Am I doing this right?

RE: Am I doing this right?
Desi, as much as we want to know everything in details as close as possible, we have to remember that when we talk about human bodies, we are not talking about a perfectly exact science. It's easy to overthink the whole process (hey, I did the same thing myself over and over before).

Sticking to 2350 a little longer is a good idea.

RE: Am I doing this right?
Okay so for now I will just stick with 2350 for a couple more weeks and see if anything changes much more and re-evaluate. I know there isn't one answer for everyone but I am worried about doing the wrong thing when my progress has been so great so far.
Thanks again!

You are doing great by sticking with it. Keep lifting and let us know how it goes!

Okay, sooooooo....stuck it out a few more weeks at 2350 and I believe my trend stayed consistent within 2-3 more pound gain, go up, go down, go up,go down. So I have been doing a cut for about a week or so. have not noticed any changes but hasn't been very long either. Hope I am on the right track. Was starving the first few days but that has tapered off, funny how I have to be so creful now to not go over after trying to figure out how to get it all in beforehand! So is four weeks a good start and then take a week break or wait to see what happens and then decide? Do not want to adjust to these calories, seems like some people do longer like 8 weeks then take a two week break, but it seems long?? I gained 10-12# during reset.
Thanks!

4 to 6 weeks (max), then TDEE break is an excellent way to do it. How much deficit are eating at? Results may be slow, give your body some time. Keep your eyes on your protein, water and fiber intake.

I am doing 15% cut, first few days did 19% but found it doiable and since I am sticking with around the four week mark thought I may as well. Still very accurate with my macros, mostly deficient on carbs if anything and not by much. So after four weeks, Take a one week break or two? I will check out link, thank you so much. I will say my every USA but lower with my workout eating less

RE: Am I doing this right?
Needing a lift up today, I just feel gross. Been a couple weeks at 15% cut and nada. Scale hasn't moved, clothes still tight, flab, flab, flab. Macros good, exercise the same, not increase weights as often as I was able to while I've been cutting, but timewise is cute nsostent in moderate. I'm sure this is normal, I hope but I need some words of encouragement today.

RE: Am I doing this right?
Desi, sorry you are feeling this way. I've actually been there. When you say a couple of weeks, how many weeks was that? Then looks like those weeks were around the holidays, which could hinder progress, even if you were watching your intake and macros. Eating out more? Sodium? Stress? Water intake? Sleep? All those things end up contributing for the weight not going down. Stick to it, be consistent. Sometimes the first cut does not give you the results expected.
When you cut, you will not see the same progress on lifting weights. That's perfectly normal.

I know you said your clothes still feel tight, but have you taken your measurements yet?

I haven't taken measurements but I can tell you that the place I am most uncomfortable and tight in my clothes is my midsection. Everywhere else feels stronger and more defined. I have not had any more stress than usual, I don't celebrate Christmas, so it's been relatively quiet around home. Although my kids have been out of school for two weeks
