I had a very large incisional hernia repair 12 weeks ago that failed. I am 5'2" and 230 lbs. How much weight loss is recommended before I try again?
I have been going to the gym for 12 weeks now. I'm circuit training, watching what I eat, and breastfeeding. No weight loss...Any idea why?
Fewer calories?: It sounds like you've been working hard and you are probably making more progress than you realize so don't give up! Circuit training is a great weight loss tool. I would focus on your calories "in" now. If you are not losing weight, chances are your calories (no matter how healthy) are still too high for you to lose weight.
