I'm perplexed. And this is probably the reason why I'm going to the specialist soon...
Yesterday, a typical diet day with extra exercise.
Burnt nearly 900 calories with the 3 lots of exercise that I did.
Ate 1200 low-gi calories. Wasn't hungry.
Put on 200g.
This might be the reason I've become a little disheartened and no one can tell me why.
Try and weight yourself everyday for a couple of days to see if that shift.
If it's a true gain then yes maybe up your cal intake a little.
Finally there have been studies that show that calories aren't equal depending on where they came from and when you ate them.
People eating exactly the same stuff but at different times had different results.
so better to have most your daily calories at breakfast, a good lunch and a light super.
I've played with the calories and upped them for a while (couple months) - that's how I put on the 2kg and haven't had a true loss in so long. I was wondering if my body was in famine mode but giving it extra didn't seem to affect it...except to put on weight. My body stopped losing a decent amount of weight about 6 months ago and was just letting it go very very slowly after that.
If the specialist isn't able to help by balancing my hormones I'm thinking I'll also try a sports physiologist/weightloss dietician. I'm determined to shift it all.
Will weigh over the next few days and it better come down!
This thread was the push I needed. I have just reactivated my weight watchers account.
DD turned 2 yesterday, so can't really blame the baby weight anymore. Though actually I am back at my pre-baby weight, it is the 9 cycles of IVF weight that won't budge. I think I put on a kg each cycle, so I would really like to lose about 10kg. Let's see how I go.
For those that do online tracking, what do you do with your activity points?
I just noticed that there are different ways of swapping them?
I don't really get it. I usually let them sit there and they disappear each Thursday when my pro-points start again.
Pregnant for the first-time?
