I know that I shouldn't weigh myself, and I also know that there are diets out there that advocate lots of protein and few carbs, etc., etc. At the same time, I know that - on here especially - there is the 'eat less, do more' brigade, that suggests weight loss is simple. But for me, it is not proving to be.
15 days ago, I cut my calorie intake almost in half, and have only exceeded 2000 calories once in the last two weeks. I am averaging probably about 1900 calories every day. Using MyFitnessPal, I am consuming about 50% carbs, 30% protein, and 20% fat as part of my 1900.
In addition, I have done 30 minutes of swimming daily, save for 3 days on which I was too sick to go, and commute to work by bike most days.
For all that, I lost a kilo in the first number of days, which I assume was water weight, but I haven't dropped anything since. 10 years ago, I went through exactly the same process, with the exact same approach to diet and exercise, and lost consistently and steadily each week for a few months until I was down to 75 kgs, whereas I can't seem to shake anything now.
I know it is, as someone on here said, a marathon not a sprint, but I need some encouraging signs at this stage! Either that or some pointers.
