    Don't give up. We all hit this point now and again and just need to find away to jazz up our routines. The new videos sound like a great way to kick things up. You can do this. emoticon

    Don't give up. I am in the same boat. I am slow in losing weight and inches. Let's do this together.

    Have you heard of Curves? I started last my on Nov 3, and I will find out on Dec 3 how much I have lost since I've been going. I really enjoy the workout and would recommend it anyone of the ladies in the group who has a Curves near them.

    BUT whatever you do, DON'T GIVE UP!!! GOONIES NEVER SAY DIE. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Please don't give up!!! You are so worth the effort. I think that we all stall at some point in time. Maybe you can try to change your fitness routine. A fresh routine can help to jump start your metabolism. Good luck!!! emoticon

    I have been at a PLATEAU just like you for over a month too.... but I am focusing on the fact I am maintaining and not gaining!
    I figure patience will win out.... and I am better off keeping at this than going back to my old habits!

    So know you aren't alone!

    This happens to all of us at one time or another. Sadly it will not be the last time either.

    Go for a walk. Get moving. Dust the furniture or mop the floors. Just get moving.

    Your body is trying to hold on to the weight and you just have to out wait it.

    Are you up-to-date on your cardio minutes? You might not be eating enough.

    You can do this!

    Hugs,

    Try changing up your menus or like you mentioned, your videos. Just do your best & your body will catch up! Don't forget to drink your water. Hang in there!

    DONT LET GO SWEETIE YOU CAN WIN . I HAVE GAINED 5 POUNDS. SO NOW I NEED TO WORK AT FINDING OUT WHY. I DID NOT OVER EAT AS OUR THANKS GIVING WAS LAST MONTH. SO JUST TAK A WALK THROUGH YOU LAST TWO WEEKS AND TAKE NOTE. DO YOU NEED TO UP YOUR EXCERSISE OR CHANGE IT A BIT. SOME TIMES OUR BODY GETS IN A MAINTAIN MODE AND NEEDS A
    CHANGE TO LET IT KNOW WE ARE NOT AT GOAL YET. HANG IN AND YOU WILL GET CLOSER TO GOAL.

    Hang tough....you are where I was for the past couple of months! Lost like gangbusters for quite awhile, only to slow to nothing even tho I was still eating right and doing the exercises. It's discouraging, but temporary.....I changed up my exercise routine a bit and it slowly started coming back off again. Sometimes you just kinda have to play around with the calories and the exercises, but don't give up....it's so totally not worth giving up the ground you've already gained! You can do it....and all of us have these spells as we go along!

    I know what you mean. I haven't lost weight either, but I know that I am building healthy habits. We get so focused on the scale that we forget about other positives. I bet you are sleeping better and have more energy than you had. I also bet your mood is better most of the time.

    You can do this, I agree that you should mix things up and remember, Goonies NEVER say DIE

    Time to shake things up, girlfriend! The last time I hit a plateau it was because I was in a "rut", doing the same ol' workouts and eating the same ol' foods every day. I had to toss the whole thing in the air and start over.

    I've backed away from the elliptical and the treadmill for a bit (no more than once a week), and picked up some Leslie Sansone walking DVDs, some Jillian Michaels stuff, and am learning spinning. Then I vowed to find some interesting alternatives to the foods we'd been eating. I cook all weekend so I can freeze some soups/chilis/stews against another day and have a serving for a hot lunch. It's working well so far.

    So try that and see what happens! Good luck and we're all here for you.

    Honey we've all been there! Some of us more than others and too many times to count by now And each time I get to that point I am reminded of this

    When things go wrong, as they sometimes will,

    When the road you're trudging seems all uphill,
    When the funds are low and the debts are high,
    And you want to smile, but you have to sigh,
    When care is pressing you down a bit-
    Rest if you must, but don't you quit.
    Life is queer with its twists and turns,

    As every one of us sometimes learns,
    And many a fellow turns about
    When he might have won had he stuck it out.
    Don't give up though the pace seems slow -
    You may succeed with another blow.
    Often the goal is nearer than

    It seems to a faint and faltering man;
    Often the struggler has given up
    Whe he might have captured the victor's cup;
    And he learned too late when the night came down,
    How close he was to the golden crown.
    Success is failure turned inside out -

    The silver tint in the clouds of doubt,
    And you never can tell how close you are,
    It might be near when it seems afar;
    So stick to the fight when you're hardest hit -
    It's when things seem worst that you must not quit.

    So when you're at the end of your rope tie an knot and hang on! You'll get past this like so many others have YOU CAN DO IT!

    Let's start by challenging yourseld Join me in this!

    Ya know what?? I felt that way a while back too... and am now 50 lbs down. I can't imagine where I would be if I had given up. Maybe you need to shake up your routine a bit? Are you measuring your foods? Are you sticking to your calorie limits? If you need any help... PLEASE feel free to sparkmail me.

    Without knowing whiat your eating or your exercise pattern, it is difficult for me to offer help. I might try eating at the bottom of my calorie range for a week and seeing where that gets you.
