631359 tn?1222374022 I have lost some weight, but i am not losing anything at this point. I watch what I eat, i eat 5 times small meals, I am riding a bike 6 miles a day. I started out just walking but now i have started riding now. I also do weights a few times a week, 10 lbs weights doing 30 reps at a time upper arms and core. What am I doing wrong?

Avatar f tn I know that if I restrict my calories more, I would lose faster. But I have lost 40+ pounds twice before and am affraid of just losing more muscle. So like I said I am trying to be healthier and strong for the long haul.
Dog I have seen a nutritionist and she said that she does not know why I am not losing the weight. she also said that amytriptiline could be a possible cause. For past six weeks I am eating 1600 calories because my foot is hurting and i have got a tear in my hip. this has put an restriction on my activities. also i do not feel hungry but satiated with my food I forgot to mention that my height is 5'8". I am really frustrated with my weight. I never weighted this high.
Avatar n tn (people are saying maybe the weights are gaining muscle) I lose about 400 calories on the Skiing machine machine (to work both arms and lose weight), it says in about 35 minutes. sometimes I lose 500 in 42 minutes. Why am I not losing any weight? In fact I gained 3 lbs. Do I need to cut out weights completely? Do I need to go to the gym 5 days a week and do more cardio? I ate very few carbs for many years. I have just now started eating a few because evreyone says I should.
Avatar m tn I used to just eat protein bars but I am trying to incorperate some food into it like a turkey burger..etc. Problem is that I am not losing weight at all if anything its goin up a little everyday! I usually take in between 850-1000 calories a day. I was told that was the reason I didnt lose weight then I increased to 1200 and same thing!! I have never had this problem can some one PLEASE HELPPPP!!
Avatar n tn Try introducing a 6-8oz bottle of infant formula during the day. You can give the bottle to her after meals (3-4ozs after each meal). This will be in addition to her breastfeeding and her meals to see if she gains any weight.
Avatar f tn I am a 32 yrs old female, 5'4 beginning weight March 21, 2011 was 144.8. Current weight is 138.6. My goal weight is 125. I am very confused I have been eating btwn 1400-1500 calories daily. I drink btwn 96-140 oz of water daily. I ride my bike M-F for 30min. and M,W,F I do 3 reps of 20, pushups, crunches, squats, superman, (weights) arms extensions, back extensions, curls, and chest extensions.
Avatar f tn Hey, I don't know if you TLC channel but I do and I was watching a show about women being pregnant and the woman on there had lost weight as well. I am 16 wks pregnant and I have lost weight as well about ten pounds but I am about 5'10 and weight about 180 and I wasnt sick. But just cutting out the junk food really helps and its unessary food you and the baby don't need.
Avatar f tn I weighed myself this morning and the scale read 105.5 pounds! So, what is going on!? I should be losing weight but instead I am steadily gaining. I am so confused about what is happening right now and I am beyond frustrated. By the way, I highly doubt my weight gain is due to increased muscle mass. It takes females a lot longer than a few weeks to gain enough muscle to account for weight gain especially while on a calorie deficit. I would appreciate any insightful tips.
Avatar n tn t lose weight while i was nursing, i was the same way with my daugther. i stopped nursing in october, right around the time i went to a weight loss clinic to help with my diet and started seeing a nutritionist. i also work full time, i try to walk as much as possible. i walk during my 30 min lunch.
Avatar f tn I agree with grannieannie -- don't take phentermine while nursing........ in fact, I doubt seriously that you will even be able to find a reputable doctor who will prescribe it, since you are breastfeeding. You say you are counting calories, so I have to ask what types of food you are eating. You need to eat foods that take longest to break down in the body -- lean protein, high fiber. The longer it takes your food to be digested, the longer you will fell full.
Avatar n tn I'm not losing weight and I haven't the slightest idea why! I've been obsessing over my weight for idk how long. I have lost 50lbs on my own and that took a year (toooo slow). Then, back in September, I had my heart broken and gained about 10 of it back. I've been on this really hardcore diet and exercise for almost two weeks and haven't lost a single ounce! I'm 5'6 and weight about 280lbs!
Avatar f tn I quit drinking soda and other drinks and now only drink water, fat free milk, and an occasional gatorade. I eat less then I use too with minimal snacks. I have not lost any weight in a month. WHat am I doing wrong?
Avatar m tn I'm 24, 5'7", 204 lbs currently. I recently (since March) have lost 20 lbs through diet and exercise but it seems like I'm at a stand still, and in the last week I have actually gained a pound and a half even though my diet and exercise regimen has not changed.
