HELP! The last sticky 20-30 pounds...
Hi all, I'm trying to lose those last 30 pounds. So far I've lost 2 lbs in 2 weeks. I can see a difference in my clothes, I feel alot skinnier but haven't seen a whole lot of movement on the scale.
I'm pretty much eating like a caveman, clean protein with every meal, salad or stir fry. I have had a glass of wine on Friday night and 2 scotch's on Sunday. Because I'm not seeing a bigger loss I'm going to cut out all alcohol.
My fitness routine is Mondays 1 hr vinyasa flow yoga, Tuesdays 1 hr kick box class, tonight (Tues) I'll go to the gym for an hour of cardio & 1/2 weights, Thursday 1 hr HIIT class, Friday gym (1 hr cardio, 1/2 hr weights, 1 hr yoga) Sunday gym cardio, weights but no yoga.
I thought it'd just be alot quicker to lose this weight since I've dumped the carbs and am exercising so much. Usually I see lots of movement on the scale in the first few weeks when I lose the carbs from shedding the water weight. Not this time!
I drink water and herbal tea all day and make a pot before bed.
A typical day: breaky 3/4 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 grapefruit, 1 coffee and a tea later on. Lunch 2 chicken drumsticks and 1 cup of kale/mushroom/onion/bell pepper stir fry, more tea Dinner: fish & asian salad. SF jello with protein if I'm still hungry closer to bed time and at least a pot of tea. (average day is 1000-1200 calories). Green tea after lunch, mint/cinnamon/ginger in the late afternoon and before bed.
Any suggestions people? Anything else you would think could help? Thanks in advance.
