I know it seems I have... The only saving grace may be that I am retaining tons of water from eating soup, although i have been drinking a lot of water. My rings are tight on my finger and i mean tight to where they are making a print, and really my rings are just snug enough to where they won't fall off, so for them to leave a print means i have to be retaining.

My weight isn't going up, but it's not coming off either. I need to see 175 on my scale by March 4th lol.

lol i thought i hit a plateau but I guess Jillian has proved me wrong lol. I'm definately staying at the same # so I guess that means I need to change my workout routine. I'm going to try fruits/ veggies for lunch and breakfast and then a healthy dinner. Maybe my system needs a shock or somehting I don't know lol. Hopefully I'll figure it out.

I know I have hit a plateau. I have been roughly the same weight for almost a year. I lost 30 lbs pretty easily ( I was 180 lbs). Everyone warned the last 20 lbs would be a whole different story.

I may dip below 150, but it lasts a day or so before one of the million factors of life may add back a couple of pounds to put me right back at 150.

I guess I can officially say I'm done worrying about it though. I'm eating good (ok, on most days when my DH doesn't convince me to cheat a bit), I work out, and I drink so much water that I spend more time in the bathroom than I do with my family.

I keep in mind I'm toning up as I'm losing body fat. Muscle weights more than fat. At least, I think it does. I'm pretty sure it does. That's why I take pics of my body rather than weight myself now.
I always tell people, the proof is in the pics! Numbers on a scale mean nothing.
Actually, I think I'll remove my weight loss ticker and take my stupid scale and toss it in a closet. (DH might be a bit upset if I threw it away. He does do weekly weight ins).

yup yup
I have
but I think I just need to work out more. I think that the first chunk came off rather easily and now I need to really work at it.
