I've just started using the Nutrition Tracker on SparkPeople and caught myself thinking of my daily ranges for calories, carbs, fat and protein as "limits". That's so negative. Now I consciously think of those numbers as "ranges" - something to strive for. That's so much more positive, kind of like a goal.

I jut broke through my plateau by using a combinaton of tools.
I was on a 4 month plateau where the scale would not budge. This week I did a few things that seemed to work for my sluggish body 1) Worked out in the morning for an hour before breakfast (interval training switching every 20 minutes between bootcamp style wo 2) Tracked all my meals (portioned my meals 3) Ate a lot of whole foods this week (fresh fruit, yogurt, honey, eggs, lentil soup, salads) 4) Cut back on carbs(I limited my bread or pasta in take to two meals in the day instead of all 3
I think by doing all these changes it really helped my body get into fat burning zone....I hope this helps whoevr is struggling through a plateau!205
