Leo has some good tips. One of the things that usually helps me break out of a stall is to calorie cycle - eat high end some days and low end others. It's helped me break off of a plateau more than once.

Doing my best...one day at a time.

Yeah, there is so much information out there it's really hard to tell what to do and what will work

I'm not sure I'd consider 3 weeks a stall, if it went a few more weeks, then I'd start to consider changing things.

I don't know anything about your calories or exercise history which are all related

But... For me and my journey and what I've done recently.

1. Review the sparkpeople trackers to reflect what I'm actually doing - Calories burned and consumed
2. I had to get real honest about what I eat, especially weekends
3. Get back to the basics with calories and food -- salads with protein for lunch, more fruits etc...
4. Give it a few weeks to see if it is really working

The nutrition and fitness trackers on sparkpeople are related, so that might be a good place to take a close look at and tweak to make sure everything is in sync with what you are actually doing.


One of the hardest things for me is to "stick to the plan" when I don't see results right away. I'll abandon things before it starts working, or kicks back in.

Everyone is different, so what works for me, might not work for you.
There is no silver bullet that works for everyone.

You might have to try a few different things, but I only change one thing, give it a few weeks then start the process again to see what else to change. It is a journey.

But, don't give up, keep trying different things and have fun with it.

I get mixed messages and advice on how to break the dreaded stall.... Increase calories, decrease calories, do more cardio, add more strength training. I can't find proven research to back up any one course of action. I've been stuck for 3 weeks now and am a little frustrated.

What do you do to get the scale moving again?
