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.

Member Question:

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.

 

Answer:

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. [.....]
