The thing that helps me when I am stuck on a plateau is to always continue tracking. But the biggest thing is I try for the higher range in protein and the lowest range in carbs plus adding more exercise and "Voila" the scale begins to move down again! Hope that helps.

I wouldn't lower calories any more than you already have - that could put you into starvation mode. Lots of times having a good cheat meal now and then will jump start your metabolism and get your weight loss moving. I don't know what you eat on a daily basis, but lots of times eliminating (or at least greatly reducing) grains, especially wheat and gluten products and dairy can help get things moving again too. I was struggling with 10 pounds recently, so I followed the Virgin Diet for a couple months (eliminate 7 foods - sugar and artificial sweeteners, gluten, dairy, soy, corn, peanuts, and eggs for 21 days) and got rid of those 10 pounds.

I'm stuck also. I've lost 64 lbs pretty steadily - about 1-2 lbs a week and now the scale is staying put. I want to lose 25 more, but I guess if I'm stuck here for a while it's ok as long as it doesn't go back up. I've gotten rid of all my fat clothes - never going back there.

Hi, new to this forum. I am just stuck period!!!!!!!! Low energy and no motivation, how do I get motivated???? Okay now for you :) I read that if you change your routine, mix it up, it shocks the body to work again. Say if you did 1, 2, & 3 on Mon, Tue, & Wed, change it to 3,1 & 2 or toss in 4 or 5 in place. It said the body gets use to doing the same routine over & over and it needs a change. may help if you plateau again. emoticon

When I get stuck, I try to get in two workouts a day. Elliptical in the morning and fitness class after work. It takes time, but it is worth it! emoticon

I have been at the same weight for about 4 weeks now. I need help. Must I lower my calories again? currently eating 1200-1500. I feel like I would starve if I go down any more. Of course, I could workout more if I had the time and felt like it I guess. Need help! emoticon
