Last year I lost 32 lbs. by changing my eating habits. More fruits and Veggies, Protein and only complex carbs. In Feb I hit a Plateau at 178 lbs. I cannot get below this line I teeter between 178 and 183 and I am 5'7". I had my thyroid tested and that came back negative. I recently had some allergy food testing and thought that may be the issue. I found I am allergic to wheat and egg yolk; and have a low tolerance for grains in general. So my diet is pretty healthy; Mostly protein, veggies, and some fruit. Very little alcohol.. Occasionally enjoy a nice glass of wine. I was only eating 1200 calories when I lost the original 32 lbs.; I know I shouldn't go below 1200 so I tried eating more calories. I have tried anything from 1300 to 1800 calories and nothing seems to work. I decided to up my workout; thinking that would break me through the plateau. I do 25-30 min of muscular work 3-4 times per week and Zumba for 60 minutes 5 times a week. I drink lots of water. I still cannot lose weight and I do not know why. I am getting married in June so I have been very focused on eating right and exercising for the wedding. I am not in a healthy BMI and every time I have a wellness check at work they tell me I need to lose weight (and they suggest not eating junk food and working out) I want to scream at their suggestions because I know I am not eating junk food and working out. Bottom Line I am frustrated and just want to be a healthy weight!
