Restarted my journey in September. Typically have lost about 1 lb a week, but I've too been in a plateau right now for 3 weeks. Not the first time its happened to me this time around. It just seems for me, I lose a bit, then I stay the same for a few more weeks, then lose again. I worked with a trainer in the fall who constantly told me that the scale should not be the end all be all. I have lost inches while the scale has stayed the same. Her advise to me was to focus on the goal, put my head down and NOT STOP. Progress may be slow, but IT IS PROGRESS. Take measurements to see how you really are losing. Tight pants that don't feel quite so tight anymore is proof that your scale isn't the only way to see you are losing weight.
I know. Easy to say it and hard to execute when the darn scale wont budge. I feel your pain. My scale didn't give me the number I wanted today. But I know I can't afford to go to McDonalds about it. Please keep trying! Good luck !

Hey it’s been 11 days since I started to diet and exercise continuously but every morning I get up on that scale hoping atleast I lost 0.5 kg or 0.2 even but I ended putting a kg up or it doesn’t change at all. It’s so frustrating

11 days isn't enough time for results and getting on the scale everyday won't help you. If you're exercising and eating healthy keep doing just that but you need to factor in the weight of your muscles (can gain weight because you're exercising), water weight, morning/night, if you've ate and a bunch more. I barely ever look at the scale because of all this, if you want to see results look in the mirror or take before vs after pictures, how do you feel? Do you feel good? Maybe more energized? Stepping on a scale (especially everyday) is the only thing that will demotivate you, it's way too early for you to see any results, keep sticking to it, you're going to do great!
