I am right there with you! But ask yourself this, are you more fit? Lifting more? I know I am. So part of plateau is muscle gain! But, to speed up loss, a few nights a week I do low carb dinner. Also, try to some days stay on lower end of calorie needs per tracker. Hang in there, yo u can do this!
I recently experienced the same thing for two solid weeks. It really started to get depressing since I was on plan. For no apparent reason, this morning the scale moved downward. I went back and looked over what I was eating for the last week. My carbs were within range, but on the high end for a couple of days. I think what finally moved the scale was more vigorous exercise yesterday. I have decided to keep my carbs on the lower end of the scale by decreasing starchy unrefined carbs a little in the evening and to stay off the scale. I was weighing myself almost every day. Taught me a good lesson.
How I got over my 3 month plateau--I looked at what I was eating and improved it. I switched to soy because I felt like it improved digestion. I switched to sprouted wheat bread--Ezekiel--for the same reason. Things I thought were healthy, I improved upon. I also read a book "Blood Types, Body Types and You" and that gave me some ideas on firing up my metabolism.
It forced me to think creatively.
I continued working out 3 times a week during the 3 months and my weight did not change. I weighed 157 at the time. I am actually surprised I stuck with it.
You can do it, just think outside the box, look at things you can change. The articles on busting a plateau are really good. Lots of creative solutions.
