Hi to you all,
I came across this website and thought I'd have a look around. I do have a question but I'm not sure if anyone will be able to help.
My current situation is that I have lost 16 stones in weight, and for quite some time I have been having 1200 calories a day. I see a trainer twice a week and also go to the gym (can't say I really enjoy it but it's a necessary evil)... The problem is I am now not losing weight at all...touch wood I have never gained any but I'm just stuck!!!

Obviously something needs changing, but I can hand on heart say I definitely am not filling myself about my calorie intake and before it's said, and I do agree, the maths of energy in and energy out just don't make sense.. I know I should still be losing weight..

Any suggestions anyone, I really need some help.....


Thankyou

First-of-all 16 stones!!! WOW that's amazing work congratulations!!!

The only thing I can suggest is swapping it all about. If you have a routine of foods you generally eat week to week, find some new recipes and swap them about.

Same goes for exercise, speak to your trainer and get them to work you up a new routine, or go swimming instead of the gym.

42" jeans(25/01/2013) 40"(28/02/2013) 38"(20/03/2013) 36"(25/05/2013)
Down from 60" waist jeans since June 21st 2012.

Still keeping to my 26" jeans, but they are too tight for comfort. too many tasty things in the US, and over Xmas.

Onwards and Downwards! Smile

Riocaz is right, make a change, it will boost up your metabolism. Congratulations on such a big weight loss. Your body probably wants to rest now for a bit that's why you're in a platou. Just don't give up, some people here on fat secret say that they had it for months. Ah i hope i never get there. It must be very discouraging but stay strong Smile Good luck

I fixed my plateau pretty quick, after i realized what the issue was. If you see a trainer (and work out) several times every week and only eat 1200 calories per day, then I'd say you don't eat ENOUGH. Your body might think that you're starving. See my bio page here on FatSecret for a possible solution. I have been right where you seem to be, and I fixed it. Smile I hope it helps. Stalling is no fun.

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.
