Dropping my calories to like 16 or 1700 a day
I'm supposed to eat between like 1750 and 2150 (give or take a few cal.) and I have been doing it faithfully since I got in the group- I've tried lower end- higher end dropping below one day a week, staying in the middle...
I just realised (after looking at journal entries on sparkpeople) that I have managed to lose a grand total of 13 lbs since April.
I am a big girl - started at 239 and now at 211.5 I just don't get it. I keep adding more work out time and variety-including weights and pilates and belly dance and pulling weeds here and there (GIANT ones in the back) and it seems the more I add -the slower the weight loss.
I am beginning to wonder if there is some sort of health thing going on or WHAT
45 days ago I was 211.5- then I went back up a couple lbs...and FINALLY I'm back to it but not below...
would it be a bad ide to drop the calories about a hundred below BMR? I totalled over 1600 min of work out time last month...(a lot of it was zumba)
*EDITED TO ADD: I have only lost maybe 3-4 inches TOTAL since I started in mid Feb- havn't dropped any sizes yet that I can tell
