Well, its been a week since I hit 205 and I’m still at 205. I’ve been eating well, tracking everything, calories 1300 or under, carbs 20 or under. Only eating real food. I’m sticking to the 65% fat, 30% protein, 5% carbs ratio and measuring fairly well to be accurate.
It’s like my body just does not want to be under 200 and refuses to let go. There was one day where I went down to 201.8 and the next day and ever since it jumped back to 205.
I’ve upped my water and even tried upping my calories yesterday to almost 1400 (they had been closer to 1000) and it still didnt make a dent. Maybe to lose weight at a decent pace (2 pounds a week) I need to cut my calories to closer to 800. I’m quite frustrated.
After a 21 pound loss now I’m just stuck. I’m not going to give up, I just need to figure out what is wrong. I was losing weight more consistently with a low calorie/low fat diet… and getting to eat fruit! I’m going to stick with this for a couple more weeks and see how it goes.
Any suggestions appreciated.
