Not eating enough calories??
I am probably being prematurely concerned, but here goes.
I started training with my sister at the end of January. Since 2/4 I lost 8.8 pounds, brining me down to 161.4. Now my weight for the past several days has been slowly creeping back up, and I'm back up to 162.8 today. Argh!!
I weigh myself daily, because as we all know, weight can fluctuate, so I check my number in the mornings to just make sure that things are accurate on actual weigh-in days. If I see the same number twice in a row, THEN I record it.
But this is getting to be frustrating, and I'm wondering if maybe I'm not eating enough calories. MFP has me on 1200 cals a day, and I was told that as long as I don't go under that, my body won't hit starvation mode.
I work out between 1.5-2 hours a day. MWF I do zumba, then I train for 45 minutes with her with weights. Then Tues/Thurs/Sat I do a zumba class and run on the treadmill before or after.
I have been eating lower carb/lower fat diet, with a lot of protein (30-45% carbs, 19-30% fat, 35-40% protein).
My stomach doesn't seem to be going down much, although some people have mentioned I look smaller. I'm just getting frustrated here!! I was doing so well and was so encouraged, now this! grrrr....
