Has anyone hit a plateau yet with their weight? I lost 25 pounds really fast. I have been that same weight now for 2 weeks. I have cut out soda, started eating more healthy and nothing has budged... Anyone else? Any idea why?
It might be hormones. If you don't have cycles back yet, that could be all hormone-related. I lost 20 lbs the first week, then was stuck at 160 lbs for a week and now it's started coming off again, I'm at 156 right now and that's since Sunday I've lost those 4 lbs. I am thinking it's more water weight but who knows, I'll take it!
After my last baby I didn't get cycles back (I wasn't breastfeeding at all) until he was 6 months old. I just kept waiting and waiting and nothing was happening, I wasn't on birth control. And that entire 6 months I think I only lost 3-4 lbs. I was working out and eating properly and it just wouldn't budge. Well, wouldn't you know, I finally got a period and then BAM the weight came off really fast; I lost everything in about 5 months after that.
So beware the hormones!! They can play into the whole weight loss thing.
