I'm too heavy to do any real extensive cardio and have severely cut my calories in order to lose weight and get to a place where I can start doing some real exercise.
15 months ago I was 338 lbs and through cutting calories, quitting soda and light walking I've dropped to 302 and have been stuck at that weight now for about 4 months.
I've run the calculator again last night to adjust my calorie count to see if that is the problem. I need 2,817 to maintain, 2,317 for weight loss and 1,817 for extreme weight loss; I've been taking in ~1,200-1,500 even before running the calculator so I don't understand why I'm at a stand still.
Diet is currently 3 protein shakes throughout the day for each meal, a bowl of granola or whole grain cereal for breakfast, two folded sandwiches a day of 1 slice of bread, 1 slice of various cheeses, 3 slices of various meats; one for lunch and one for dinner; a bag of steamed vegetables and two cups of fruit and a glass of milk for dinner; I'll have a bag of popcorn at night to take the edge off of in too hungry. Once a week I'll have a steak for dinner instead of a sandwich and still have the veggies, fruit and milk and once a week I'll replace my breakfast with a four egg omelette with cheese and peppers and some oj - I don't have the steak and omelette on the same day.
I want to cut another ~25 lbs and get down to 275 and hopefully start jogging; if not running short distances.
Any insight is appreciated.
I know I'm a fatty. That's why I've been working at it for over a year, have made some progress and I'm looking for help to keep moving forward.
