I've been doing this over a month and I've already begun to feel stronger, but I'm still flabby in places and the scale hasn't really budged (outside of up 2lbs and then back.) in 3 weeks! This is really starting to discourage me in my weight loss. What can I do to get over this slump and get my weight loss moving again? I'm currently doing Cardio Sculpt and maintaining a 1200 -1300 calorie diet (not always the best calorie choices though.) Any advice would be appreciated.
I just don't get it. I'm on week 2 of cardio sculpt, I've done Move! for a week and completed the db15 program. I'm not on ignite, but I've been maintaining a good blend of healthy calories and only a max of 1200 a day. I seem to be bouncing back and forth by 4-5 pounds; I lose one I gain back 4, I lose 6 and I gain back 7. What am I doing wrong?????
I hurt my lower abdominal (just the bottom 2) doing DB15 inferno, and it has been so sore and swollen for the past week that I'm having trouble sleeping, I have no apatite and pain when using the bathroom. I don't want to take a bunch of pills if it's not necessary so I need some advice on what I can do to recover as quickly as possible.
Actually that helps a lot. Maybe not so many healthy carbs in my diet, so I'm going to try upping those. I consume a great deal of protein and salads so I'm going to try switching things up a bit.
I've been doing a couple of weeks on intelliburn, after finishing Cardio Sculpt and for some reason the last few days I've been insanely hungry!!!! I really don't want to blow my diet or mess up my progress so far (yay! 23lbs down!), but I just seem to be unsatisfied within a few hours of putting anything in my body. Is this just a sign that my metabolism is now hard at work, or is it just something I should ignore?
Also if anyone can advise me on foods that are filling but low calorie I would appreciate it.
Yipiee! 6 lbs away from my half way point! Feeling tougher, stronger, and sexier!
I found that when starting out without shoes some of the workouts (especially ones with a great deal of jumping) would hurt the arches, but after a few times it built resistance.
Feeling tough and strong today!
I never really thought of that. It's possible that some things I eat are high in Sodium. I'll give it a try. Thanks!
cool! that might be worth a try!
Thanks! I have been measuring and I'm down an inch and a half. I'll try to change things up as well.
Thanks! I wondered if I was sabotaging myself with the crappy calorie choices.
hmm that's a good idea! It's not the best scale either (old and crappy and accuracy is questionable) I've tried increasing my protein consumption a bit (I'm always craving meat) and hopefully the good extra calories I'm eating will help. Thanks for your advice!
I wondered if it might have been muscle weight I was gaining. It's good to know I'm not alone in this struggle. Thanks!
