So it’s a moment of realisation.... I’m at the end of week 6 tmrw of the 12wk plan and my average cals every week are roughly 1400cals, or slightly lower. My nhs BMI calculated range is 1350-1750ish. On an typical wk I’m very diligent during the weekdays, saving my cals for socialising on weekends (though I’ll skip starters/puds etc) .
I’ve tried to exercise for 30mins every weekday morning, usually fairly intensely (heavy weights, boxing with light weights, circuits, etc) and have managed it pretty much most days. I tried to manage a wknd run but weather or tiredness or my tots have scuppered plans (wasn’t much resistance-lol
I had 2-3wks of good weight loss at the start and nothing for 3wks...I’d now beat myself up that I should be exercising more/eating less.....and then usually will have given up. Generally the diet is ok, but my wknd splurge can be a bit unruly on odd occasion.
Should I be doing more or do you think carrying on as I am will actually get the weight loss going again? I’m suddenly starting to wonder....is the plateau because it would happen anyway or because I need to try harder?
Any advice / thoughts appreciated!
