So, the husband and I went on a huge bender the past two years and decided to take it all of this January. We are using an app to track calories - using the calories in/calories out methodology period. No other diet. Things were going great. My goal was to try to lose around 2 pounds per week and for the most part, I achieved anywhere from 1.5 to 2+ in the first several weeks and the weight loss slowed as my overall weight went down (as expected). What I didn't expect was to be pretty stagnant for all of April. I just can't seem to lose these last 10. I measure my food, track everything I eat (I do yoga 3-5 times a week and have started playing tennis on weekends now that the courts have reopened). I have always taken the stance that I want to lose weight based on calorie restriction alone - workouts are for my overall health and I don't want to rely on the calories lost as I don't really know how much I burn. For example, depending on the source an hour of Vinyasa yoga burns between 200-500 calories an hour. Who is right? Additionally, based on the teacher some of the classes are much more strength/cardio and others are more stretch so definitely there is a variation there. But I digress. My BMR is 1330. A "sedentary" individual is supposed to increase that by 1.2 to 1596 - let's call it 1600. I was eating in the 900-1000 calorie range (not including workouts). According to the calorie deficit I should be losing at least a pound a week. Not happening. In fact, I actually gained weight one week. I didn't freak out after the first or second week, but it's been almost 5 weeks of similar weigh ins and I'm starting to get frustrated. Not only that, I am a bit nervous that if I go back to "eating normal" - meaning 1600 calories I will gain weight if I am eating 1,000 now and remaining stable. Any ideas?
