Plateau?

One weigh-in (which I'm guessing is only a week past the last)?

It's a bump; a place where your body is adjusting.
Have you considered that you're developing muscle, replacing the fat you wish to eliminate?

Don't obsess over the scale - continue on your exercise program.
Use other factors to gauge your progress (stamina, feeling of health, avoidance of snacking which you mention, etc.)

Hi all,

Things have been going so good for me this last couple of months! I am eating healthier & stopped almost all mindless munching. Notice I said almost all, I still have a moment or two where I will find myself putting something in my mouth without really thinking about it. But on the plus side it is usually something healthier!
I am doing Insanity cardio workouts 6 mornings a week and taking a zumba(ish) class at my local Y one night a week. I also try to squeeze in a 2-3 mile run once a week if possible to prep for my monthly 5K I do.
As a result of all of this I am down 10 pounds. emoticon
My weigh in for today should put me at -12, however it is hanging at the -10 range.. In my eyes this is NOT acceptable!! I continue to work away and to not lose anything is almost devastating & honestly, enough to steer me right towards that bag of cookies I bought for my kids! emoticon

What do I have to do to continue to work through this plateau and keep me on weight loss path?
