    As far as I know you have to go 2 weeks with being on plan and no weight loss for it to be considered a plateau. Some ways to break a plateau that might help are to lower your carbs, up your fiber, reduce salt intake, drink lots of water, increase your exercise, change your exercise, carb or calorie cycle, weight train, up your protein intake, eat 6 small meals a day, weigh your food, etc.

    I had one week of no lost, but now the train seems to be back on track. I have upped my calories (I really focused on protein) and my walking just a little. Hang in the their be patient with your body if the overall trend is down you are doing something right. One week could be something simple as fluid retention or added muscle. Maintaining is a good thing. Go easy on you! Your efforts are paying off.

    I looked at your shared trackers and if they're accurate, you may not be eating enough for as much as you're working out. Are you really only getting 800something calories some days? Did you aim your tracker for the amount of calories you're burning? You may be having a range 100 or more calories higher than your range would say if you don't have your tracker set for any exercise.

    You'd be surprised at how much more quickly you'd lose when you eat the proper amount of calories in a day. It may be counter intuitive, but your body will shut down the fat burning if it's not getting enough calories.

    Keep up the great exercise! It's a great way to boost the fat burn!

    Remember you are a cyclical being. True weight loss is measuring at the same time in your cycle each month. And while at this point in your cycle you haven't lost, you haven't gained either. Good job blogging.,
