I just figured out your calories and I really think you are under eating.
BMR- what you burn at rest 1379.6
TDEE- BMR x energy level (yours is 1.55)
1379.6 x 1.55 = 2138.3
now you take out 500- 750 calories a day no more. and then when you work out you burn more calories :)
Now what I do is eat 6 small meals with protein in each one and complex carbs out by 4 th meal and fiberous ones in like broccoli. And fruit out by 2 or 3rd meal. calories tapper down word threw the day b/c more active earlier in the day.
I really hope this helps.
Thats some wonderfull carefully concidered advice thank you so much for taking the time. I will implement everything you have both said!
Have you been monitoring the size of your waste? Since you are working out you are probably putting on muscle mass which weighs MORE than fat. Scales alone, are not a good indicator of weight loss.
Good point spade, yes measure belly, stomach, calves, quads, and biceps. Do this on the same day every week as well as weight yourself. You will loose but not always pounds. Last week I lost1/2 inch in belly and 1/4 inch in waist ans gained a pound. I would rather have the inches gone than the pounds. :):):):)
You also have to remember that our bodies carry around water weight and this amount changes all the time. Im not sure if maybe you are close to your cycle, but when I am getting close to mine, I tend to retain more water weight than I normally would any other time of the month.
Everyone's given some good advice. I was also thinking you're probably under-eating. Your body starts to store fat when it feels it's not getting enough. My doctor once told me that I shouldn't eat any less than 1000 calories. I am also 5'4" and I was told to stay between 1000-1200 calories to lose weight. I just wanted to add that since you don't have a lot of weight to lose, it's going to take longer. Plus, 1-2 lbs lost a week is very healthy...
