I know I'm not even in the challenge, but I wanted to add my two cents. Since I am the queen of long stalls

I would imagine your body is re-situating (sp) itself. For whatever reason, it almost takes weight loss breaks in order to redistribute/reassign the weight when you have lost weight. It is kinda rebuilding itself.

I'd bet money that you will have more people comment on your weightloss during these stalls, and notice 'little' things like rings being looser, even shoes being looser.

I think our bodies simply won't do both at the same time, and it needs a little time to work this around.

It's very important to stay your most hydrated (esp water) when you are in that mode b/c it allows your body to do it the most effectively and easiest.

I'm not one of those that say drink a crazy amount of water, but be aware that your body is shuffling things around and it's in your best interest for it to be able to do it quickly and with the best results

Thank you for your responses and advice Katydid77 and PositiveAttitude! I will try increasing my water intake and hope that the re-situating doesn't take too much longer or just try to stay away from a scale for a while...but that is sometimes a challenge. I am measuring, the first time was on the 1st of July so I will wait a few weeks to see if that shows a loss. I feel pretty good...besides the frustration...but I am hanging in there, not throwing in the towel.

minoja75: I stalled every 20 to 25 pounds on the way down. Usually by then I was bored with what I was doing anyway, so I'd start a new plan and kind of throw everything up in the air. I don't know if it really helped but it kept me amused while I was waiting for the scale to move.

I just realized I won't be around at the end of this challenge to know if I met goal or not . I'm going on vacation . No scales! It would be great if I could meet my 10 pound goal BEFORE leaving, but that means 8 more pounds in less than 3 weeks with TOM in there somewhere...

Thanks gardnerjoy, I have been playing around with my plan to see if that will help...hopefully next weigh in will show my effort but at the rate I am losing (or not losing) I might have to revise my goal for this month.

Well, up a pound this morning after 4 days of camping at the lake. I'm thankful it was only a pound!!! (I did drink about 12 beers over the course of 4 days!) 225.6 this morning.
