So you've been working out and eating right and everything seems to be going as planned. Mainly you know because of how miserably tired and hungry you feel.
You get on the scale thinking "I must've lost at least 100 lbs this week."
But then you're +2 lbs or +5 lbs. After a big WTF and getting on again. Nothing. You take the scale battery out and put it back in- HA! The scale is your arch nemesis and your best friend. That bitch!
Oh well, time to give up. You've tried as hard as you can and this is a serious plateau, there's not much else you can do.
HA! If you agreed to the above statement, you are NOT ready to lose weight. Most weeks you lose, but others you gain. It's inevitable.
But here's a trick- wait for a big poop! jk.
There is no trick. Just keep doing what your doing, if your plateau is making you become frenemies with your scale, try something different.
BUT I LIKE ROUTINE! Pick a new routine, cut a little more carbs or workout a little longer.
You know they say when you work out you gain muscle so you should never weigh yourself anyway? It's semi true. It's good to measure and see how stuff fits, but don't stop weighing in.
I gained 2 lbs this week- GRRrrr- but in a couple days I could lose 4lbs- just waiting on that really big poop!
