Balancing WW and exercising - looking for advice please
I am looking for some advice please as I am feeling a bit lost.
I have been at goal for three months now. The leader said it was ok to say I was at goal as long as I was 3 pounds in my 'normal' weight band and then keep loosing more weight afterwards so I agreed with her. I probably still have another 3/4 of a stone to go before I am 'happy' with how I am. So I swapped the weight watchers direct debit to a gym direct debit and used my newly slimmer self to become a beginner gym bunny. And I am enjoying it. I do 1 Body Combat class, 1 Body attack class, 1 hour yoga and 1 hour swimming each week plus gym sessions when I am be motivated (I hate the gym part of the gym!) and an hours walking each day. Physically I can feel the difference all this exercise is doing but for three months now I have not lost a single pound!
I still go to meetings occasionally (they now clash with a gym class) and I am just maintaining. Going from loosing 1 to 2 pounds a week to zero is so depressing!
I am so confused about how to diet and exercise at the same time. I never used to use my weeklies as I would always stay the same so I stuck to my 26 points. Sticking to 26 points now and I feel terrible with low blood sugar crashes (ie nearly passing out) and just exhaustion. When I track what I eat I am around 30 - 32 points each day which is obviously too much as I am maintaining. (But I need that much not to feel like death!)
I am just wondering how other people balance the need to eat because of exercise yet loose weight as well!
