What did it? Did you tweak anything?

I tweeked a lot of things but one of the major ones was adding back my protein. When I stalled I started to think about how my body had changed from the 20 pound loss and increased level of exercise. it was time to recalculate my macro's. Protein was the one thing way too low. so now less fat more protein. and more calories/protein on my workout days. got to feed the work. I range from 70 grams to 90

it is unfortunate that my exercise bike work is curtained. the physical therapist ordered every other day. every time I get on it my toes and calf muscles severely cramp up as I do it or right after I get off... undoing his work. My calf muscles in both legs shortened up years ago and are pulling my entire body out of wack. Each week he is adding more area's to stretch. So I have several area's to work on but more focus down there.

thanks Kimberlie, it has taken all week to lose all that water weight and get a loss, but I really think things will work out.

Maybe you are getting cramps because you are dehydrated? Or maybe overdoing it. Just a thought. Are you getting enough vitamins and minerals too? A lot of people put cramps down to lack of magnesium. I think salts in general is more the thing but i accept that your bodies disability or whatever has probably something to do with it too but its might just be worthwhile considering all these other things and making sure they are optimum.

Your attitude towards this is very inspiring. And I find your information educational and helpful. You got this and are helping some people along the way. :)

I find that if I do not quit the plateau is always broken. Sometimes it takes a month.

thanks everyone it has been an interesting journey. Pattience nice thought but as I explained above my muscles shortened years ago and this is an ongoing issue left untreated for over a decade. My doctors when I originally told of my ripped tendon had no helpful answers for me. I have food sensitivities, which give me a multitude of issues, some are knots all over in my muscles. I also have Fibromyalgia, for me this is caused by these food sensitivities. My awesome doctor that was a specialist in this field moved out of the county one day and I never found anyone as knowledgeable since.

Good work on dropping more protein into the mix! It sounds like its helping - obviously 😊

yes that and not chasing the stall!

As to fibromyalgia, I'd never thought of this before just now... power lifting's focus is on (1) developing the CNS to be adaptive as you progress and (2) building the long, lean muscles and tendons (as opposed to the shorter, bulkier muscles of other workout types). Given these two factors (and there are many more that don't really apply here), does this not help with keeping the pain/tightness at bay? Does the fibromyalgia prevent you from doing this/hinder your progress? Is this even your workout type? I just saw your comment about the exercise bike, but I seem to recall you being a pro-lifting supporter...
