I have been on a plateau for three years now, gaining and losing the same 10 pounds. I just keep plugging along. Someday it will stay off.

Take only what you need.

When I did this the first time I lost 145 pounds. I never did hit a plateau.

I have had times when I eat poorly or don't work out and don't lose or even gain a little, but it's never been a true plateau where you're doing everything the same and it just stops working.

I thought everyone was crazy when they said eventually I would hit a plateau. It didn't happen until I hit 98 pounds lost. I simply could not get past that point.

But then for months my monthly visitor disappeared. I have attempted to put weight back on, nice and slowly trying to make sure it's muscle and not fat and finally my visitor came back! So now I'm TRYING to plateau and maintain this weight. =)

MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs

5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!

FOOD TASTES GOOD
Let us eat it in moderation.

Plateau heck, I was heading the opposite direction. There are articles on SP about breaking plateaus, check them out. When I hit one, I generally just give up so I really don't know how to break them, but I've heard that you can change-up what you're doing such as: change your exercise or change your eating for a few days, anything that changes the routine your body has developed.

Good luck. Since I've made my first new years resolution in years and decided to get back on track, I hope you figure it out so that you can help me when I need it.

Get started again with wheat or gluten-free eating and I'm going to make it this time by doing little steps.

Yeah...I think I've been on one for a year. emoticon Actually it's more like a roller coaster. emoticon I'm trying to find a way to get more constant downward movement.

Have you ever had a Plateau, if so how did you break it?

I have and haven't broken it yet.

Water is very important for us. We may, and I do, require more than the 8 glasses a day. The link goes to a water calculator I use to see what I need for my current weight. Mt requirement has dropped 9 ounces due to weight loss. Yipee!
