The scale is not moving. Keeping my calories at 1100, and following the paleo diet very well. It's week has been a nightmare of business so I have not exercised but I still thought I should be seeing some downward movement. Okay, I'll get ready for the weekend and better luck next week.

Yes, I would think you should be losing more than you are if you have been sticking to 1100 a day. Are you tracking your food honestly? Are you drinking water? Have you noticed your clothes becoming more loose? Sometimes we lose fat but don't see the scale move for a while. You might try having a couple of higher caloric days each week. Sounds strange, but I don't know how many times I have heard of someone going out to eat and having a big loss afterward, lol! Sounds weird, but maybe it boosts the metabolism. At your current weight, you should be able to eat more than you are and lose. Maybe a week of caloric cycling. (1100, 1300, 1200, 1400, etc.) It's still low enough that you should lose. Stress can also halt weight loss efforts, so exercise does play an important role. A highly stressful week may cause you to not lose. Exercise helps with stress, so it's good to squeeze in some if you can. Stick with it and change things up. Paleo is a healthy diet. You might just need to tweak the calories to get you losing again (and deal with the dress). Yoga is good for stress too.

I've been having a rough week also. Today I couldn't do 30 day shred. I felt too sick. I did manage another less exhausting workout though. I haven't lost a pound in weeks! I'm getting a bit discouraged. But darn it! We can do it! Next week is our week, we'll lose at least something! :-)

Hi Rivkah, I am with Suzi, you might be eating too low of calories. We you eat a low amount, your body can go into starvation mode, and want to hang onto everything you are feeding it. I would bump up your calories to 1,500 and see what happens. 1,100 is very low. Hopefully things will get better at work and you can start exercising again. Warmly, Nancy
