I've also had a plateau problem, so I have changed my exercises to go a little slower but for longer durations and I am reducing my fat intake. Seems my body has gotten too comfortable with my usual routine!
My greatest weakness is BUTTER, and evening munchies!

My weakness is the weekend...its the time we spend most with family and friends going here and there to this BBQ or this festival and along with all of this comes food and lots of it. Its hard to say no to this and that we you are trying to have a good time. This past weekend I endulged far too much. Have to stop this weekend thing.

Woke up feeling kind of negative this morning and sure enough, I still haven''t lost an ounce from my plateau weight of 137. I''m afraid that I will decide that this is good enough and give up pushing quite so hard. Exercising daily, eating well, sleeping well, in general I am feeling better than ever before! I''m 67 years old for God''s sake! I have to expect a little sagging by this point, right? right?

I love coffee but back in 2010 I switched from sugar to equal and about 2 months ago I switched from Equal to Stevia in the Raw. February 2012 i switched from milk in my coffee to almond milk and then recently I switched from almond milk to soy milk :)

Umm, as for my weakness. I love all things sweet chocolate is a big pitfall for me but am getting better at controlling that.

Last night I walked by some brownies you know, those hostess, little debbie kinds with the pretty party sprinkly things? anyway, my son wanted some and I told him we couldn't buy them b/c i'd eat the whole box. He then said "well you can share with me!!" I just laughed and said to him that no I'd still end up eating the whole box even if I bought them to share. hahaha I still can't show restraint at all with those things so I just flat out don't buy them.

If I'm gonna LOSE my A$$ I better MOVE my A$$!

Another carb junkie here. Not so much pasta and rice as bread, though. Rice, eh, I can take or leave. Sometimes I'm in the mood for pasta. But bread is my biggest downfall. And I don't eat the good-for-you stuff made with whole grains, I go for the white stuff. Especially pitas and tortillas and flatbreads.

Oops, forgot to add that I love potatoes. I could eat mashed potatoes every day, even though I don't. I like them roasted as well but, of course, stay away from fried.

Bread! bread, Bread, BREAD! This includes any refined flour item, like pasta or tortillas. It makes me lose my mind! or something... I have to stay away from it, have none in the house, and be alert and well-fed when I shop so none sneaks into my cart. I just love it but the after-effect of eating bread is always negative for me. It is the vehicle for cheese and mayo and butter and peanut butter and and and - - - I am packing several loaves around on my hips and belly, so I will not eat any more bread for the forseeable future...

Good bread. Artisan-bakery-quality bread.

After months at this weight-loss project, I think I can safely say, it is the bread that I miss the most. Can do without chips and bacon-double-cheeseburgers and cream puffs and kit kat bars, don't even think about these things. But bread? Staff-of-life bread? Yeah. I miss bread.

I still eat it, I just have to be *really* careful with it. I have to weigh out my portion and put the rest away. If i cut chunks from a baguette at the table, I'd eat the whole darn thing. Even after adapting to a "normal serving size" of every other food under the sun, to this day I find a one- or two-ounce serving of bread to be TINY.

Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE**
Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE**
Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)

Cheese ~ the sharper the better. I haven't found a good substitute.

Quite some time ago, I stopped taking sugar in my coffee, and then gave up the milk/cream. Now the only time I put cream in it is when I am in a place that serves horrid stuff ;)

I'd say bread is my downfall, and I really can overdo it on that consumption if I allow myself

I'm managing without my mountain dew, but I really miss bread. Thick chunks of bread were always my downfall.

I hear you on the coffee! I've slowly weaned myself off to only using one teaspoon sugar and a dash of hazelnut milk. My weakness is tortilla chips! Once I eat one I can't stop. It's only tortilla chips too, I hate all other kinds. I can't even keep them in my house because I'll eat the whole bag!

I think it is safe to say I am a coffee addict lol. Bad thing about it ia that I love it with quite a lot of sugar and milk :(
