Ht. 5'1", Start: 204 lb, Today: 147 lb (BMI: 28), Goal: 115 lb - I'm starting to think that the 140's is a plateau period in my weight loss goals. I can't seem to lose much right now. I'm eating and exercising the same so I'm not sure what's going on. Has anyone ever experienced a plateau, where it seems like no matter what you do, you're stuck at or near the same weight for a long time? If so, are there any tips/things I can do to push myself past this hurdle?

well hello there i can give you some tips eat as little as possible and eat slowly so your brain tells you that your stomach is full also dont forget your exercises walk alot and try not to drink soda or juice water will make you loose weight faster or green tea with hot water,well try your best and eat less.

That is actually quite possibly the reason I'm stuck. I haven't switched things up in awhile (just doing the 30 day shred mainly). Now that summer's here, I'll have to try outside sports like swimming, tennis, etc. Thanks for the suggestion!

Hi Ally, I definitely know where you are coming from. I started at about 180 and I'm down to about 139 right now. I was stuck at 145 for a long time, and like you I was eating well and exercising. Just recently, I joined a new gym which had a treadclimber machine, which I had never used before. In 3 weeks I have lost 6 pounds! I think the trick is not necessarily this particular machine, but changing up your work out routine. I'm not sure what you typically do, but I was definitely stuck in a gym rut, doing the same type of things everytime. I suggest finding a new cardio machine or class or trying a different type of workout to boost your weight loss! Best of luck!
