Still stalled - help
 
Stalled on weight loss

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi Everyone
I love the clinic I go to in Johnston, RI
They are quite caring ... in fact, I drive 20 miles further than a closer clinic to come to this one.

I've been on Medi Weightloss before and lost quite a bit.
Life happens (smile) and finally came back after a few years.
Basically mentioning this so I can demostrate I "know the drill" about the program. Smile

My question is:
I'm perplexed. I was losing weight at a reasonable rate then basically - nothing.
I'm following the program PERFECTLY - no joke - my hubby laughs at how rigorously I'm weighing food, logging, etc.
I'm drinking 110 oz of water minimum
I'm faithfully taking all the pills at set times
I'm going to the gym and using the treadmill (and adding the protein calories per calories burned as instructed: example burn 300 calories on treadmill, eat 100-150 more calores in protein)
I haven't "cheated" at all
yet - boom - I'm "stalled"

I am patient - but of course, as many of you know on this program ... there's a significant cost and I'm campaigning to my hubby to keep on it ... which is easier to win if I was actually losing at least a pound (big smile)

THOUGHTS?
I was told today (I go in a 2nd time during the week to get the extra shots)
maybe I need to mix up my menu.
Hmmm

I need some encouragement and suggestions from the folks on the diet.
Bless the staff - but most of them have never been on the diet and it's all "theory"

Hugs,
Pat

every time i had weeks where i didnt lose as much as usual my clinic told me to cut down the amount of cheese i was eating. not sure if that applies to you though. also, it seems to vary by clinic, but mine said not to replace calories burned during exercise. my protein calories were set at 500-700 and they said to eat on the upper end of that when i exercise but not to go over.

Can you list exactly what you are eating and exactly how much. For how long have you been stalled?

I found this web site called my fitness pal which is great at helping me log my meals,y ou can even download an app that will scan in the item you are eating if it has a bar code! I have been using it to track everything for the last 5 days, and was surprised how many carbs and sugars add up when I weighted and measured my salad. I actually got above 50 carbs one day, mostly because I had the medi shake, greek yogurt and a salad with onions in it.

Try it, maybe it is carbs, or some people retain water, the app helps track sodium also

Good luck

Exercise Calories
 
I agree with Jessica, maybe see what happens if you don't eat back the calories you burned during exercise for a few days before your next weigh in. There's the continuing debate if the "calories burned" readout on exercise/cardio machines is accurate.
