Ok so I am in need of some "HELP"!!
I started out my journey 306 lbs.I am now 230 lbs.After losing 76 lbs I am hitting my first PLATEAU!!
I have been at 230 lbs for WEEKS!
I keep pushing,and pushing..BUT NOTHING!
So after doing some research on the net I have changed up some things.
I read that turning your workout into 2 or more mini workouts keeps your metabolism BURNING longer..
So I now do 2 workouts.Which has INCREASED my fitness minutes by more than 100 minutes a week!
I now burn DOUBLE the calories that I was burning before(on a daily basis).
I have started Calorie Cycling..Learning more everyday about this..Hoping I have my calories right
I have UPPED my strength training.
I started power walking/JOGGING (sad that I will have to quit jogging,b/c of my knees..Oh and Dr. orders)
My Dr. suggested a new routine for me.He says my body is use to what I'm doing so I have to surprise it.Do something its NOT expecting.
So he wants me to do CARDIO for 1 entire week.
The next week do STRENGTH(Not weights all week).Weights 3 days,and the rest of the week toning/ things like Jillian,Biggest Loser...
Alternate those for 4 weeks.Then go back into my regular routine for 4 weeks.Then start ALL over again.
Which I have stuck with my regular routine this whole time.I mean I switch my workouts..BUT I still hit this plateau
If anyone has any suggestions..PLEASE HELP ME!!
I'm soo sick of feeling like a failure.I mean how in the H%LL can I lose 76 lbs. Then just
I mean I have not seen any results on that darn scale.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
God Bless my Spark Family,Christina
