Weight Loss Stalled! WHY? / grr cant get outta plateau
« on: February 15, 2014, 03:39:18 PM »
i got back on the band wagon after falling off in june after my hysterectomy. i gained 17 lbs after that, my hormones went nuts, and it was really all i could do not to kill people...much less try to eat healthy enough to lose
not i'm on hormone replacement, feel 100 times better and hav dropped 36 lbs since dec 6th. but now i'm stuck!!! i know i am in ketosis as i test daily with test strips, but i havent budged a lb in about 1.5 weeks. i have a goal of losing at least 65 lbs by may....what can i do to get outta this stupid plateau??? i'm going to the gym 3-4 days a week, lifting weights and doing plenty to exercise.....i eat under 20 carbs daily, and under 1000 calories daily...what am i doing wrong?

O my Lord! I am drooling just reading the recipe! I can't wait to try it! I could hug your neck umpa!

Lol,I haven't seen the fudge recipe yet umpa....I'll look for it when I get home. I'm so excited! I've dropped 8 lbs this week! Doing the happy dance! And it's even the week before my cycle!
I have indulged in sugar free honey and peanut butter all favorite! Haven't really even craved anything sweet to speak of, so I'm very happy!
72 more pounds to go! Yes!!!!

Hello again. I fell off the wagon I'm kicking myself...all my family wanted fudge, so I made it, problem was I had gotten busy today, didn't take time to eat and when we got home I made the stupid fudge...and of course...I ate some. Really really ticks me off that I have no more will power! I'm thinking about going to the gym again instead of taking a break today. I'm feeling like a fat cow!
As for when I do go to the gym,I try to go every other day to give the muscles time to heal, but I over did it Tuesday which made me feel crappy Wednesday, top that off with the fact I haven't slept good in 3 nights...I'm totally tired today. I know my 1.5 yr old is secretly trying to kill me with lack of sleep..Lol.
I do try to drink alot of water, esp when working out, but guess it's not enough. I'll increase my water...sorry for the ramble and the vent....just tired and grumpy:)
Hope everyone has a great weekend ....o yea I was wondering does anyone else have weird cravings? I constantly crave peanut butter..I mean like it wakes me up in the middle of the night...I could eat peanut butter all the time!

thankyou for such a warm welcome...i am pleasantly surprised i actually refound the forum i posted was surprised to learn today that even though i have gained 5 lbs, i have lost an inch off my waist and 1/2 inch off my thighs...woohoooo....i'm feeling hot today... :o
i also have discovered today that i musta worked out way to hard tuesday as yesterday my entire body hurt, i stayed nauseated all day, and this morning i cant straighten out my right leg due to the fact my calf muscle is in a complete state of contraction. really weird.....but i am heading back to the gym tonight...maybe a warm up will relax it. gonna go browse the recipe section awhile.....oo i just read about the eating low carb at burger can eat lc at mcdonalds as well;-) i order 2 mcdoubles, feed the buns to the birds and eat the cheese n fills me waaaayyyyy up.
thanka again for the warm welcome...i talk alot so please forgive me..... 


hi, my name is Angela...i am new to fts....i am a carb lover...sigh. however i have decided to lose 80 lbs. i had our last child 1.5 yrs ago...#7...and i'm never having anymore..thank i have started going to the gym and doing cardio and weight lifting 3/4 days a week. however i read that you shouldnt do a low carb diet/lifestyle while weightlifting , it would make you lose lean muscle, and you wouldnt have enough energy to workout.
could this be true? i have been trying to do a low carb version  of my own but apparently its now low enough as i'm not losing anything. i have been going to the gym for a month and actually gained 5 lbs...grrr!!!
i am 40 yrs old, in menapause, have adrenal insufficiency and have to take steroids daily to stay alive......i need support, easy, fast recipes as i  hate to cook, and i'd like to make friends with others who are low carbing,,my daughter and i both are as she has the age of 19:(
thanks so much for my vent.....i cant wait to lose my fat self and find my skinny self as i have never been skinny... :D
o and i am hoping to be able to find any responses to this post
