Is it stress? Lack of consistency, sleep? Too much cortisol? Not enough water?

It is mental? I'm holding at a few lbs shy of One-derland. Is it fear of "success"? Afraid of breaking the barrier again and losing my identity?

Stress continues - still lacking answers. Still working to remain consistent and sincerely appreciate all the Sparky support!

I hope everyone else is staying focused and doing well!

    Fatkat is right, the scale doesn't tell the whole story. But you know, you don't have to worry about those few pounds. Just track your calories daily and stay in the right range. Remember that the weight goal we choose is an arbitrary number. Our body will pick a final weight based on who we are and how we live. If you are fit and like the way you look, you might not need to lose any more. If you can still see a bit of extra tummy, just hang in there at the right calorie range. You should be eating a regular diet anyway, not a "diet diet". So just keep it up, you'll get there and it doesn't matter how long it takes at this point.

    This whole thing is such a journey and we go though many ups and downs during it, and sometimes the results just don't make sense, but we keep going anyway. You'll get through this one, too! I know that a couple of months ago, I had a near perfect month, and only lost 2 lbs, then followed it up with a not so perfect one, and lost 3. So who knows? I can't figure it out, either, but just try to keep going and try to make good decisions most of the time, and am trying not to stress too much about the results on the scale because I can't figure it out!

    I went through a phase where I was stressed because i wasn't losing any weight even though I was exercising and eating properly.. Lo and behold, a few months later I noticed that all my clothes were way too big for me. I hadn't lost weight but I had totalyt toned up my body.and was getting compliments from eveyone. After toning up, I started to lose weight again.

    For me, I think that there's a lot of fear of success. I think that we are better than that. Let's just do it!
