Ok, so let me start out by saying that this is the 3rd time I have hit this wall and I really don't want to give up on myself yet again. I'm HOPING that maybe someone else has been in this position and can give me insight rather than general knowledge.
Every other time I say, "what is the point of doing all this work and seeing no results." Logically I know my body is becoming more lean, but how long does it take before I actually notice any loss? At 240lbs I would think that I could shed 2 lbs per week, easily.
So up until a few days ago, my routine was:
1 day upper body
1 day lower body
2-3 days of cardio (Zumba/elliptical/treadmill)
1 day yoga
I've been eating about 1500-1800 calories per day (I've attached a screenshot of my FitDay log which is about what I eat on average).
My ratios have been in the 40/40/20 range, but in 2.5 weeks I haven't lost ANYTHING...
Here is what I've decided to change - and please tell me if you think I am on the right track:
Day 1: Lower body & 45 mins cardio (HIIT on treadmill)
Day 2: Upper body & 60 mins cardio (Zumba)
Day 3: rest
Day 4: Lower body & 45 mins cardio (HIIT on treadmill)
Day 5: Upper body & 60 mins cardio
Day 6: 45 mins cardio
Day 7: 60 mins Yoga
I would really appreciate the advice of anyone who has lost a significant amount of weight and has maybe run into the same problem.
Thanks in advance!
