I’m 5’6. I used to hover around 135 pounds (129 at my lowest) and steadily for the past year I’ve gained 15 pounds to be around 150. I fluctuate between 143-150, but as of the past few weeks I’ve been hanging on at 148.
I use a Fitbit to track my workouts. I don’t count on it to be exactly correct, but it shows my BMR to be about 1400 kcal/day. I average about 1900 kcal/day burned at 2100 kcal/day after working out HIIT 3x a week. It says I burn 300 or so calories doing 60 minutes of HIIT.
I’m 24 years old. When I was 21-22, it was super easy to lose weight. Now, the scale won’t budge. I’ve been hardcore HIIT the last three weeks and eating about 1500 calories a day, making sure I get enough protein and fat in my daily macros. Nothing else is working, though. I should be losing weight if I’m at 1500 calories a day and burning 2000, give or take 100.
What else can I do? Is it just my body getting used to the workouts? I should lose about 10 pounds in 12.5 weeks, and 3 weeks in and I’ve lost nothing. Help!
