Have a cheat day. That usually helps me. You’ll throw off your body. You can also change up the exercise. Try upping your protein intake as well.

@Meggiemae14:  I don’t think no weight loss for 4 days is a plateau haha. Maybe because you just started exercising it will take you body a bit of time to adjust.

Cut out wheat for awhile. You’ll lose a few for sure.

@Meggiemae14:  Don’t be afraid. When I lost all of my weight, my mom and I would go out to dinner every Friday. We wouldn’t overdo it, but if I wanted ribs and fries, I’d get them. The other days of the week I was eating salads, lean protein, and tons of fruit. Also, don’t weigh yourself often. That will really mess with your head. You’re doing great!

Exactly. Don’t go nuts with your cheat day. If you binge and eat 8,000 calories — you’ll probably gain weight. But if you eat 2,000 instead of 1400-1600, it’ll screw with your body just enough to get it back on track.

@Meggiemae14:  4 days isn’t a very long plateau. 🙂 I tend to weigh myself more like once a week, just because seeing stuff like that freaks me out!

I’ve heard that exercising makes your body hang on to some water weight– around a pound or two, I think mostly for healing and growing muscle. So weighing yourself the day after a rest day, once a week, is the best way to see your real weight without the exercise-recovery water weight on you.
