    Hey everyone,

    Ok so as some of you know I have had two disappointing weeks, loosing 1 lb in two weeks. I went through with my C why this may be and she seemed unsure as I have been sticking to plan. A couple of people at group said it may be because I am exercising a lot. I would have thought this should help my loss, its not like I am building up lbs of muscle each week.

    my exercise this week was ...
    sunday 1 hr aerobics
    monday 1 hour body step
    tuesday 1 hour body step
    wednesday 30 mins aerobics
    thursday 45 mins body step
    friday 45 mins body step

    surely none of these are exactly bulking me out. I am just trying to figure out why my losses seem to have been stopped in their tracks. Any advice gratefully received

    I do loads of exercise and spoke to a trainer at the gym bc my c always says exercise won't cause a gain or slow in weightless.
    Which isn't actually true the trainer said you have to gain some lean muscle first in order to burn more calories when you do exercise! But after a couple weeks the losses should be bigger!! Xx

    I agree with Mizkirsty. I have had a slowdown in the past few week when I've been exercising more and I can feel the difference in my muscles that have built up a little due to the exercise. I think it is more if you haven't really exercised before starting SW.

    Afetr new year I went from doing zero exercise to doing something 4 times a week. In the first 8 weeks I'd only lost 4lbs but had lost 4.5 inches off my waist, 1.5 inches off my chest, 1 inch off my hips and 1 inch off my thighs!!

    The last 2 weeks I've rejoined sw to keep a closer eye on my food and have lost 5lbs which I'm very happy with. I'm just parying I don't start to sabotage myself and stop the exercise - it's great for improving your mood as well as weight loss.

    I was the same, take ur measurements. I lost 8 inches all over but zero weight. Had I not have weighed myself I'd have been totally demotivated.

    Thing is surely you might not change weight but doing that exercise will have so many benfits just explain to your c that you are eating sw style but you are incorporating a goodly amount opf exercise far better then doing none as your body will burn fat more effectively and you'll be lovely and toned so dont worry about the slow down for a while

    Exercise burns calories. Less input, more output is a simple equation. When you exercise you will build muscle to some extent but don't worry about turning into the hulk. When you exercise your body will also want to maintain some water to help it recover - however this will only impact on weight loss in the short-term as the amount of retention will not increase. Plus the number your scales show you is only one part of the process - you are changing your lifestyle and the way you approach food; the weight loss WILL come.

    Just do not give up exercising!
    The weight loss effect will come, although it is true, that in the first few weeks you are more likely to lose inches, not pounds.
    Keep up the good work ;)

    Just a thought... Have you talked to your trainer about the importance of rest days? I think it is recommended that you have one rest day a week. That DOESN'T mean no exercise... A change is as good as a rest after all!:character0053:

    SW body magic says you will see a difference in the month after starting exercise, so you may slow at first but then speed up.

    Exercise plays an important role in maintaining a healthy body, and it makes it possible to create a calorie deficit and lose weight without starving your body and slowing your metabolism. But do not look to exercise as your sole method of weight loss.
