It is perfectly normal as long as you are staying hydrated and getting in the Protein required. Stalls in weight loss is normal and should not be cause for concern. Weigh yourself no more than once a week to avoid being terribly frustrating as fluctuations are very normal.

Hang in there.

How many calories are you taking in per day? Carbs? Protein? How much Water are you drinking each day? What are you doing for exercise? Are you logging your food and drink?

It very well might be a stall. They happen and happen frequently for me, but in order to give you any advice, it would be helpful to have some more information...

According to several in another group I am in make sure your getting your protein...all of it... many of those who were having stalls stepped up their Protein and saw changes quickly.

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.
