Hi guys! I need help, I am a 31 years female 5"4 height. I dont understand why the scale doesnt show even ONE POUND LOSS! some history - I at the age of 18 reached 180 lbs, did weight watchers and lost 50 lbs in one year...was able to maintain it as well. With further more workouts and right eating I got down to 125 lbs (which was unhealthy as I had to take extreme wokrout and diet measures) I slowly reached my "right" weight 135...with a leg injury and no workout for gained 15 lbs to150lbs ..which i got rid of easily by follwoing same wokrout eat healthy etc! Then at the age of 27 I started getting anxiety attacks, I lost 10 lbs in a month, and became very weak. I was put on a med SSRI, antidepresant Lexapro 20 mg....and it began...from 125 -> 130 -> 135 ->140->145->150....and all this time i have been working out normally...not too intense...last yr i got a personal trainer and no results! A key thing to add - I have been tappering off my med and now I am at 4mg/day...this has taken 2 years! So overall i have been on this med for 3 1/2 years and going. I just dont understand what I need to do...I eat 1300 calories/day do 60 mins cardio and 15 mins strenth training with arms one day abs 4 times a week etc....no effort of mine has shown a 1 lb decrease...not one! Even if I dont workout, I am just a healthy eater...I see people around me eating stuff that I cant imagine to! I really dont know what I should do. There is no thyroid or hormone issues, i got the tests done. Does anyone know if this is purely med side effects? If I was to get pregnant, i would easily gain some more weight as one does..
I really need help, feedback, opinions, thoughts...I dont think I will ever stop working out...ever as it makes me feel less guilty abt eating...helps my anxiety etc plus i am hopeful to loose
Please someone guide me what i should be doing, i dont want to be like this and get preg and be even bigger and frustated :(
