I would like to say that Iíve busted my PLATEAU! Iím thinking so anyway. I recall when I first posted how frustrated I was because I did not see any scale changes in 4 weeks; which eventually carried over to two months. But then Iíve read were others have said itís been months and even a year for them; I know that would have put me in a tailspin. It seems I couldnít get below 200 the scales would bounce from 203 to 199 and back up again. Well, on my last weigh day; this past Monday the scale read 189.6. Imagine my surprise, boy was I elated. Well, Iím happy to see the scale move again and I would like to think Iím out of PlateauVille for a while. Iíve not changed my tracker to reflect the difference; Iím waiting on the next weigh date to make the adjustment.

What did I do different, nothing major, not really. Iíve added the BodyMedia Fit as a tool for motivation; that keep me moving. I added Fish Oil to my daily supplements. I continue my weight training and cardio; no difference in that and of course trying to maintain sensible eating. So who knows what has happen, I just hope it continues. Itís easy to get frustrated but if we continue to be honest about what we put into our bodies and push ourselves to move a little more; give it 100%; sometimes when you donítí feel like it; the results will show; whether they are positive or negative; thatís up to us. Iím trying to remember that myself when I go through the rough times. Iím just glad that I have all of you to vent my frustrations and just say whatís on my mind.

Thanks to all of you and keep pushing!

    Super! It is so stinking frustrating to have the scale stay at the same number (or even go up!). My scale is pretty much staying the same, but that's my fault because I'm not really putting my all into this. I need to get serious!!! I've lost some inches, (1/4" to be precise, but hey! I'm thrilled to see it!) I've knocked one thing down that was my goal: I've gone from sitting on my kiester most of the day to exercising 5 days, sometimes 6, out of 7. So I consider that a win.

Stick with it. I've noticed even when the scale isn't budging that my clothes are fitting better! Hope it's true for you too! G emoticon od bless you!

    Sometimes your body just needs a bit of time to adjust to its new circumstances before moving on. Sometimes you need to change your lifestyle a bit more. Congrats on your breakthrough!
