Weightloss Obstacles: Tips to Stay on Target
In spite of blaming metabolism for your body type or holding your genetics at fault, anyone can lose weight.
Since I'm about 80 lbs from my goal weight, is it really possible that my weight loss has stalled because I'm gaining muscle? I am one of those mesomorph/endomorph…more endo, lots of fat but it converts to muscle. The muscles in my legs were more definable after about three months of running and cycling, so I would say that I'm probably an easy muscle gainer. But could it be true that weight loss stalls because muscle weighs more than fat, even if I have so much fat to lose? Or do I need to tweak something to come out of this plateau? So far I've lost 25 lbs but that's it—for the last 3 weeks the scale has been the same.
It sounds like you are well on your way to reaching your weight loss goal! For whatever reason, unfortunately, losing weight is a common struggle. [.....]
