Here's what I've heard about breaking a plateau
Here's what I've heard about breaking a plateau, but I've not tried it myself:
- gradually increase your calorie intake slightly, while closely watching your weight. When you've added 500 cal/day OR gained 3lbs (whichever comes first), hold that calorie level for a few weeks. You are looking for a higher calorie count that let's you stabilize at your current weight.
- after a few weeks at this higher calorie count, go back to the lower count you've used for weight loss and you should see the weight start to fall again.
That was then:
November, 2008: 315 lbs
November, 2009: 215 lbs
May 28, 2011: 254 lbs
This is now:
July 24, 2011: 237.5 (-16.5 lbs)
October 12, 2011: 222 (mini-goal)
September 1, 2012: 145 (goal)
