Little info, im 5'8" 180lbs. I use to weigh 235lbs (fat) 8months ago. Well i started eating right and exercising a lot. (weight training and jogging) Well i have felt like i have been stuck at 180 for like 3 months. I know im gaining a lot of muscle mass and losing weight a little cause my pants and clothes are fitting looser. But i wanna get the weight down. I use to jog 30mins a day sometimes 3-5 times a week. And weight train for about an hour 3 times a week. I dunno if i cut my calories too low for the amount of exercise i was doing.
I don't keep track of the calories i eat, but i know im well below 2000, and try to eat every few hours to keep my body digesting. Recently about 2 weeks ago i stopped running and stopped weight lifting and continued to eat normally, sometimes eating junk food andfast food what what not. My weight has not increased nor decreased. Im wondering if since ive stopped working out for 2 weeks that restarting as hard as i was will jump start my body or (shock it) if you will. Thats how i believe i lost most of my weight before, from going from no exercise to a lot.
So yeah thats my quest. I have been doing the same weight training sets/reps of the diff exercises i do for the last 4 months prior. And usually every day i jogged i tried to push myself a little farther each time. So will this 2 week break be enough to shock my body from noting working out? Cause i think it was getting use to what i was doing, or i was not getting enough calories. But i think at the beginning cutting my calories pretty low helped me lose a lot of this weight. Anyways, thanks..
