Thanks for the follow up.
Yep, I've had pretty thorough thyroid tests as my mum has has issues with an overactive thyroid for many years.
A lot of what you've said about exercise I am doing (just didn't want to bore with an opening post) but having you say it back to me does help reassure me that I'm doing ok in that area. So, thanks!! I either increase resistance, pace or include sprints. The type of exercise is consistent but how I 'execute' varies. Saying that I think I'll start rowing every other day and perhaps ditch the weights as that should compensate.
Seems like I do have to take a much closer look at my diet as I'm burning 1000 cals a day at the gym.
Thanks Barb, but I've had a good run of blood tests lately because of all the injuries, the ones you mention I had about 6 weeks ago and they were all clear.
I'll try recalculating my calorie in take and watching for the next 2 weeks, see if it makes a difference.
First off, I think you are restricting your calories too much. Your body has to have so many calories, in order to function properly - you should only restrict your calorie intake by a few hundred, then make sure you use an equal amount in exercise.
That said, I'd have to ask if you've been checked for a thyroid disorder; hypothyroidism is a very common cause for inability to lose weight. Type II diabetes or insulin resistance is another........ you should get checked for both. For thyroid, you should have TSH, Free T3 and Free T4.
For insulin resistance/type II diabetes, you should get a hemoglobin A1c and check fasting blood sugars. Talk to your doctor.
