Hi guys, I'm in need of some advice.
I'm trying to lose 19kg and it doesn't seem to want to go anywhere For a month now I have been going to the gym 6 days a week and eating very healthy (I'm a vegan so there's a lot of things I don't eat anymore that I used to), as in, all fruits/vegetables and some grains/nuts etc. I don't eat anything bad at all!! And I work really hard at the gym. The problem is the scales won't budge.
I'm so frustrated cos I used to do all this before and ended up a size 6 which I maintained for a few years before falling pregnant and other health issues which resulted in me not going to the gym for months an stacking on the weight.
I'm wondering if there could be some underlying issue as to why it won't budge? Like a thyroid problem or something. I'm thinking if I don't start losing weight after another month I'll go to the doctor. I feel like I've lost a bit of weight but the scales don't reflect it, I know I might have gained muscle which weighs more than fat but I really need to lose this 19kg as it makes me a little overweight. I also know a healthy rate of weight loss is 0.5-1kg a week but I'm not even getting that. Am I just being too impatient?
