Hi there! Short-time lurker here, about to embark on W5R3 (shudder) tomorrow.
I'm exercising to build up fitness levels and lose weight before starting uni in September - I started at 94kg in October (having come down from 120kg a few years ago), and got to about 81.5kg before starting C25K 5 weeks ago. I've been maintaining a 1200-1400 calorie diet, and cycle ~8 miles (including a nasty half-mile hill) 4x a week on top of running.
The thing is, I haven't seen any weight loss since starting C25K, and I'm seriously freaking out. I'm exercising even more than before, and still maintaining a calorie deficit. Yes, I've lost a few inches, but... my BMI is still as unhealthy as it was before, and I'm no closer to reaching my ideal weight. I feel a little devastated, to be perfectly honest.
Has anyone else experienced this before, or does anyone have any advice? I'd very much appreciate anything anyone has to say. I've got an appointment with my GP next week for something unrelated, but I'm thinking of bringing this issue up too...?
Thanks + sorry for the long post!
