Thanks 1BUGZZY. I'm frustrated with the loose skin on my throat, I didn't have it before losing weight and I think it makes me look older. However it's not worth putting weight back on as it's the only negative I've had with the weight loss. I will see if I can get hold of the book and give it a whirl!

December 2008 72 kilos = 158.7 pounds.
December 2009 78 kilos = 172 pounds!!! Going the WRONG way!

Hi I'm new to this team.
Congrats Kathy, just don't lose hope. I found that when I hit a plateau sometimes just having one naughty day would kick start my weight loss again. You can only do this if it won't send you off the rails. SP have an article on the subject, look up the articles under plateau. Good luck.
WEEZEL333, yes I'm also bothered by the 'turkey' thing. I never had it before and I find it makes me look so much older. I tried a throat firming cream but it doesn't look any better. Let me know if you find a solution (apart from surgery) !!!

Hi there! First of all congrats on the weight you've already lost!! WOW~~!! emoticon

About the plateau: First of all: Perhaps a bit of a psychological crutch, but for me it's just as important to maintain weight lost as is loosing...don't despair but tell yourself you are maintaining. The longer the better, to be sure it's not coming back on!!

Secondly, if you have only little to loose from now on (the last 5 or 10 lbs...) it is always double or triple as difficult as is the first lot of weight. Like finding a new address: getting on the highway and almost there is a breeze, but that last kilometer can be daunting...it's a question of perservering and faith combined: that address (or weight goal) IS REALLY THERE, just don't give up!

And then just in case you have not considered the option: have you adjusted your goals since your plateau? YOu may have to re-define your weight goals according to your current BMI and weight, exercise level etc...

I am sure I am telling you what you already know, just hope that it will encourage you for now!!

Bonne courage!!

Hi everyone! I've been a SP member for almost a year and have lost 105 pounds so far. I'm in a plateau right now and can't seem to get out of it. I follow my eating plan, exercise every day and drink my water.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
