This is so very odd, I am not losing on the scale, but my clothes that is a different story. It is a good thing I never threw away clothes when they got to tight, because some fit, some are loose. This is so silly because the scale is NOT moving I can not get off the plateau. I keep biking my head off and some walking and strength exercises, but the scale, and it is a relatively new one, refuses to budge. grrrr I will stick with this because I must and because I have resolved to be more stubborn than this stubborn fat. Mind you I have not gone down so much in clothes except a few clothes just are really fitting loose and I am glad I do not have to spend money to find clothes to wear to work, just keep shopping in my closet until I find something that fits for now. Just want the scale to make some progress too. The jeans I wore today, I have not put on in 25 years, if they are the ones I think they are.

    You keep riding that bike. Muscle has more weight to it than fat! So your body must be breaking down the fat and you are gainning muscle mass ! WOOHOO !!!

    Sooner than you know I figure that you will start to see a change on the scale also !

    I do have to watch that I eat enough. Today my daughter called and wanted me to meet her at Subway for lunch. As is my habit I ordered a footlong, half to eat for this meal and the other to eat tomorrow. So I wrapped the 2nd half and put it in the plastic bag, this is good because once upon a time I could eat the whole thing. Anyway I start eating the half that is today's lunch after only a few bites I know I am in trouble as I am already feeling full. I struggle to eat a few more bites, but get to the halfway mark on that half and I am done, do I wrap it up thinking I will eat it when I get home, which of course I hand it off to my garbage disposal son and in a couple bites it has disappeared after he has consumed the entire 12" of the one I purchased for him. Am I eating enough, probably not and this is the problem I suspect, once again I am not eating enough but what to do, I am full, I can not eat beyond the point of full. Especially this past week I fee stuffed only after a few bites of any meal. But I do continue to exercise and change it up to keep the body confused.

    What could be happening is the the muscles are building up and becoming stronger--thus the clothes fit better--and muscles do weigh more than fat does---know we hate hearing that as we want that darn scale to move---try taking a 2 week break from the scale, keep up the exercise, and see where you can tweak the food intake---it could also be that you are now burning more calories than you are eating and the body sees itself in starvation mode---we do have to watch that, too.

    You are doing great to be losing inches!! I am again on a plateau but my clothes are again getting a little looser as well. i always look at as my skin needs to catch up with the weight loss so I am getting a little smaller but remain the same weight. It will break eventually. It will for you as well. Hang in there!! Keep shopping in your closet!! I did today again!
