Sometimes helps to shake things up. Try a couple of days on extra cals and do a different exercise regime for a bit. Could help in kick starting the loss again. Smile

There are many reason you stop losing. One of my top reasons is hormonal. If you are PMSing, you will not see a change on the scale, because of water retention. Don't get discouraged because you are still loosing. You will see it pay off the following week.

If you still are not loosing by the second week you may need do like Jonny mentioned.
You have lost a lot so far. GREAT GOING GIRL. Don't let this little set back discourage you.

Perhaps wait a few days but keep up what your doing, in any case you will be fine, and the number wont scare you.

If your RDI is 2400 and you only eat 1200 calories for a while then most likely you are not eating enough. Your body thinks that you are starving, even if you don't feel it.
I made something I call Indulgence Diet, that took me out of that very dilemma. Check out my bio Page for info on it. It's free and it works. I think you could be losing weigh much more efficiently than you are.
Feel free to add me as a buddy or inbox me if you have questions.

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.

I definitely agree that you probably need to eat way less than 2400 calories per day. My intake is supposed to be around 1200, in order to lose a lb a week. There are weeks I do keep under that amount, but still don't lose.
I'll be very interested in reading some of the advice here.

Personally I think if you are given an RDI then this is what you should aim for. If you think it is too high then lower it, but don't halve it. Just because someone else has 1200 doesn't mean you have to, especially if they weigh a completely different amount to you. Maybe increase a bit and see what happens?

How many calories you eat is important but what those calories are is even more important. Lean protein and high fiber if you must have bread. Your carbs should mainly come vegetables.

ChillChic, as long as you have a calorie deficit, it's LESS important what those calories are. If you want to fine tune your weight loss, then sure - look at carbs and proteins, but regardless you WILL lose weight. Don't make it harder than it is. Smile

I've hit those plateaus too. It is frustrating, but I feel better since my doctor explained it to me this way. Your brain does various scans of your system on a daily basis. As long as everything stays the same it's fine and losing a little weight isn't a cause for concern. But if you lose more weight than it feels is "healthy" for you based on it's internal readings, it puts the brakes on and slows your metabolism until it can run a more complete check and recalibrate to your new "healthy" readings. Then it lets the metabolism speed back up and resumes normal function and you begin to lose again. Just keep doing what you are doing and make sure you don't go below 1200 calories and the loss should start again. You're doing great! Don't get discouraged
