I know you can do it!! I was stuck at 145 for about 3-4 weeks in a row and it SUCKED! What is your MFP? I’m on there too! Here’s to hoping we both see 3’s for our next weigh-in….though I think you’ve got the better shot 🙂

I’m also on a plateau. I’ve been at 145 for over a month. Mine has been due to too much snacking on the weekends, and not exercising enough. I’m not gaining, but not losing which is frustrating. I need to get back on the wagon with 30DS, I did it for a couple weeks then just fell off.

Oh man, I need to drop at least 5 in the next two and a half weeks. I’ve been stuck around 145 too. I’m doubling my excercise and lowering my calories. I hope it works.

@ChemistryBride:  @jboltz19:  When you finish 30DS, check out Ripped in 30. It’s even harder! I definitely couldn’t have done it if I hadn’t done 30DS before. I think it’s more interesting though, because there are more exercises in each circuit.

Good luck!  Plateaus are really frustrating, but also a sign maybe your body needs a break?

When I was running a lot (training for a marathon), one of the things that caused me to drop a lot of weight very quickly was changing up a couple workouts.  I was running 2-3 times a week, doing yoga once a week and going out dancing once a week.

I was eating a lot healthier then too.  I feel so guilty just grabbing whatever convenience food (right now it’s making bean and cheese quesadillas with salsa!) is available.

Ugh, I’ve been on one for literally 3 months. I swear, despite going to the gym 4x a week religously and being very very good (tracking EVERYTHING on my LoseIt app) the scale hasn’t budged.

I hate plateaus.

I started the Paleo Diet on Wednesday so we’ll see how that goes. So far it looks promising. Fingers crossed

End Rant.

It is so hard when your body gets accustomed to your work out. I lost 120 pounds and then got stuck. I had to amp up my work outs and cut down on food and I FINALLY lost 10 more pounds…I’m at 130 pounds lost so far.

I think after a certain amount of success I became less strigent on myself and what I was eating. I definitely had to re-focus and get back to “work” so to speak.
