Weigh in day today: the results are in...a line. A straight horizontal line. I'm not gaining (yea!), but I'm not losing (boo!). My weight has been pretty steady day to day too. I appreciate this since the wild fluctuations were driving me nuts. I'm not happy or sad. I'm not even mad at the scale. I just feel sort of neutral about it.

I'm still deciding if I believe in the muscle gain theory. I know I'm been working out a lot and putting on a lot of muscle in my legs. This could be causing a plateau that will hopefully self-resolve soon. But what if that's just wishful thinking? I have doubts. What if I'm not doing this right despite the consistency of sticking to the program?

    I would suggest trying new foods or changing up the workout routine to break through the plateau.

    You are being consistent and so you are doing it right! Muscle gain isn't a theory, it's truth so be thankful because you'll lose again soon! Have a great day!

    Plateau's stink for sure. But if you've been working out a lot and that's a new/significant change - then you could be gaining muscle - at least at this point - at almost the same rate as your weight loss ... How do your clothes fit? How do you feel?

    Regardless ... the process works - and you will get to your goal. Just hang in there. It's worth it.

    And - it's a little late - but welcome to SparkPeople!
