emoticon One of the things I've learned over the years of "dieting," is that if you stall on the scale, ramp up the calories for a day or two. Your body has become used to the amount you're eating but if you give it a little more to boost your metabolism and then take it away again - you will see a drop. Try it and see what happens. emoticon

I feel that way too but hopefully it will move down faster at sometimes to make up for it. I weigh myself on Monday and Friday only. Anymore often and it is discouraging and less often I am afraid it will go up instead. emoticon

we all have times the scale gets stuck, it can last several weeks. just keep the faith and keep working at it. Some times a little change does helps. Treat yourself to a favorite food even if you go over a little on the calories one day is not a bad thing as long as its controled and one day. But like I said we all get stuck at some point. emoticon
