i think plateaus really screw with our mind. every time i've hit a plateau in the past i've told myself that was it...i couldn't lose anymore. i was just meant to be fat! this time i've tried to look at it differently (with a lot of support from others experiences here) and just stuck it out....not given up....and i have kept on losing. i hit a plateau and i was still like 180 i think......and i was like there's no way that i can be 180 and not be able to lose more...it's just not physically possible. so, just try to put your mind to it ...stick with it....and the pounds will come off, i promise!
