Not losing weight
If its been a long time since you worked out your body can be in shock and thats why you have actually gained some. I have been busting my hump as well and I am working on 9 weeks and I am starting to see difference not so much on the scale but in my clothes. You might want to double check you didnt drop your calorie down to quick. Sometimes it an be as easy has not getting your heart beat to the right level while excersing. Stick with it and keep your head up it will all come in due time and I understand the wait does sucks. Good luck

PS lack of sleep and stress def work against weight lose.

Activity & Exercise?
The 8 hours of desk work would include just your work day. It won’t be 100% accurate because I’m sure you stand and have to walk places etc. but it should be close. You’re at home sitting time is calculated under resting. Hope this helps

Wife is concerned
Congrats on the choice to eat better. It is a life changing decision. I also looked at your food diary and like previously said if you can make healthier choice you could eat just about all day! One thing I noticed and concerned me is your sodium intake we should only intake at most 2000mg sodium and if you look at yours it is almost double and that doesn’t count any hot sauce or salt you may be adding to your foods. Sodium holds onto water (weight) Sodium is very dangerous for your overall health especially if you are overweight. I didn’t realize how much sodium I indigested till I started using this site for a food diary and I don’t add extra salt to my food. I do like spicy food but I will now use cayenne pepper or red pepper flakes for spice. I am most certain with some web browsing on this site and different sites others have mentioned you can come up with a more satisfying meal plan for you and something your wife will see is providing you with enough nutrients. In fact making a choice to eat better is something that should be done by everyone weather weigh lose is needed or not . If not already your wife can eat the same healthy foods/meals as you and just adjust the amounts you eat by what your individual calorie intake should be. It will be easier kept if the eating habits are changed completely in the house. It won’t feel like just another diet and you won’t be as easily discourage or tempted by you only eating different. Don’t forget a good multi-vitamin also. The typical break down for you is 284 carbs, 153 proteins, 68g fat and 25gram of fiber and these are all the highest amounts you should ingest on at 1750 caloric intake. Of course this is only if you are not doing a plan like Atkins. There are a lot of calculators out there to help you figure what will work best for you. Remember everything in moderation. Keep up the hard work and don’t forget to exercise. Best of luck

How do I get rid of belly fat and what is the best equipment to use in the gym
I agree with all the above post but as IKeefer says you can lose weight and trim inches but if you have excess skin from weight lose there is NO exercise to get rid of old stretched out skin. I lost a good bit of weight a few years ago and still had a belly and my hubby just kept saying do sit-ups do sit-ups needless to say I got a tummy tuck and my hubby then realized it was skin not fat. I lost and 7" off my waist from surgery. A tummy tuck isn’t for losing weight and obviously that might not fit or even be practical but keep in mind nothing gets rid of skin. Good LUCK
