Frustrated and bummed about lack of scale movement : loseit
hello everybody! i have been lurking in this sub for some time now, however handiest lately were given my butt into equipment. i am 29F, four’11 (yep. brief.), and seeking to lose about 10 lbs. i lately took some “before” footage via putting in a self timer, and previous to this i by no means were given a just right have a look at my again view. OMG, it used to be dangerous. i’ve again rolls!! i knew i had let myself move, however no longer that badly.
i have been doing OMAD for every week, and CICO. i have been feeling just right about it, i purchased a meals scale and weigh *the whole lot*. i have been staying beneath a 500 cal deficit from my TDEE, and logging the usage of LoseIt. I apply OMAD, which generally is composed of hen breast or tenderloin with salt/pepper and one tablespoon of ketchup, some baked greens (no oil), and both a greek yogurt or sauteed onions or part a baked candy potato. i exploit the USDA calorie counts when logging, and weigh the whole lot from condiments to cooking oil to my 30g of granola deal with for dessert. i have not been understanding this week as opposed to low have an effect on yoga, and stretching (for yoga).
it is been every week, and i were given again at the scale this morning. i do not personal a scale, so i have been the usage of the only at paintings. i wore the similar garments i did ultimate time as i weighed myself, and the quantity is EXACTLY THE SAME. i am so disenchanted. i do not perceive what i am doing incorrect. i do know i will’t defy CICO, the regulations of physics… however despite the fact that i doubled my meals consumption, i’d nonetheless be beneath my TDEE. i believed via now i would have some onerous numbers to head via to encourage myself to proceed, however i wasn’t anticipating zero…
having a look within the replicate, i do assume i glance thinner, particularly in comparison to that “back roll” image. however, as an engineer, i used to be hoping for some forged numerical adjustments. i hadn’t taken waist/arm and many others measurements, so i cant evaluate the ones to prior to.
I am simply venting and in reality, in reality disenchanted within the lack of scale movement in the end my onerous paintings this (first) week 🙁 I heard that the general public see a large loss the primary week and other people chime in to mention, nice paintings, however that isn’t sustainable, the primary week you lose probably the most and then it lessens and stabilizes. But for me – I were given not anything! Does that imply I am in reality doing one thing incorrect??
