I got stuck on the same weight for ten days, even though I was following my diet to a "T", but I just kept at it. The key is to not get discouraged, sometimes it just takes a little while for your body to start doing what you want it to.

Thank you! I was so excited about the weight coming off that I weigh myself everyday, thats not good because you will get discouraged, so I said to only weigh myself every week after today!

Good idea. A "stall" isn't really a stall unless it lasts for more than 2 weeks. Use that as a guideline.
If you think my post is too abrasive, harsh, or offensive, you're:
A) Wrong.
B) Too sensitive.
C) Not going to receive an apology for pointing it out.

I fluctuate by as much as 5 pounds in a single day - take the daily weigh in with a grain of salt and look for trends over time. I know it's nice to see a loss and frustrating to see a gain, and if it's too much, weigh in weekly instead, maybe?

I'm currently closing in on a two week stall, but stick with it! Someone replied to me that they had been stalled for a month, but losing had started up again. Hang in there!

My calorie accountant only shows me losses on thursday and friday. sometimes she waits for a whole week before she will gove me good numbers. I don't worry about it I stick to the plan because in the long run it will work. I know that while I am losing fat I am gaining muscle as well, and muscle is more dense than fat. So as long as my clothes are not getting tighter or if they are actually getting looser, then all is well. I also use the mirror to make judgements on my progress when the accountant seems to be on vacation, like seeing muscle definition where there was none.

if you have been exercising and gaining muscle mass, muscle is heavier but ultimately helps your metabolism to burn more calories. so you may be gaining muscle mass and the scale reflects this, but your clothes and a mirror reflect a different reality.
if you eat the exact same thing daily, switch it up...
time of month, water retention etc can definitely influence the scale even if you are doing everything right. keep at it...
