I've now lost 108 pounds*. While I lost 3 and 4 pounds a week the first few weeks, after 86 weeks I'm only averaging (across all those weeks) about 1.2 lbs per week. That means that despite strict continuous adherence to my diet, I went weeks and even one month without losing weight.
Hang in there; it works.
Sometimes, when you increase exercise, you create more muscle than you lose weight. Sometimes you retain water. Sometimes only the devil knows what the issue is. (Stochastic processes.)
Keep after it. You'll do it.
* Note that my weight this morning indicated a total loss of 108. However, during Sundays weigh in, I gained a pound since last week. You can't fret the "micro" variations.
