I am 17 weeks out and having a very hard time, much harder that it has been. I have lost 58 lbs so far. But I haven't lost anything in weeks. I go up 2 lbs and down 3 then back up. I'm getting frustrated mostly because I am sticking to my doctors orders/plan. But it isn't working, that I can see. It really makes me want to eat what I want. But then in my mind I can hear some of the "vets" here and I think they would tell me to suck it up and work harder..... With that being said, i am still disappointed and frustrated with myself and my body.
It depends, I might tell you to work harder or I might tell you to work smarter. How many weeks haven't you lost anything and what is your doctor's plan? It is either a stall or you have reached maintenance. I would need more info to offer help.
I have lost 2 lbs since October 28th. Doctor says 60 g of protein and 64 oz of water daily. I also am walking about 2 miles per day. It's been harder since getting colder here in Ohio. I pray I haven't met maintenance. I still have about 40lbs to go! How do you know when your body is done?
Lower your carbs, 60 is closer to maintenance levels. You will also need those calories for the increased protein you are about to eat. Journal everything and drink like a fish. See if you can keep your calories around 700, 600 is even better, but 700 will work. PM me if you need to figure it out. This has worked for countless people and it will work for you too.
