The dreaded plateau! We all know the frustration that we feel when we are trying to lose weight, but the scale just won’t budge!
How many times have you found yourself in this situation? You make sacrifices all week. You don’t have a piece of cake at your niece’s birthday party. You order a salad instead of what you really want when you go out to dinner. You did everything you could to stay on track. Weigh-in day comes around and you step on the scale and tell yourself, this is why I made those sacrifices! In 3 seconds all those sacrifices will be worth it! But then you step on the scale and to your horror, you find that the number hasn’t gone down – in fact, it has gone up!!
