Thanks Coach Nancy. I agree that that is a better way to look at it, especially in the long run.

A plateau is not just one week in the making. Weight loss is not a linear process--in other words an even loss week in and week out. The reason--there are so many factors that influence the number on the scale--your diet (sodium and fiber), workouts, hydration and even hormones. If you look at this journey at just seeing success on the scale you may find yourself abandoning your program only to gain the weight back.

However, if you look at this journey as one to integrating healthy habits into your life regardless of the number on the scale, trust me, the changes will come and you will be freed of the diet mentality.

Hang in there!

Coach Nancy

So, I lost 4 lbs. the first week, 1 lb., the second week and 0 lbs. the third week. Off and on for the past two years I've been trying to lose weight based on what has worked in the past. Twice I only lost three pounds after being consistant for three months each. I feel like nothing will work anymore. One question, do you know if over-the-counter sleep meds will slow down your metabolism?
