I haven't lost anything.

Recommended Posts

I am starting week 4 of the program tomorrow, and I have been completing the weeks like I should, and I have not lost anything. Not even a single ounce! Did anyone else have this problem? I am also using weights, so I guess it is possible I am gaining muscle, but it is very frustrating! I have been using MFP to count calories as well.

I was disappointed as well (5 weeks - only 5# lost). But now I understand that food intake should be managed too. I am only 10# down after completing C25K. And truthfully I could do better job watching my diet. I cannot call it a diet, I continue to eat the same food, but my portions should be smaller, sweets should be gone (I am working on it :D ) and definetly I should drink more water and do more strength exercises...

 

I think gaining of muscles, changing you life style slowly will pay off. Fast weight lost means only fast gain in the future. It is my believes now!

Hi THere to you both,

 

It DOES have to do with what you eat too!   Make sure you look at your food intake, beer, wine???  I HATE counting calories but some do.  

 

Gaining muscle will add weight too, but the GOOD kind,.   Are your clothes loose??  

 

Keep me posted, GOOD LUCK!

I am not a calorie counter per se, I am a WW member and I am jsut starting the C25K program but have been working out since December and while I am only down 12lbs by the scale, I am down 2 pant sizes(from a snug 18W to a snug 14 regular) and many inches around my waist and hips.  The scale is not always the best measurement, try measuring or taking progress pictures wearing the same clothes.  Also, make sure you are eating enough!  Sometimes people exercise and cut back calories and with increased exercise, you need to fuel the body, just make better fuel choices!  :)
