I have been 129.8 for 12 days. I hit 128.8 for 2 days but bounced right back up. I. Never had a plateau last this long. I mean not even an ounce down. I do cardio everyday. I can't lift weights right now. How do u all stay motivated. I am going to continue because I have come to far. But I want to indulge in junk food, doesn't seem like its going to matter at this point. This is really getting to me. I know Tom makes me retain water, does I ovulation do the same thing? What am I doing wrong. Ugh beyond fustrated! :(

Consider youself lucky this is the first time this has happened.

Weight loss is not the same thing as fat loss. It's common for the scale to scale because of water balance.

Also, the last 10 lbs are the hardest to lose. It takes time.

I'd suggest you just keep doing what you're doing and see what happens. If you go 8 weeks without a loss it's pretty safe to say you're not in a deficit and you need to make some adjustmetns.

I think 8 weeks would really put me off. It's hard when u don't even see an ounce of a difference. Honestly even an ounce would satisfy me. I have been taking measurements hoping maybe those were changing but no such luck.

Motivation is fickle. I made a commitment to this journey. But maybe you can join a challenge on here for motivation? Also maybe try shaking things up a little with your diet?

I am in the daily weigh in so I really keep track of my weight and the longest I have gone without shedding a pound is 5 days. I am lacking motivation and the scale does affect me a bit but I am gonna keep going. I have tried the last couple days adding stuff I would usually not. Anyone know of a good shake I could add. I am thinking I need more calories. I like chocolate.
