Hello, I'm new here and need some help. I am so close to giving up with my weight loss routine, as things just aren't moving forward and it's frustrating.
Here's my story:
I'm a 37 year old male, 5 ft 11 inches tall, currently floating between 198 and 201 lbs. I exercise 6 days a week, with a 3 mile aerobic program. I eat 2000 calories a day and include fruits and vegetables with every meal. I count calories very carefully and make the majority of my meals from scratch, so I have better control. I started my weight loss program 1 year and 1 month ago and had a starting weight of 232.5 lbs. When I originally started, I was following a previous weight loss routine that had worked for me in the past. I was only eating 1200 calories a day and didn't start exercising until about 6ish months into the program. When I stalled, I was told to increase my calories and after a month or so, I should see things moving again. I did just that and I was happy to see the lbs start coming off again after the calorie increase. Since then, I cannot crack the 200 lbs barrier for more than 1 to 2 weeks before I go back over 200 again. My goal is 175 lbs and have many friends that are reaching their goals in less time and losing much more weight than me. I have tried everything to get to my goal and feel that I am doing everything right, so what is it that makes my story different from everyone else's?
I don't want to give up and won't give up, but it is destroying my confidence every time I get on that scale Friday morning and see no change or a gain. I work really hard at this and am just not seeing any results. Please help.

Is your goal a realistic goal? What would it make your BMI?

The recommended weight range is between 143 and 178 pounds for my height and gender. My estimated BMI at that weight would be 24.5. With the recommended weight range for my height being between 140 and 178 pounds. In that range, my BMI would be between 19.5 and 24.9, which is recommended by health professionals. So I would be on the high side for both. I have been as much as 240 lbs and as little as 145 lbs and 175 lbs is where I feel and appear healthy.
What do you think? I'm looking for help.
Thanks for the response! I need all the help and support I can get right now.
