I am a bit nervous about weighing in tomorrow. I have been keeping up with the healthy eating and exercise, but after 4 straight weeks of a loss....

<b>Brandy</b> - are you eating enough? Even if you are eating healthy, if you aren't eating enough calories, and you are exercising as much as you do, you will gain weight.

I eat 5-6 times per day - about 2000 calories. Water - I think I am fine. Could drink more just water and cut out my 20 oz of pop a day.<br><br>
clothes - they are tight today. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> I'm frustrated

Are you using calorie count or daily plate to keep track of your calories? Here is a suggestion, I have tried it before, it does work. Change your calories for a day. Eat a bit more than usual, sometimes it will shock your system into losing again.

I'll try that Colleen and see what happens.<br><br>
I don't normally track each day, I'll track once a week and see how I am doing.

dunno. The lbs creeped up all week since Wednesday. I don't think I ate a ton of salt. I made some soup but with low sodium broth. Made some roasted veggies but with salt free mrs. dash stuff. Maybe I am getting it somewhere else. I don't eat a lot of frozen meals or anything.

I'm with Colleen, really shake up your diet for a day or two and also try something new workout wise (though you may have already) ...I like to do a circuit type of workout doing 10 or so weight and cardio type of exercises at a quick pace (like 1-2 minutes each) for a couple circuits.

<b>Brandy</b> Maria has an excellent idea. I just read about circuits being able to really shake up the system. I don't remember if it was Women's Health or Prevention.

I wonder if I already do this. During my breaks between sets, I'll do some other exercise that is normally somewhat cardio (crunches, russian twists, walking lunges, etc) no burpees for me...ever

<b>Brandy</b> Sounds like something is out of whack but you've gotten some good ideas re: things to try this week. I truly know how frustrating weight loss is.<br><br>
Overall I should be done this week. I've been really strict with the ww points - even had to eat separate meals than what my DH was eating (I asked him for extra support this week and he's been pretty good about everything). The scale just has not been moving much, if at all.<br><br>
Have not been running as much as usual. Have been doing aerobic and strength training. My DH laugs at me.....everytime I warm something in the microwave I do something - run in place, jump rope, boxing moves, etc. I just started this 2 weeks ago and do it at work too - they laugh, too. Anyway, at a minimum I get an extra 5 minutes of cardio each day!!!!

Uhhhhhhh, lemme know if you need any circuit help. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Down to 146.8 this morning, but my body fat is up b/c I lifted only once last week. I don't count toning classes as weightlifting... the weight is just far too low. Unfortunately, I'm subbing extra classes for the next 4-5 weeks for an instructor who just had a baby, so my lifting time will be limited.

I'm so motivated by this weekend's experience that I am going to start getting back into shape. You will see declining weight from me. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
That and the fact my face looks so @%$^@%$& fat in every picture from Birmingham this weekend.

i take your help as well! I need it obviously. I did that class again yesterday. The dance part was pretty cool but the barefootedness of it might be a little much for my PF feet. I also have blisters on my big toes. It was a good work out though and the bodyflow section was still challenging. I think I did better this go around. However, I am not sore. What is up with that?
