Get Lighter? Push Harder!

This Sparked Me!

If you've already lost some weight but hit a plateau, you might have to work a little harder. The heavier you are, the more calories you burn in a workout. That means once you're lighter, you can do the same workout and burn fewer calories. To break a plateau, go a little longer, add something, or switch to a more vigorous exercise. You can do it!
