I need some advice/help. Back in the end of May I found out that my weight had gone past the 500 pound mark. Needless to say reality smacked me in the face.
So, I began a journey to reduce my weight and live a healthy lifestyle. So far I have lost about 82 pounds, but the last few weeks my weightloss has completely stalled. Thats around the time I began exercising everyday.
I just dont know what to do. I am so afraid I will get discouraged if this last much longer and I dont want to give this up.
Here are some details:
I eat between 1200-1300 calories a day and I log everything I eat on myfitnesspal.com
Three weeks ago I began walking the 1/2 mile to and from work everyday and then I also hit the treadmill everyday and walk at a 3 mile per hour pace with random incline intervals for about 40 minutes.
Some medical concerns are:
I am being treated for an underactive thyroid and Atrial Fib.
I feel like I have been working so hard. I have worked my body and stayed on point with my calorie/food intake and its devestating to be stuck.
