I have had many plateaus during my life. It is hard to understand them, at least it is for me. There are some days and weeks that I know I should be losing weight, but the weight stays the same.

The one thing that seems to help me a little, is to walk a little bit more than normal. I know that sounds simple, but it seems to help me a little.

^^ agreed. i'm guessing adding a little more fat burning by adding extra time / distance to your walk probably helps kick ur system back into fat loss mode.

After long, hard dieting your metabolic rate decreases and a break is needed to up-regulate your hormones again (definitely get back to working out, too).
