I guess we have just got to hang in there and power through. I'm encouraged by all those having great success.
Yup. Exercise may stall WL. It is good for us but actually can slow the scale. Tiny tears in muscles occur with exercise and they need to repair. Inflammation happens temporarily and that is water weight.
This is why we should not micromanage the scale. And the scale isn't the only measure. Make sure that measuring tape comes out weekly, as well.
Stay off the scale if it stresses you. You can't control it anyway. The plan works. Just not always on our timeline. Let it work.
