First and foremost, I want to encourage you to not give up. In my opinion, 7 days does not a plateau make. I would say you have stalled, but you definitely haven't plateaued.
Knowing that I don't believe 7 days is a plateau, I really haven't hit a plateau. There have been weeks when I didn't lose...even weeks when I gained a pound or two. Though I weigh myself daily, I try to look at weight loss over time. I have found that looking at 1 month intervals works best for me. I lost 17 pounds the first month and 8-10 pounds for the next 5 months. Now that I'm getting closer to my goal, my weight loss has slowed to 5-7 pounds per month.
Try to think of why the scale may not be moving. Is it PMS or TOM? I know I tend to fluctuate 1-2 pounds a week and a half before TOM (a pattern I noticed after a couple months of tracking). Have you been honest with yourself by tracking every BLT (Bite, Lick, Taste)? Have you been challenging yourself when you workout? And, finally, are you eating enough calories to properly fuel your body and not send it into starvation mode?
Keep tracking, keep exercising, keep doing the things you were doing that allowed you to lose an amazing 25 pounds the first month. The scale will begin to move again! Remember, this is a journey that will last a lifetime.
