Im trying to lose about 10 lbs and although I think im doing all the right things, that number just doesn’t seem to be moving. Any ideas of what to do?June 12, 2014 11:49 pm at 11:49 pm #1019939
did you already start losing and then stop? that could be A) because that’s the right weight for you or B) while you aren’t losing pounds, you are losing inches. you might want to check that out.June 13, 2014 12:04 am at 12:04 am #1019940

Drink water. Don’t drink soda or juice. You’ll lose 5 lbs in your first weekJune 13, 2014 2:28 am at 2:28 am #1019942
He already did that and didn’t lose the weight, according to the post.June 13, 2014 3:16 am at 3:16 am #1019943
I did start losing but now I stopped and yeh I am losing inches. But its so frustrating because I exercise, eat right, only drink water etc. It could be that it is the right weight for me but my goal is to get to the lowest weight possible for my height. And for that I need to lose another 10 lbsJune 13, 2014 5:51 pm at 5:51 pm #1019944
ask a dietician. go for walks don’t drink calories and consult a doctor if that “lowest weight for height ” is healthy for youJune 13, 2014 7:05 pm at 7:05 pm #1019945
Thanks @to be or not to be. I am seeing a nutritionist but I guess im not expecting such slow results.June 15, 2014 2:10 pm at 2:10 pm #1019946SaysMeMember
why is that your goal, to be at the lowest weight for your height?
Different people are built differently. If you are any bit broad, or muscular, or just ”heavy-boned”, you shouldnt be at that lowest weight anyhow. A number on a scale is not a great goal in and of itself.
Assuming your weight loss goal IS healthy and dr approved, losing inches instead of numbers is a good thing. Keep in mind too that muscle weighs more than fatJune 15, 2014 11:53 pm at 11:53 pm #1019947
Also remember that the goal should also be to gain better eating habits and a more active lifestyle in order to keep your weight down. slow and steady is generally better then quick, drastic drops in which the body is thrown off it’s equilibrium and the metabolism is slowed down leading the body to use muscle instead of fatJune 16, 2014 12:17 am at 12:17 am #1019948
I was always in shape. round is a shape, no?June 16, 2014 12:37 am at 12:37 am #1019949
Thanks guys. The thing is that I do have very good eating habits (in fact, I dont eat any junk, cake etc.)and I work out alot. Even so, its taking forever for me to see a difference.June 16, 2014 2:52 am at 2:52 am #1019950
Remember difference could be in inches as well, more toned etc. For all it’s worth, when I reached a plateau I was also worried and then after continuing for another few weeks the pounds just started sliding off again. no explanation. plus, BMI is a very imperfect statistic as a personal trainer who weighs a lot due to muscle can be considered obese if you check his BMI, but in reality, he is very healthyJune 17, 2014 8:05 pm at 8:05 pm #10199512NI3Participant
make sure you not trying to reach a number that is not possible. also keep in mind that increasing your water is a great way to end a plateauJune 17, 2014 10:41 pm at 10:41 pm #1019952
