    when ytou start to lose weight it comes off a lot at first, then slowly the weight loss starts to decrease and you will find it harder to lose weight. But keep persevering, it will come off and maybe increase your running or join a gym.,

    good luck!!

    I know it slows down but it seems to have just stopped! Am i worrying too … I know it slows down but it seems to have just stopped! Am i worrying too much? so just see what happens next month before i step up the exercise regime maybe?



    Exactly as you say. Step it up. Review your diet etc.

    how many calories do you eat mayne?


    it could also be that you gained muscle and lost fat which mean you weight has not changed that much.


    s it because I started running?


    the running may have caused you to grow more muscle in your legs. Giving the illusion that you have not lost weight.

    I always say the mirror is the best place to look for fat loss, not the scales.


    do you take ECA brah? if so how long you on it.

    don't see why you would not be losing fat if your @ 14stone, if anything I would say your under eating, looks like your getting 2300cals tops.

    Keep @ it for another month and i'm sure it will go down, could be many factors why you only apparently lost "1lb". such as muscle gained, or your body was storing alot of water during the weigh in..:thumbsup:


    from what you told me I would have to say that you have certainly lost more then 1 lb in that month.

    No i used to years ago when i wanted to lose weight for my wedding but … No i used to years ago when i wanted to lose weight for my wedding but stopped that now.(good question though, you have a fantastic memory brah!)


    im stalking brah. I was just wondering because I know some people who ran a ECA for a year+, and now have alot of heart problems, just making sure you not being reckless.

    Try light weights too for a little muscle tone.
    Don't lift heavy weights though, for the time being anyway.

    I'm actually gonna agree with BG1 here, the scales may not be a true indication of weight loss.

    Get yourself a tape measure, measure round the tops of your arms, legs, waist etc.

    Then next month when you weigh/measure you'll know that your losing more weight than you think you are.

    What sort of weight is light weights do you mean a bar or dumbells and … What sort of weight is light weights do you mean a bar or dumbells and what sort of reps?


    best to go to a gym, lift heavy or go home.

    Take a big poo and then re-weigh yourself.

    mtb?

    too hungover to google.

    mountain biking?

    mate it doesnt matter what you weigh, its what you look like and how your clothes fit.

    without reading any of the other responses, I'd have thought its because you are gaining muscle..

    I pretty much answered a similar question to yours on the gym thread so will repost the response at the end of this post. I've briefly read through this thread but in a very quick nutshell change your routine, add more sprints and less runs, include a periodised strength training routine including all the major compound lifts, don't workout for 2 hours, lift heavy as BG1 mentioned, sleep good, eat right and all will be good! Kermit, what are you talking about? Would be interested to hear your explanation....

    I left the following response for someone chatting about weight loss and weighing:-
    I don't know your training goals / stats or routine but I've seen your looking to loose weight. My advise is do not weight yourself everyday. I think even weightwatchers has a weekly weight-in but even this can be too many for some. Weight can vary on a daily basis, even if you are on the right track - continued weighing will make you a slave to the scales and you will only see your weight as your success / failure.

    Look at it this way and this will hopefully give you something to think about. My question to you is this - What if after 4 to 6 months of training, you had increased your strength and stamina, improved your cardiovascular fitness, lost your excess body fat, looked 'toned' and 'defined', had improved your energy levels and gained a physic that you truly was proud of (able to confidently flaunt on that beach holiday). I'm guessing these goals, but if you had achieved all this, would it still matter what the scales said?

    Thats why when I train clients, if their main goal is weight loss or aesthetics, as soon as they realise the benefits for training for health (Strength) and we set about achieving this, the weight drops off.
