My "stalls" occur pretty regularly. One or two weeks, out of almost every month. But, in spite of those, I still have tended to lose between 4-6 pounds a month. I just seem to make up, during the subsequent weeks, what I didn't lose during my stall.
I also tend to gain following most of my Up Days, but, then drop again, during my Down Days and Medium Days.
Although I'm somewhat addicted to the scale (lol -- I weight myself daily), I don't stress over daily, or even weekly, changes. Rather, weighing daily helps me to notice my weight loss patterns, and look at my successes over a month. If I worried about daily or weekly changes, I likely would've quit "dieting"/calorie cycling a long time time ago.
Your weight loss, over the past four weeks, seems to be a lot like mine. I generally lose between 4-6 pounds per month. The past two months, now that I am closer to "goal", I'm losing a little bit more slowly: 3-4 pounds a month.
Again -- I'm so glad that you were able to break your plateau! It is so frustrating when we can't lose weight, even when we seem to be doing everything "right".
