The word for the past two weeks is "Plateau". I have overcome the plateau, but it was tough. So what does "plateau" mean in weight loss? It refers to a time when your body gets used to the diet and exercise routine you're on and tries to balance out the changes by slowing your weight loss and storing fat. I only lost a pound during the week of March 6 th through the 10 th , but managed to drop 2 pounds from the 13 th through the 17 th , thereby overcoming my plateau. It was a little frustrating too, because I was working hard and eating right, but my body was fighting the weight loss. The way to break away from the plateau is to change your routine…something you should do every once in a while anyway. I worked out a 4 th day, added an aquatics class last week, and ate a little less for a few days, and suddenly two more pounds were gone. Now I can resume my routine, while adding some variety to avoid future plateaus. It's okay for your weight not to change if you are just "maintaining" your weight, but if you're trying to gain or lose, you need to keep pushing harder and changing your routine until you achieve your goal.
