Great job on your weight loss so far!! I have been on a plateau for several months now. Before that I lost about 6 lbs doing Insanity and lots of power yoga and walking. This week I'm trying to bust through my plateau by starting Insanity again and incorporating weights this time and I'm also eating really clean. Before, I would stick to about 1500 calories a day but would incorporate junk food into that. But I think it makes a big difference (and I FEEL better) if I'm eating all healthy food for those calories. Plus, I'm burning about 600 calories a day. So we'll see if there is a difference at the end of the week!
After that reply about "shocking" your body I had a good think about how to inact this. I've decided to take the seven flights of stairs up and down to work everyday this week and kick up my work outs. Let's see...

I feel the same way! After losing 44 lbs I have 14 lbs to go ( which doesn't seem like a lot to me any more) but I feel stuck. I try and plan ways to conquer the rut but nothing seems to work. Does that mean this is my natural weight? Does it mean I should ignore weight loss for awhile and just focus on maintaining? All the positive remarks I've received lately inspire me but I can't help feeling like I'm failing...

First off Im a mom of two, very active and only have about 15-20 lbs left to lose til my permanent goal. Ive been chubby on and off since I hit puberty and after having kids Ive had enough. I exercise 6 days a week for 45 minutes, drink lots of water. I straight up am frustrated. I know Im not far from my goal but Ive been suck within 5 lbs up and down, up and down since December. Ive done P90X, Insanity, ChaLEAN Extreme and plenty of other things thrown in since December. Feels like a slap in the face. I have been watching my calories but feel like my body is starving all the time. What else can I do?
