  1. Hey guys, So this is the deal. Two years ago I was about 5'9'', 17 years old, male, and weighed 215 pounds. I decided to go on WW (very old school program - the original one), and successfully lost weight until ~ 188 lbs. However, I then hit a standstill. I become extremely worried and found this place. People informed me of the new weight watchers program, points quiz, and points system (which is probably old by now). I was worried that I was eating too much, but I was actually eating too little. I was skeptical, but took everyone's advice. I gained weight for a week, then started to lose it again until i was down to 165. Over the past two years, I have gained some back. Some muscle, some fat. I am now 19, 5'11'', and 190 lbs. Ideally, I want to go back to 155-165 by the end of the summer. I have been working hard for the past three weeks, have but seen no results and it is getting very frustrating. I am now coming to you guys - as a last resort - because you guys helped me out before. I hope to see similar success this time around. Please tell me what I'm doing wrong! Current Diet: ~300 g of fruit a day (split equally between strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, raspberries) ~113 g of low fat cottage cheese Sandwich with 4 ounces cold cuts (roast beef or chicken breast), 2 slices of kraft singles, and a keiser roll two small dark chocolate cubes 8-10 oz of meat (typically chicken breast, sometimes fish, pork, or steak) 6-8 oz of starch (white rice or mashed potatoes) I eat this pretty much daily. I lift weights 45 mins a day four days a week. I refuse to believe I expend many calories, because I usually don't break much of a sweat while lifting. These past two weeks, I ran 5 miles a day no matter what (6 mph pace), however I want to start 20-30 mins of HIIT per day instead (30 second sprint, 90 second walk, repeat 10 times + few minute warm up and cool down). Here you guys go, please critique diet + lifting + cardio and please let me know why I am not losing weight. Thanks!

    Please Help

    Hello, I am currently a 16 year old male on WW. I first started my weight loss on March 1st, when I was 5'9'' 211 lbs. I was eating 26 points a day (from some "getting started" book), plus my 35 extra per week. Then, one week, I mistakenly ate 45, and said I'd only eat 25 the next week. Then I started spiraling down, eating 30-35 each week, getting more and more into "negative" points, but never eating more than 35 extras. Then, about three weeks ago, my weight loss hit a wall. I could not get past 188-189. I am currently eating 24 points a day after going under 200 lbs., and I have tried eating less than 35 points a week (eventually gave up the whole negative thing and started a clean slate at 35), but nothing works. Yesterday morning, I weighed in at 187.8, but this morning, I was back up to 188.8. Also, whenever I have lacrosse practice or a half hour weight lifting session, I add one more point to my daily points. Also, I have a "free" serving of milk/cheese (any dairy product for me), and I do not count those points. Please help me to get over this plateau or tell me if I am doing something wrong. Thanks!
