    Weight loss has slowed

    Hello all,

    For the past several months, I have been on a (strict as possible) diet and exercise routine. During the week I have no/very little: sugar, cheese, fatty foods/grease, etc. while walking on average between 16-23mi a week. I also kill about 4-6 cups of ZipFizz/water a day. Doing this, I have successfully gone from 345 to 286.

    My current issue is I believe I have hit a "plateau" so to speak - I am not losing as much weight at once as I have been.

    Is there anything I can do differently/add onto in regards to my routine that would help? For example, I walk once while at work (the bulk of it) and two more shorter times in the evening. Would it make any difference if I walked more during the day but did near the same amount of distance traveled? I recently dislocated my shoulder, so I can't do weights yet.

    Any and all help is appreciated. Thank you.

    Consume a balanced diet strategy is not a “diet plan” however merely an encouraging technique of consuming.


    Your meals should be consisted of…

    – lean protein

    – complex carbs

    – veggies

    – healthy fats

    Consist of some parts of fresh fruit every day and clean all of it down with lots of water.

    Many diet plans have you eliminate among the high products. Low carbohydrate diet strategies have you eat mainly protein and fat.

    Short-term declines in carbohydrate consumption or carbohydrate cycling can be helpful for fast weight loss. Lots of diet plan strategies notify you to cut carbs to very low levels for extended periods.

    Carbohydrates offer energy for your brain, workout, and all other activities.

    Carbs play a considerable role in muscle maintenance. Maintaining or consisting of brand-new muscle is required for long-lasting, safe weight loss.

    it is definately frustrating when you hit a plateau, I found that you need to change intensity of exercise, try something different. Congrats to you , you have lost a significant amount of weight, your calorie needs have changed significantly as well. Have you reduced your calorie intake as well? Also when I did weight watchers I found that even when I ate the amount of food I was allowed, even if it was within my points allowance, for ex. a burger or fries from McDonalds, I did not lose anything..even if I stayed within my allowed amounts. I hope that makes sense. Whatever you do, don't allow your frustration to make you give up...Keep at it...it takes time and you have done a great job!!!!

    Hi there,
    Your progress, thus far, is amazing! I admire your dedication!
    Maybe you need to back off for a bit? It sounds like your body may be used to the "new normal". Ease up a bit on the walking, but throw in cycling (I ride a stationary bike while I watch the news or an evening show), or water aerobics- something your muscles aren't used to. Also, for a couple of weeks, add in a few extra carbs, or a few more calories worth of protein if the carbs are kind of scary right now. Whatever you decide- I think changing things up a bit might be a good way to break the plateau. Good Luck to you!!

    I am going through a similar problem, i was 18 stone but after several months of dieting and walking 50-60 miles per week i seem to be stuck at just under 16 stone, i am very happy that i lost 2 stone but don't understand why i have been stuck for the last 4 months.

    I already lost some weight. Since i am having alot stress on many purpose it is kind of difficult to me. I am keep doing it and I will continue it untill i will reach my goal. Drinking panty of water may be 12 glasses of water and planty of rest meaning 8 hours sleep each day, no stress, always try to make your mind refreash, and very important exercise which i always avoid. But now i determine that i will do exercises in home everyday if possible. Wishing you good luck.

    Great job! You should be very proud of yourself.

    Having been my own "Weight Watcher" for 40 years, I've learned that when I diet and hit a plateau the thing that works for me is to take a day or two off and eat more. Your body just adjusts to what you have been doing and you have to shake things up.

    You can change your exercise or the pattern. Recently I've started interval training on the treadmill (you don't need a treadmill). It's been very helpful.

    Good luck!

        Seems we have similar ideas, i started to eat a little differently and more the last 2 days and will continue for a week and see what happens. At 67 i love to walk and do lots of it, but i also do a few exercises at home(exercise bike, rowing machine, weights etc.), so i decided to give all but the walking a rest for a week as well.

    RE: Weight loss has slowed

    Congratulations on your 59 lb. loss. When I was 37 I went from 300 to 160, it took a little over a year and plateaus happen. A nice chunk came off at first, then I hit a plateau and ugh. I didn't give up. I walked 5-days a week for 40 minute each time, just keeping in motion, no speed. I think plateaus happen because your skin needs time to tighten up. Keep on keeping on and celebrate the ounces that turn into pounds. Make sure you are not sabotaging yourself on the weekends.
