I have officially hit a month stall and it’s bringing me down. ... I have increased Water, workouts, and cut calories and still nothing. Getting discouraged.

stalls are a normal part of weight loss. They typically last 1-3 weeks, and you're likely to hit several more of them on your journey. I didn't cut or increase calories - I just stuck to my plan. It'll eventually break, even if you just stick to your food plan. My first stall lasted two weeks, and once it broke, I dropped like 6-8 lbs in a couple of days. I didn't make any changes at all - just tried to stay off the scale for a few days so I wouldn't be frustrated by it!

This is completely normal. My first stall lasted 3 weeks. Then I realized my weight loss cycle was to expect a stall every 2 weeks. I had to look at the total weight lost during the month. To keep from becoming discouraged, I weighed once per week. I had surgery Feb 2020 and my average weight loss now is approx 7 pounds a month.

I definitely just screen shotted this paragraph for when I throw mini scale-related tantrums.

I’m very discouraged. I’m going on a month of a stall and it’s going up and down but not consistently down, can hardly eat and increasing Water and exercise and I feel like I’m back where I started.... I can’t fail at this too 😞

yep. In fact, most people have their first major stall at around three weeks out, so you're late to the party!

the way to deal with them is to just stick to your plan and stay off the scale if you have to. They usually last 1-3 weeks. It WILL break, and probably soon if it's already been two weeks for you.
