Question Need Advice on Plateau

Hello, I have lurked on your group and always get insight and inspiration from you all. I have commented on several topics. Well I am hoping you will pipe in here and give me words of wisdom. For over two weigh ins I have remained the same. Very discouraging since I have been journaling, kicked up the exercise. I have stayed within my points don't even count exercise points don't use all my flex points... I have been legal and still nothing. Help I am discouraged trying hard not to be. Has anyone experienced this and how did you cope? If I wasn't being so good I would understand..... I know all the pat answers..... Thanks for listening.... any help is so appreciated

I agree- eat more one day and then go back down to your daily points. do it after a weigh in so you have a whole week to work it off

Do you find that you are in a routine of eating the same type of things for breakfast, lunch and dinner? I found when I hit a plateau, that I needed to mix my food up a bit to get over the hump.

Thank you to those who took the time to answer. I will have to shake up my food I do tend to eat the same thing.

You might try the wendie plan to shake things up on your eating. I can't post a link for it but if you do a search you can read how to do it. I know it worked for me in the past when I did WW points.

Yay, I'm glad you've already received some great advice! This Wendie plan sounds like just what you've been looking for. Dawnyal is awesome, isn't she?!! If you don't go with that, then I would definitely recommend calorie cycling as well as exercise intensity cycling. Really shake things up, especially if you're stuck in a rut right now. Also, are you doing any weight lifting at all? And how many times a day are you eating? 5-6 times a day will do wonders for a sluggish metabolism. Also, you have to keep in mind that sometimes our bodies just decide to take a break, whether we like it or not! Just know that you are doing the absolute best things you can for your body by taking care of it, feeding it healthy foods, and giving it regular exercise. So even if the scale isn't reflecting your efforts, your body is thanking you for them, I promise! Just keep at it, day after day, you're doing great!!

I am a huge advocate of this idea, but have never seen it in print anywhere. I just noticed it is what has worked for me!

I would like to add, however, that it has been most successful for me when the extra calories I consume are all healthy ones -- mostly because I feel better and I don't end up craving bad-for-me foods because I ate them.

Thanks for the reminder here. Although I do advocate this type of thing, I haven't been thinking of it this week and I feel a plateau coming on.

Check out the Ladies Who Lift forum. You'll find some great information and links to websites with wonderful workout programs. I lift 6 days a week and love it.
