    Original starting weight: 169.4 (lbs)
    August starting weight: 166.5
    August goal: 161.5
    Ultimate goal: 110 to 120

    July 31: 166.5
    August 2: 165.7
    August 9: 165.7
    August 16: 165.1
    August 23: 165.1

    Total loss in August: 1.4lbs

    I'm not going to lie, I'm starting to get pretty frustrated by the stagnant scale. Does anyone have any words of wisdom for when this happens?

    I would keep track of my food here on MFP. It is a great tool and gives you caloric and nutrient value. Maybe you are getting too much of a bad thing and not enough good. Read labels. I was shocked at how much sodium is in a Lean Cuisine. Also up your exercise game a bit.

    Take body measurements. I find that my measurements go down at times when the scale does not. Ensure that you're eating at your weight loss calorie range. If you are - then try focusing on something - for example, drinking more water, or eating more veggies, or eating more protein. Just something to make you feel you're putting an effort forth. Because over time - if you're eating at your weight loss range - you will start to lose again. I've gone 4-6 weeks without losing when I've been actively trying. Maybe try taking a diet break and just maintaining for a while. Try doing different exercises from what you're currently doing. Do both cardio and ST. That's all I got! Good luck - hope you get moving down again :smiley:

    Posted to the wrong challenge! I guess I'm still asleep. One last Monday weigh in for me. I don't think I will achieve the 5lb loss, but I'll also post my August 31st weight. Just in case :smiley:
