I was wondering if you guys could look at my diet and exercise and give me some suggestions of where I am going wrong. I weigh myself every week and i am continually putting on and taking off more than 2 kg's per week but the nett result is not going down...
this has been going on for nearly 3 months.
The food and exercise listed is exact. I am only guessing the weights of some foods which may be causing the problem? but really a whole 2 kgs (4.4 pounds) each time... that just seams a bit unfair.

You might want to limit your carbs a little bit. Give that a shot and see what happens. No pasta, bread or potatoes and I bet you start to drop.

I'm having the same problem and was thinking to limit carbs like Sherillynn suggested. Very depressing to work so hard and see no results.

One issue is that due to issues outside of our control, it is perfectly normal for the weight we read on the scale to be up or down on a daily basis. If you measure daily, you would see it bouncing all over the place. If you measure weekly, you may see wide swings with no way of knowing whether it's a trend or a fluke.

I was having the same problem with 2 or so lbs since Christmas time or before, mid Dec, kept going down then would pop right back up again. I started drinking far more water but other than that kept things about the same and it's finally starting to come off, am down another 2 on top of the 2 flip floppin ones.
You could cut out some of the carbs, it's hard to tell when your on your own diet just what your plan is, are you low carb or low calorie or low fat?
Stay the coarse no matter, it will start again and you'll be doing the happy dance. Could always try doing it now anyway, it'll burn more of those pesky calories while you stare it down saying I will win this battle!

Thanks for the great advise guys.
Im working on the idea of Calories in VS calories out= weight loss. but I think im going to have to try another tack.

The up/down flucuation is normal and easily explained by whether you retained some water that week, or varied the fiber in your diet.
The fact you not losing weight raises a few items:
- are you accurate in recording? Get a postal scale to weigh things, and measure volumes carefully for a couple days. You may find overlooked calories.
- don't skip meals
- are you drinking 8 cups H20 daily? This oddly really helps me out.
- flip your ratio of carbs vs protein, so you control your insulin levels. Your grams Protein should be above your grams of carbs.
- add protein/fat snacks mid morning and afternoon, to keep your metabolism running. I like string cheese as a quick answer.
Goal 1 - Run half marathon in early June (run not walk)
Goal 2 - Drop 100 lbs total before my birthday in late June

* on My Diet Calendar
jwill77nc2 is correct. Also, if there is NO asterisk (*) after the food or exercise then that number will not be counted in the Challenges and Contests and Mini Challenges this program offers.

Try and try again
My point of view is simple. You need to make the connection between the body, the mind and your own inner spirit. It's easy to say "this is not working" but we need to give it a chance ...
