    Unhappy Stuck. Frustrated.

    I am back to working with my coach after taking almost 2 years off for the birth of my 4th.
    I have a trip coming up in 7 weeks so my goals with my coach is to lean out to where I was prior to baby and then go into another bulk as I was doing prior to baby. I was in the best shape of my life before getting pregnant with this last kiddo.
    I have been working with my coach for 2 weeks now but have been trying to drop weight on my own for a few months. Nothing is moving. I’m stuck at 140-141 (I’m 5’7”)... photos aren’t changing, measurements don’t change.
    Currently at 1500 calories (down from 1600 over the past few weeks)... 125-130p, 40-50f, and the rest carbs up to my calorie goal. Lifting heavy and increasing weights weekly... 5x a week (two upper body, 2 lower, 1 glute) and either try and hit a 8-10k step goal or on slow days, 30-45 min walking on the incline trainer at variable intensities and steepness (I can’t run).
    Nothing. I feel like I’m doing everything correctly, and it’s like my body just has decided it no longer wants to cooperate.
    Anyone have experience and stories of how you overcame a stale mate with weight? This trip coming up is important... it’s a presidents club trip my husband earned at his job. And right now, I don’t want to go. I’m so discouraged!
    Edit: baby is 14 months. I’m 34. Stopped nursing him 2 months ago.

    If you hadn't dropped any weight in 2 months it was because you were eating at maintenance. At your stats you should be able to drop fat/lose weight eating 1600 calories a day. Get a food scale to weigh, measure and track everything going into your mouth.

    Stay in your deficit and the scale will move.

    Keep at it and enjoy your trip!

    Definitely use a food scale and track ALL calories, snacks too (nuts can be a potential problem with those macros!). What is your activity level for the rest of the day? If you are mostly inactive the rest of the day, that might be part of the problem.

    If you are still at home with baby, try carrying him while you do your steps.

    Lack of sleep has always been a problem with me losing weight. With kids it's hard to get enough sleep, but that could be your issue too.

    Try to eat your allowance for carbs right before/during your workouts to give you the energy to get through them. My diet is similar to yours, so this is what I do, otherwise I don't have the energy and get lightheaded during my workouts. I also don't make strength gains either if I don't do it this way.
