    Oh, one more thought. A lot of times when I am working with a client I will tell them to not pay much attention to the scale. It is a good idea to weigh yourself daily, unless you are becoming obsessed with the number. Sometimes our bodies enter into a sort of shift, where we stop losing pounds becuase we are putting on muscle. Sometimes its a good idea to take photos (like you have been), measurements or the way your clothes are fitting to use as a secondary measurement system.

    Hey, I saw your post on another person's page and thought I might be able to help. I noticed that you said you have hit a plateau, which is really common. As a trainer I would definately advise against going below your calorie range. Going back to when we were hunters and gatherers, we would sometimes go without food for long periods of time--so our bodies designed a "starvation" mode that kicks in when it thinks we are going through a famine. If you have been losing a consistent amount of weight (16 pounds in a month is awesome!) then your body is having a hard time catching up and has probably slipped into this mode. Some things you could try would be 1) taking a break from restricting calories too low, and exercising as well. sometimes our biggest drops come after we give our bodies a break. It seems counter intuitive, but as a trainer I have seen this work time and time again. Usually the break only needs to last a week--and during this break you should be eating near the ceiling of your calorie levels. This is sometimes called calorie cycling. 2) lift weights. If you usually do a cardio routine, but have skipped weights, add some in. If you usually lift heavy, switch it up and lift light weights with more reps and vice versa. Switching it up will help confuse your body. Your body could simply be bored of your routines. You should consider changing your workout patterns up every few weeks to give your brain, and your body a break. 3) Make certain you are keeping up with your food journals and including everything from the sugar you put in your coffee to the mayo on your sandwich. Every little bit adds up.

    Anyway, hope this gives you some ideas!
