Getting in Shape

I know there is a group on this subject but no one is ever there posting. Three weeks ago we started a biggest loser contest at work. I have been working so hard but the weight isn't coming off. Wednesday is our 4th weigh in and I am only down 7 lbs. I have cut calories to 1200 and sometimes can't even meet that. I am keeping my carbs between 100-125 daily. And I am exercising 3-4 times a week and doing Zumba 3-4 times a week. I have no idea why the weight isn't coming off. I went from having 6-8 cans of Dr. Pepper a day to 2 in 2 weeks. Any suggestions?

How are your sleep habits? water intake? bowel movements(not to be in ur business--but a naturopath dr say, your export should equal import if you know what i mean)

Have you've been to the dr to make sure your thyroid is ok? sometimes there could be an imbalance which can affect weight control.

Have you tried juicing as well?

I drink 8-10 glasses of water a day. I use flavoring that is sugar free because I cant drink plain water. Two weeks ago I went to have lab work done for gall bladder surgery and everything is perfect. My dr was ver impressed that everything was the low end of normal. I am a picky eater and dont like vegetables. I am joining a program at our Y Couch potato to 5K so hoping that helps. I understand what you mean about output. They are normal for.me.

Sometimes you can cut calories too low and it can work against you, 1200 is on the very low side. Here's a good article on that: http://www.active.com/nutrition/articles/eat-more-to-lose-weight-875082

 If you started working out maybe you should measure yourself too! Sometimes you lose inches without really losing a ton of weight! I know it can get discouraging but don't give up it sounds like you're doing a great job!
