Riding a plateau, anyone want to help?
Just a note, other than the resting/sleeping numbers, I use a heart rate monitor to verify my calories burned for all my activities, so my exercise numbers are as close as I can get them without full metabolic testing. I have also used te hrm to verify that that the sleeping/resting numbers are close to what I burn for the those time periods (metallurgical engineer).

I don't eat to the rdi that this site calculates as each day my activity is different. Three days a week I partipate in an intense karate class with an average heart rate of 155 with a heart rate between 120-190 for at least an hour each class. I also met with a physical trainer once a week for a little over an hour of resistance training and an hour of ballroom dancing every week. So, that would be consistently exercise 5 days a week. This is on top of forty hours of work, and 8 hours of graduate level course work. I am incorporating a couch to 5k program now that its is lighter in the evening. However, I haven't lost anything since I incorporated the Karate in January, prior to that I was losing consistently.

You did catch me, as I haven't been consistent the last week with exercise as my Lupus and fibro were in full flare. However, I adjust my intake daily to account for the activity or lack of activity for each day so my deficit has been consistant.

Two weeks later, no change... Next step is making sure I get my water. I'm chronically dehydrated, usuallydrinking a glass or two a day. So, for the next two weeks I'm going to up my liquid intake to 117oz a day, and see if there's any change.

Thank you for all your help. I will updated this thread in the next couple of weeks. I ate my deficit today, to hopefully ''reboot'' my system and am going to try to maintain no greater than 1000kcal for the next two weeks.

After adjusting the times back to just resting/sleeping, it looks like I still have a 1300-1700 calorie deficit daily. I think I'm going to try to reduce the deficet to 1000 max, and see how it goes.

I log everything on the days I log. I've had some recent and noticeable changes in shape and muscle development, but after a month or so I think my weight should be heading down again...
