What would you do?

I have been going to a crazy bootcamp for the past month or so. And while I am seeing great improvements in my fitness, (um, 11 minute mile?) I am not losing weight.

I have been pretty diligent about counting calories, staying around 1500 or 1600 for the most part, and I have not lost a single pound.

I'm not complaining, just stating facts. 

I'm having a hard time with it, because yes, I do want to get more fit and be able to do more, physically. But I am desperate to see a change on the scale.

I love bootcamp. It pushes me to do things that I would never even attempt by myself.

I miss running. The music in my ears, my feet hitting the pavement, the fresh air on my face.

I'm trying to decide whether I should continue with bootcamp for the next couple of weeks, go back to what I was doing before, or even try something new all together. Or maybe combine all of them?

My main goal through this whole process has been to get healthy, and with that has to come some weight loss, which at the moment is not happening.

So my question is, what would you do?

If you like the bootcamp, keep it up - I find I am more likely to follow-through when I enjoy my workouts! Have you tried INCREASING your calories and mixing up what you eat? i.e., eliminating white stuff, eating more protein, limiting fruit to 1-2 servings/day, etc.?

Good luck whatever you do!

I would do all 3 if possible. I was just there..I couldn't get past 189. I started not eating after 5:30pm and it REALLY helps. I know it sounds awful, but it's not that bad. I eat 3 meals a day, & a snack. Not eating after 5:30 or even 6, lets you burn the calories off before you go to bed, otherwise, when you wake up you have to burn off your dinner than that day. Anyways, I went back to this because it worked for me the summer I got married and it's working now. I was down 2 pounds. I want to challenge you to try it! :) keep it up! & an 11 min mile!? OMW you are lighting. and bootcamp? I am way to chicken.
