How Long Does A Plateau

Sign in to follow this  


I have lost 100 lbs in 7 months. The problem is I can't lose no more. It's been a month or so and I can't get passed the 100 lbs. How long does a Plateau last. I'm still doing the same thing as I was when I was losing. I even increased my walking and added some free weights. Anybody with the same issue. Thanks in advanced

My plateau lasted 6 months, I did the same as you added more activity, logged everything I ate. I did not cheat, eat junk food, etc but I was stuck. I had an adjustment the end of January and have dropped 23 lbs. I recently added working out with a trainer and he has me doing weight training 3 days week and 45 minutes of cardio where I get my heart rate into my target zone. I don't know where you are in your WL journey but I am near my goal and it seems that I am having to work really hard to get these last pounds off. My body seems to need an adjustment time everytime I drop a significant amount of weight, and usually when I am not losing pounds i seem to be losing inches. Please don't become discouraged, as long as you are eating correctly and exercising the weight will eventually come off.Good luck.
