I am feeling stuck at my current weight. Every morning I have been weighing in between 170 and 171 pounds. I know that this is not where I want to be. Granted my nutrition was not perfect at the beginning of the week, but I've been doing better the last couple of days and I have been working out. It is hard for me to make time for working out as much as I would like and I feel like I am just making excuses, but it's hard. I have a great plan for today and I am bound and determined to stick to my plan and try to be good over the weekend as well. I have a run and strength training planned for Saturday and if the weather permits, I'm hoping to squeeze a walk into Mother's Day plans. If it's a nice day and we can go somewhere flat and preferably by the water, my mother will probably agree to go even though she hates exercise in any form. At least today's Friday... Time to start tomorrow with a clean slate and do better next week.

    Good luck! I know how hard it is to get over a plateau.

    It's hard to stay motivated when you're doing the right things and not seeing any results. We have to remember that while a few days of eating and exercise is a great start, it's sticking with it that is going to give us the results we want (easier said than done as evident in my tracker...). I hope you'll be able to get some exercise in this weekend with your plans. Maybe just talk about going for a walk to a certain place (a park or around the block even) so it doesn't sounds more like hanging out than like exercise :) My mom is the same way. She gets all freaked out and warns me that she can't walk fast like she used to or that I shouldn't expect to go far since she is not as in shape as me etc. (yep, lots of excuses!)

    Good to see you're not letting a setback take over and keep you down! Just keep doing what you know you should be, and you can get through this!!!

    I'm going through the same thing. I honestly think my muscles are holding onto water from doing exercises.
    Like you I'm sticking with my exercise routines and my calorie tracking allowance.
    Good luck to you, be consistent and stay focused. It will happen for us, just maybe a bit slower.
