I am doing the right things but the weight is not coming off. This week no loss! I'm trying not to get discouraged, I must be at a plateau.

Newness. Whatever you do, don't quit. I went the whole month of September without losing anything. But I stuck with eating right and exercising and the weight is coming off again. You may need to reevaluate your eating and recalculate your RDI. Are you counting calories and tracking your foods? This weight lost is tricky. You have to eat the right amount of calories for your body while exercising. But there is a balance and if its not right, you will not lose.

I used another RDI calculator. I notice that when calculating your RDI on FS, it only wants you to lose a lb a week, which is rather slow. 2 lbs a week is still healthy weight lost. I added the link below. You can add in more factors to give you a more accurate count. It gives the RDI for maintenance, weight lost, and extreme weight lost. Hope this helps.

^ That's a pretty good link. I'm going to change my RDI on FS right now. How did you get the bar in your signature?

I agree with the Mifflin-St Jeor formula. It seems to be more accurate for my RDI too.

To add the loss ticker, go to My Toolbox. You'll find the option for the loss ticker under My Signature.
