I found when I plateaued that it was usually because I wasn't eating enough so I'd up my calories and without fail it would get the scale moving again. (Apparently a high calorie day while dieting also releases a lot of fluid retention).
But it depends on the cause of the plateau. Sometimes it's the opposite and people become too relaxed in their nutrition (start eyeballing portions, not recording some things, general underestimating calorie intake).
Sometimes it's just fluid retention messing with the scale (more exercise than normal, not hydrating properly, eating too much sugar/sodium, etc.)

"Toning" is marketing muscles to women who are afraid if they pick up a barbell, they'll leave the gym looking like She-Hulk. It doesn't happen, what does happen is you get results. Lifting Barbie weights does nothing but waste time.
