Default Exercise and a Stall....

Hi all...I have been doing LC since end of May and I had really lost a lot of weight!! 28 pounds to be exact.

I recently (2 weeks ago) started a running program called couch to 5k. I have noticed my weight loss has completley stopped...I have actually gained 1.5pounds!

Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong??

Not really seen any loss in inches either...I feel so discouraged

There have been several recent research studies showing cardio hinders weight loss in some individuals, particularly overweight women. There was a good article about it posted in our "low Carb Studies and Research" forum, but I can't find it to link it for you, and site search isn't working. But you can google for them.

Here's one such article:
Why Women Should Not Run

Edited to add,
Aerobic exercise reduces resting metabolism

Exercise can suppress metabolism:

Those still aren't the one I was specifically looking for that studied overweight women. Maybe someone else will remember where that one was.
