Not losing weight? Topic
I?ve been meticulously counting calories and getting some sort of exercise in regularly. I?ve been eating at or below the limit the app sets, except one day in 3-4 weeks I was over for my birthday. I lost 3 pounds and then quickly gained it back. What?s going on? I don?t know if I can eat even less calories.
Thanks for reaching out. It sounds like you are frustrated. Please keep tracking. I bet you will see weight loss occurring again. You mention that you are exercising. I would definitely maximize it. Experts have found that most people need to get 60 min most days of the week for weight loss.
Also, you may want to take body measurements and monitor progress with inches lost along with the pounds.
