A plateau is the time to look back at your accomplishments and the things you need to improve. By re-evaluating these two categories you should have enough NEW information AND ideas to change your goals! Exercise is like education. . . you can only read the same book so many times and continue to learn something new! Be excited to start a "NEW BOOK"

CHANGE IT UP!!! YOUR NEVER TOO OLD!! Give yourself positive talk!
I started my weight loss journey 12 months ago. Lost 31 lbs then hit a plateau. Have been at the same weight since Oct. 2010 or within 1-3 lbs. But now I feel positive. I am trying everything new, Zumba, ballroom dancing, even cross-fit, which I am now in training for ....I FEEL GREAT..I thought I was too old...soon to be 62. Next...I am going to try a spin class9
The Atkins diet really helped me get out of a big plateau i was stuck in for a long time. It was hard to stick by at first but it's really great for those who love meat and salads :) It's just a very low carb diet where you are allowed to eat up to 20 carbs a day which come from fruit and veg. I lost about 16 pounds in the first two weeks during phase one of the diet and this really motivated me aswell to keep up the work. I think this is a great way to break a plateau :)
