Nine months after having a second child I am now at 195 lbs (mostly due to high stress eating and a new desk job). One month ago I made a decision to get back into shape (my normal weight is about 135-140 and I'm 5' 4'' and 24 years old). I'm eating around 1200 calories a day (mostly protein, some carbs, and trying to get in more fruits and veggies). I cut out all soda and drink 2-3 liters of water a day. I exercise for an hour a day, 6 days a week. 2 days are a full body weight lifting class and 4 days are cardio, keeping at about 140-145 BPM.
I know I could have an even better diet but I'm trying to make reasonable changes to my diet that will last (no fads or starving). Yet even with a diet that's probably half the calories and crap as before and exercising more then I've ever done... one month later, I haven't lost one pound! I gained 2 pounds during the second week and then lost them. What am I doing wrong?
