How come I'm not losing more weight?
I have been eating healthy, counting calories, and walking on treadmill at 10% incline at 4mph 45 minutes daily in addition to other light exercising for 3 months Why have I only lost 10 lbs?
I can't really answer your question, since I don't know the specifics of your situation.
Actually, 10 pounds in three months isn't bad if you are trying to stay healthy as you lose. It depends on how much you want to lose and how much calorie restriction you are living with, but losing 1-2 pounds a week is a healthy goal.
It could also be that with all the exercise, you are converting fat to muscle, which weighs more than fat. Have you been measuring to see if you are losing inches? You may have lost more than 10 pounds of fat.
The type and amount of foods you are choosing can also have an effect on weight loss. Hopefully, you are eating a diet based on whole foods, including fruits, vegetables, lean protein, whole grains and some healthy fats. (If you rely too much on artificial sweeteners and processed foods, this can sabotage your weight loss efforts.)
