Our expert says:
I think you've probably gone in too hard and fatigued yourself, because you went from zero to quite a demanding training routine in no time at all - to suddenly do weight training and an hour of walking is quite tough, and that fatigue is probably expected. So my advice is to back off - less weight training, and also not as intense. Also, maybe just ease off on the walking speed, and see how that goes. The other thing that is in play here is your diet - having increased your training, you would need to also increase your energy intake to compensate for that increase. At the very least, you need to look at the types of food you eat and make sure they're optimal.
Also, don't panic at a failure to lose weight - you are seeing muscle toning and that is a sign that things are working for you. So don't panic about the number on the scale - focus on getting fitter, on toning muscle and improving how you feel about exercise. But at the moment, your preoccupation with weight has driven you into a frustrated position. My advice is to see a dietician about the energy intake issue and sort that out, and just back off, give your body a break for a week or two and then take it from there.
