Ugh! I don't know what the deal is with my body but I'm suck at 139lbs and have been for weeks! For the last 6 days especially I have been counting calories, taking my vitamins and have worked out 4 times and the scale went from 139.2 to 139.4.... not cool.

I know I just need to stick with it but it would be nice to see at least a little progress. Help!

Yes, stick to your plan. I weighed the same for a whole month, and finally lost one from one day to the next. I will be very strict for some days now... The key to weight loss seems to be DON'T GIVE UP.
Btw, you may lose measures without losing weight, so don't worry and think of sthg else... Time will go by more quickly.

Thanks Inglesita64! Hopefully I'm losing inches even thought I'm not losing lbs!

I hope it starts coming off soon. I have never had trouble losing in the past if I was sticking with plan but this time around I am finding also that my weight just goes up when there is absolutely NO reason for it to. Its harder to stick with it when it seems as if the results are not happening.

I hope others have some suggestions for you. I will check for replies too!

Finally moving! 137.2 this morning.
girl81- I don't have a standard meal plan right now. I have cut out almost all refined sugars and am concentrating on lean proteins and vegetables. Also counting calories and keeping it under about 1300

I also in stucks-ville. I did a 6 week program that included exercising 3 times a week, writing down what you eat, eating 5-6 small healthy meals (snacks) a day. And I lost...

NOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTHHHHHHHHHHHIIIIIIIIINNNNNNNNGGGG GGGGGG

I just joined crossfit so I am hoping that will shock my system into losing. It is dreadfully hard. I've only done 3 classes so far and it is TORTURE!

Oh and did I sulk and eat pizza tonight? Yes, yes I did. BUT I HAD BEEN PERFECT FOR SO LOOONNNGGG

Oh and isn't calorie cycling where one day you eat (for example only) 1200 and then the next day 1400 and then the next day 1200? I believe that's what it is. My friend did that anyhow.

Yeah but it need to have bigger gap !

Usually I used to lose weight on 1100-1300 calories.
Then, like almost everybody, I hit a plateau ! So I was depressed, my weight was staying the same for weeks, then one day I binged... I'm not a binger so it was a shock ! Let's say it was about a maintenance intake : 1800-2000 calories. The day after, I stepped on the scale, super anxious : I was down 1 pound! And my weight dropped even more once I was back to my normal losing intake.

My plateaux were easy to break, as one high-cals day was often enough, but it's normal if you need a couple of days : 1300 cals, 1700, 1500, 1100, 1600 ! It's scary to up your intake but it's so worth it. At the end of the week, the total calories should be the same. Don't be afraid to up your cals a lot then drop them, you need to shock your body!

EDIT: I didn't compensate with exercise!

I hit a plateaux once for two weeks and I binged, the next day I find I'm 2 lbs lighter it is scary at first cuz you think by the end of the week your going to be the same weight or heavier. Try it! I don't think you will regret.
I also overdid it on the calories today maybe around 2200 so I'll be on a 700-800 cal tomorrow and exercise
