AWESOME job on your weight loss! that's a lot of hard work!
i have hit a plateau for the past 4 weeks and have kept on with the working out and eating right - i'm just hoping at some point my body will respond and the scale will move. it helps that i do feel some muscles under the jiggle - i'm with you though - can't wait for the sunshine and the pool!
Plateaus are frustrating, but it sounds like you have the right attitude... Maybe change up your exercise routine - try something new and see if it's a breakthrough. Or, change up your diet. If you've been eating the same things, try incorporating new recipes or healthy foods.
The other thing to keep in mind is: the less weight you have to lose the slower it comes off. So, you may have to reset your expectations after losing a significant amount of weight.
It will all come off in time. Just keep up the good work!

It's good that you're not upset! :)
What about your diet or exercise plan could you change? Sounds like your body is tired of the same old, same old. Is there another healthy food you could add, something you could take away, or another exercise you could try?
Your happiness is up to you. Whatever happened in your life to make you who you are up until the point you realize this is irrelevant. It is your responsibility now to take control and change your life to be what you want it to be.
Energy and persistence conquer all things. Make time, not excuses.
