You sure were'nt eating very much before!
OK, here are the facts:
- 1/2 of low fat cottage cheese has 90 calories
- 1 tablespoon of natural peanut butter has 95 calories
How many times a day are you eating this? If a "few" means 3, you've added about 600 calories to your daily intake. 1400 calories total isn't a lot, but you've gotten your body used to 800. I think you need to back off a little of the extra calories and introduce them more gradually.
Explanation #2: Are you using any non-scale measures of your progress? You may not be in a stall at all! You may be building muscle and dropping body fat at an equivalent rate. Quite possible for the first few months of a weight training program. When I first started lifting heavy, I weighed 135 pounds with a body fat reading of 27%. After three months (and I was eating more
), I still weighed 135, but my body fat % was 21, and my pants size had gone down by two sizes. Definite progress, but the scale said I was in a stall. I'll take that kind of stall any day
Falling down is not failure....Failure is staying down.

It isn't about waiting for the storm to pass...
It's about learning to dance in the rain.
