I mentioned that my trainer took my measurements last Wednesday. The results are:
my bodyfat has remained at 45% so he says we gotta work at my cardio and diet more, which I’ve just started being more strict on both for the past 2 weeks.
I lost an inch in my arms, 6 inches at my waist, 2.5 at my hip, and a half inch in my legs.
This shows that my body is responding to the exercise but is withholding body fat.
Monday my trainer wants to go over my sleep schedule, how often I’m eating and what medications I’m on.
I’m surprised that my body is holding on to body fat, I wonder if that has something to do with why I am losing weight slowly compared to what I’m eating and exercising. I’ve only lost 2 pounds since last week and I feel like with the deficit in my diet and exercise it should be more. I’ve dropped my calories really low, to about 1300 a day. I won’t keep it this low but I felt it was necessary to push through this plateau and it is working, I’m losing, just slowly. But that’s better than gaining weight which is what I was doing up to 2 weeks ago.
It takes 21 days to form a habit and i’m at Day 14, hopefully I will lose some fat in the upcoming weeks.
Have any of you had trouble losing fat? What did you do to overcome it?
