Should I be concerned? Need Suggestions
Yes, mars2kids, I have the entire P90X series. Love them!

I try to mix things up with both my excercise and my diet. In the past I have found that if I get too hard on myself and regimented with my food intake, etc, I fall off the wagon. This is a lifestyle change.

My ultimate goal is to be feeling confident in a bathing suit at the end of August! Heading to Mexico! If I could get this last 10lbs of extra fat off of my in the next 3 months(from the looks of it, all on my tummy!) I would be thrilled!

Should I be concerned? Need Suggestions
Thank you. I had thought I would be seeing the scale go up and down with all of the loss of fat, gain of muscle. I had heard that your body can only do one at a time. (perhaps false info)

I still have quite a bit of fat along my middle. That seems to be where the last 10lbs or remaining fat is sitting!

Should I be concerned? Need Suggestions
It has been nearly 4 weeks since I last saw a drop in my weight. I am 5 3, and I am currently counting / watching my calorie intake. Typically, I try to stay around 1600 calories.

Each week I work out 4-6 days each week. I try to do either 1 hour of P90X Plyo, or weights, 1 hour of Bob Harper (that guy is CRAZY), do the stairs (about 2200 stairs per session in 40 minutes) or I hit the treadmill for no less than 30 minutes . I certainly mix it up and I am certainly not slacking off.

My worry is weight has not moved. It has been stale here at 136/138 lbs for almost a month!! I do see definition in my arms. My pant size has decreased from a size 10/12 down to a 8. I am happy with the progress but I had thought that weight should fluctuate up and down as you lose fat but then up when you gain muscle? Is it possible to sit almost completely still for an entire month?

Does anyone have any suggestions that may kick things up a notch? My trip to Mexico is about 3 months away. Smile Thank you for any feedback/suggestions you may have.
