I absolutely can not lose weight. I am at a total loss as to why. I have been working out at the gym daily for two weeks, twice-daily 3 times a week. I use the treadmill, elliptical, weight machines, ab roller and medicine ball. "Short" work-outs are 60 minutes long, a standard work-out is 90 minutes long. I cover anywhere from 3 to 5 miles during a single gym session.
I thought perhaps it was my caloric intake, so I began charting my food last week. I average around 1900 calories per day, which I know is a little high for optimal weight-loss, as this is the base amount I would consume to maintain my weight if I wasn't working out at the gym, but I would still expect to lose around 1 lb per week, based on calories burned during my gym sessions. I've had no such luck. In fact, I gained a pound. GAINED.
I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any advice? I'm going to try to better control the number of calories I consume from tomorrow onward, since I'm currently on-track to consume 1900 calories today unless I skip dinner, but lord, I get so damn hungry! I can only imagine how bad it will be when I drop to 1600 calories per day.
If anyone has any tips, I'm open.
"Roger that. Over."
