  • sick of hitting a plateau

    If being overweight is bad for me, then why is it that when I don’t break my diet rules even ONCE, I’ll lose weight for several weeks in a row and then suddenly stop no matter how careful I am?

    I know what you mean. Those are the worst for your motivation. Try stepping up your exercise just a bit, even if you just hit the gym harder one day every week. It might just mean that you need to add more challenge because you're more fit.

      i know how you feel. I had 6 weeks plateau this spring. I didnt go over my daily kcal limit, i was working my ass off at the gym like crazy, and i mean even the trainers knowing what workauts i was doing , couldnt believe i wasn't doing anything. It is very frustraiting. Eventually i changed my workauts, like instead of normal cardio/muscles training i was only swimming for a week.
      I did a lot of research that time, and apparentely it is very normal for the body to plateau, and it is temporary. If you don't slip, eventually you will start loosing again.

        Just don't give up!

        I have no idea why plateaus happen and when they keep coming week after week no matter how much you stick to your program, it can really feel like all the effort isn't worth it, but it IS!

        Just stick to it and when your body is done sorting itself out, you'll be back on track and losing weight once more!

          Delilah is right. You just have to keep it up and not give up and slip on your rules.

          A plateau just means that your body is adjusting itself. So give it time to figure itself out and you'll start losing weight again.

            When you hit a plateau, try something new. Give green tea a try, for example, or go without that treat you know you've been sneaking in once per week

              plateaus happen to everyone. The important thing is to keep trucking through and just wait it out. It sucks, and it's not easy, but just keep going and you'll start losing again.

                Every diet ends up in a plateau at some point or another. Unless your entire weight loss goal is only a small amount, like 5 pounds or something like that, then you're going to face a leveling off at one point or another.

                It's frustrating and it makes you want to give up, but they do finally go away when you just keep up your efforts. It's hard, but try to stop fixating on how much you lose every week and try to focus more on making sure that you're doing everything right. When you're eating less and exercising more, the weight loss will happen. Sometimes it's faster and sometimes it's slower, but it doesn't mean that it won't keep occurring just because you've hit a pause moment.

                    I just hit a plateau, myself. For two weeks, I haven't lost a single pound. I feel like screaming. I even doubled the number of walks I've done for the last four days. No difference! It's like the universe just chooses not to let you lose weight consistently, forever!

                      How long is it normal to keep a plateau? I know that it happens to everybody and they can be unavoidable, but how long should you continue to not lose weight before you start to take some sort of drastic action to correct the problem?
