Yesterday I was pumped that one of the size 10 shorts I bought back in January (for motivation, I'm a size 12), I put on and could button! Win!
But I stepped on the scale this morning and it said 183.4! I've been bouncing between 189-193 for the last month. Plateau is gone, I'm hoping consistency will return. I was happy that some of the inches were coming off, though.

I just wanted to say, if you're stuck, just keep moving and eating right. Don't give up!! Not gonna lie--I felt like it once or twice, but I knew I never wanted to go back to where I came from.

Yay for not giing up. 

I hope my plateau is over too... (seems I lose for a month or two then plateau and lose nothing for 5 or 6 weks- then lose again)  I have gone from 190.5 creeped back to 193 and dropped back to 190.5 this month...ugh.  I will not stop going though- I'm too close to hitting 50 lbs lost ;)

 That's awesome!

I needed this post today. I was so on the verge of giving up because of this plateau I'm at now. I'm stuck at 185. WILL NOT budge below that. You give me hope that if I keep doing what I'm doing, it will eventually start coming off again. So thank you!

Hang in there, friend! It played with my mind, but well worth it now:).
You're at almost 50 lbs lost? That is inspiring to me! Very big milestone there.

That's awesome, how tall are you if you don't mind my asking.  I would be estatic to be a size 12...I'm currently a 22W.  I am 5'6"....and I would probably be happy as a clam at 180 if it meant I was wearing a size 12. :)

I am 5'10! When I started out, I was a 16. Size 12 isnt bad! I'm happy to have gotten this far. Tbh I don't know the last time I was near a size 10. Pre pregnancy? 6 yrs ago lol! It seems ALL of my weight is in my stomach.
