I haven't been getting anywhere, making no progress whatsoever. I eat healthy, track all my food, exercise, yadda yadda yadda... lol I thought, "Well maybe my activity is set too high" so I set it to Sedentary and log workouts. But according to my math it STILL doesn't add up right. Lemme show ya what I mean! These are the stats for the past 2 weeks: Total Calories Eaten:
18,452 (1,318/day) Extra Calories Burned through exercise:
1,770 Daily living calories:
19,600 (1,400/day) TOTAL calories burned:
This should mean in 2 weeks my deficit shoulda been 2,912.. or about 3/4 pounds. But I ain't seein' none of that. If it turned out that between my lazy living expenditure and my exercise, what I was eating only maintained my weight, that means I would only be burning 1,200 on an average day without exercise. (1,200 x 14 + 1,770 / 14). And even though I'm only 5'1", that seems AWFULLY low. When I was working I lost 1/2 pound every week eating 1,500.. without exercise. My job kept me on my feet all day, so since then my activity has drastically decreased, so to compensate I try to go to the gym more.
And no, there are no changes in body measurements.
Any suggestions for a frustrated and desperate female?
