Dizzigrl's Journal, 18 August 2009

So I have been counting calories and working out for the last 2 months and I have still managed to stay at the same weight. People tell me I look like ive lost weight but I havent, I have also been measuring and there is not much difference there either. I am at a frustration point. All I can think to do is work out more and maybe change the foods I am eating. Any suggestions?????

Don't be too hard on yourself. It takes time. It's better to lose weight slowly than too quickly. Make sure you eat enough to support your active lifestyle. Have your body measurements changed since you started? The scale will not necessarily reflect the changes your body is going through because of muscle gain, etc.

Sometimes, it's not just about how much but "what" you are eating. Change up the foods you are eating. Get in lot's of fresh veggies, fruits, protein, lean dairy. Dairy has been show to help reduce fat. You might also try eating 5 or 6 smaller meals with a little protein at each meal instead of 3 meals. Getting in protein at breakfast is a good way to jump start your metabolism. For example: egg/fruit, yogurt/fruit, hummus/veggies, string cheese/veggies, salad/chicken/ etc. Find foods you like and combine them. Changing things up can really help. Give it a try for a week and see what happens.
