I wonder if anyone has had the same experience.
I’ve done excessive bouts of training (mostly swimming) for years but have also done excessive bouts of nothing. I noticed that immediately after stopping training my weight would remain constant for 3-4 months regardless of how much I ate. Afterwards this period I would put on weight even if I looked at food.
I took up running about 5 months ago. My weight remained constant for three months (very depressing) but I lost inches off my waist, hips and thighs (yes, I measured them weekly). Now my weight is dropping – I’ve already lost about 6lbs (3kg).
Maybe your metabolism needs this period of time to change to the “new” conditions?
