    This is really frustrating to me. I have been working out very regurlarly, and hard, since the new year. Since then I have made noticible changes, but I haven't lost any weight. I am 6'2", and weigh 209lbs. Always 209. I bike everywhere now (because i have no car) and have been riding an average of ~15 - 18 miles a day for the past month or so. I eat healthy and take protien shakes, and lift and run and swim, but I can't lose any weight. I would like to get down to ~190.

    Does anyone have any additional suggestions?

    Thanks.

    how old are you? i notice it gets tougher with age :sad2:

    when i was younger i could lose a lb a day with perfect diet and 3 hrs cardio...

    im lucky i lose a pound every 4 days now, im 27.

    its kinda easy in a way...ya just burn more then ya take in...start counting.

    you say you see changes, what kind of changes are you talking about?

    if you are talking about seeing changes in your body then don't worry about what the scale says, just realize that your body is changing and looking better.

    Eating healthy isn't enough to lose weight, you need to count calories. I'm 6'3" and I've been working out for 7-8 months. 2 weeks ago I started cutting at 216lb and as of right now, I'm 209lb eating 1800-2000 calories a day (no cardio, strictly lifting weights 3x a week ala christophers' routine).

    How long have you been lifting for? There is a chance the noob gains are overshadowing your weightloss, making you think your staying the same when in reality muscle mass is increasing.

    i'm pretty sure that's what is going on. i can see that i have put on muscle mass, but i don't feel like i am getting more defined like i would like. i know that my arms and chest are bigger, you know? but i just still have some 'baby fat' going on. and i'm 22.

    any more tips would be appreciated. and i will check out the archived threads too.

    thanks.

    my two pennies....

    dont get on the scale, just look in the mirror
     
  10. Count your calories. Burn about 500 more than you eat and you should lose weight.

    But how does your body look? You might be gaining a bit of muscle and losing a bit of fat.

    there's nothing unhealthy about being 6'2" and 209 lbs if your bodyfat% is low and you eat healthy.


    If you just want to be skinny then that's fine too... Reduce calories, keep lifting and biking and doing what you're doing.

    If health is your primary concern, just do what your dr tells you if you have low or high blood pressure or bad cholestorol levels.

    You should pretty healthy.

    it's frustrating, isn't it? i just want to cut a few numbers off of my bf% maybe even get into single digits. i don't want to be scrawny, just lost a little to make my biking easier and swimming more efficient.

    Agreed

    The older I get, the harder it is for me to drop the pounds (And easier to pack it on)
