I am a mental health professional who works in substance abuse. I spend most of my day sitting! I have been focusing on self-care since October since burnout is inevitable in my profession. I started with the spiritual aspect by taking time for myself. I am now adding food and activity. Next will be a consistent sleep pattern. lol, I am a night owl who does not like to get up in the morning.

Going on 3rd day and haven't lost anything, is this common?
Lovingmama seems knowledgeable, so here it goes. I quit smoking in January 2011. In April I wound up with a leg fracture and have been instructed to not walk or jog until the specialists figure out why at 52 I am getting spontaneous tibia fractures. Hence, I have gained about 25 pounds and weigh around 180. I am 5'8". I can lose about 5 pounds and that is it even if I am working out on the elliptical, crunches, weights, etc, and eating between 1000-1200 calories. I have been trying seriously since January 2012. Ideas??

This may be what is happening with me. I was eating very few calories, but not losing weight. Confused

I am trying to be consistent about when I weigh. I cheat and get on the scale regularly. Then I am disappointed. Once a week weigh in. That is all!
