hey guys, i know its been a while since ive wrote. ive come to a real problem in my weight loss. the first month is over and ive lost 10 pounds, now its the second month and im not losing weight! and im gettin so tired of eating sandwhiches for lunch and dinner, does anyone have any good sensible way to lose weight and eat good food at the same time? is it because i eat about 1000 calories a day? my dad said im not losing weight because im not eating enough calories, any tips? thanks

i've been on a 1000 calorie diet for the past 2 months and i've lost 30 lbs, what your experiencing is a plateau, and the only way to ge tover those is by changing something in your weight loss program..switch off sandwiches to another deal or try a different excercise routine, i have to do it every couple of weeks because your body gets used to it and stops feeling the need to burn fat. you can still eat alot on a 1000 calorie just eat healthier, salad without a lot of dressing is good, boiled eggs..oatmeal, raisin bran is excellent for breakfast because it gets your metabolism started. im also a vegetarian though so i dont know what meat does. hope i helped!

i agree with your dad. When i was losing weight before i lost like 2 pounds every week and i was having like 1600 cals. then i reduced to 1500, 1400 and 1300. Dont go below 1200 it lowers your metabolism. Also increase exercise if possible. I know how you feel about eating sandwhiches. I used to feel so secretly pissed off at my friends at lunchtime cause id be eating rice cakes and they were all skinny and eating hot lasagne, coke and chocolates. Hooe this helps!
