For the past couple months, I've been losing consistently about 2 lbs per week. I've been weighing myself twice a week which I know you're not supposed to do but whatever. It's what I'm doing and it's been working.
A week ago, I gained 3 lbs back (my scale measures body fat % so I know I'm not just gaining muscle) and this week I'm at the same weight. I haven't changed anything. If anything I'm exercising more and eating less.
So I'm really discouraged and frustrated because what was working really well for me has suddenly stopped working and I'm not even sure what to do about it.
Please don't tell me to stop looking at the scale. That's my motivator. And I know this isn't just a normal fluctuation because I weighed myself the days ago and again this morning and it's been consistent.
Is this one of those plateaus people talk about? How do I get past it and start losing weight again?
