BlkEssence, you should never eat so few calories, what is happening in your case is that your body is converting to starvation mode so every single thing you eat it is storing and coverting to fat. I know because I did this and a nutrionist at my Dr.'s office told me that it's like back in the cave man days, God made our bodies this way to protect them. So when we go without all of the calories we should eat to fuel our bodies our bodies start sending out a signal that sais "hey she's starving us, lock it down" and that is what your body is doing. Increase your calories and keep burning the calories and you will lose, I promise.
Here's to a healthier me.

1000 calories is way to little. I learned this the hard way. I worked hard and didnt not lose weight. Your body knows that your activity level is high, but you are not taking in enough calories. So it is saving what you do eat. You may be burning protien not fat. Which is breakdown of your muscles.Sad

Try to eat at least 1200-1400 calories a day or your body goes into starvation mode and you will lose muscle. When you lose muscle your matobolism will slow down and you will not lose as much weight. You need to eat 3 meals and 2 snacks a day to keep your metabolism up to burn fat.

having lost 10lbs, I see none of it was from my waist?
so I will eventually tackle my belly? Do I run the risk of losing muscle instead of my gut if I am not doing certain exercises?

Keeping track!
everybody is different, and everybody needs different amounts to lose weight. One size does not fit all, you just have to keep tweaking your calorie consumption until you find what works for you best ...

Drink lots of water. If you can, try drinking the Benefiber packets in your bottled water. It keeps you feeling full which helps during the detox phase and it helps with bloat, belly fat, and energy.
