscle, optimizing my diet, living healthy and helping people to reach the very same goals. I am stronger, healthier, thinner, happier! If you feel that you need help losing weight, don't hesitate to send me an inbox message.

one week is not a reliable interval to assess fat loss let alone weight loss. Overexercising can create some water retention due to muscle swelling ,

Try to track fat %, measures with a tape and calorie deficits instead without looking at the scale too often. If you are tracking your activities/intake correctly the result will come without doubt.
Checking the scale too often is one of the biggest mistakes I can think of when trying to acquire a new lifestyle

I'm in the same boat working out and not losing yet. I'm just persevering and logging food. It will come off!

When I get a sweet tooth I eat 2 Tbs of peanut butter...only 7 gms of carbs. It really works because the peanut butter is thick and rich and you can savor the sweetness for a long time.
