I started Working out June 22, 2009. I had never gone to the gym before in my life. I always hated to exercise, and i was never active. When i first started i would walk and do a little bit of muscle works out however i never improved my eating. My starting weight was 217 pounds. I'm 21 years old and I'm 5"8 tall. Around October i started to take my weight loss goal seriously and i bought a scale to track my progress. When i weighed myself it seemed like from June 22 till October 11 I hadn't lost a single pound because i was 217 pounds EXACTLY. Then i decided to portion my meals and allowed my self to have whatever i wanted as long as they were in small sizes. I decided i would weigh myself every Tuesday and record the score. I would work out 5 days per-week. I would do 45 minutes of running (run 30 minutes at 5.5mph) then i would do the eleptical for 30 minutes or more basicaly i was doing about an hour and a half of cardio every morning and i would work all my muscle groups 3 times per-week. The idea seemed to have worked because immediately i started to loose weight. I would loose between 2 to 3 pounds per-week. I would always up my exercise whenever i noticed it got easy. By December 22 or around there i was at 190 pounds. I had lost a total of 27 pounds. I went away for the holidays and didn't exercise. When i came back i went back to my original routine and ever since then I HAVEN'T LOST A SINGLE POUND! i go down to 192 and go up to 196 then back to 192. I'm frustated a bit but i haven't gave up i still go to the gym every single day 5 days per-week and still do lots of cardio. What's interesting however is in December i was a size 36 now im a size 34. also people tell me i look so different and skinny but on the scale it shows something completely different. In pictures i see a difference in my look. But on that damn scale it shows 190 repeatadly. What can i do to fix this? i want to go down to 150 or 160 please help any advice and facts would be greatly appreciated feel free to point out what i'm doing wrong. And any tips that have worked with you in the past.
