Report Weight loss? in Start Here! Posted October 10, 2015 So far, I've lost about 8 lbs in 5 weeks. I'm not following any sort of prescribed diet beyond just making sure I'm taking in less calories than I'm burning, getting enough protein/calories/fat per day, and working out (weight lifting/running) when I can. It has been rather busy this month getting ready to move several states away, so it has put a damper on my work out schedule. My trouble now is that I have stopped losing weight almost entirely this past week. I'm assuming I need to increase my activity because pushing my caloric deficit any further would not be healthy.
