Plateau – how do I break it?

I have been faithfully eating clean and exercising. The same damn kilo keeps going and coming back, and have been for the last two months! What am I doing wrong?

It is pretty discouraging. It is also hard not to compare myself to others, there are tons of awesome people out there on the same journey, and I can’t help to feel a little bit jealous of their progress when they share their loss for the week. I am happy for them, honestly am. I just don’t like what I see on the scales. Damn scales.

So how am I going to measure my progress when the scales are not moving down? How do you break a very stubborn plateau?

To keep doing what I am doing is obviously not breaking it, my body is quite comfy at the moment or so it seems. Do I eat less? More? Do I exercise less? More?

HELP!

  1. When I hit a plateau on the scale I get super bummed out too. My friends and family told me to measure myself, because even though I am not losing weight, I was losing inches. Turns out they were right. Try not to put so much importance on the scale, instead look at your measurements, how your clothes fit, and — most importantly — how you feel. I know it’s easier said than done, but keep it up and you will break through that plateau!
