I came across this blog post that had some eye-opening things to say about weight loss plateaus. Here’s a quote that sums it up nicely:
Dieters need to know that the short-term goals of a weight loss program are to run into as many weight loss plateaus as necessary to hit that “final” weight loss plateau (unless the goal is to diet down to thin air). After all, the endpoint goal is a plateau of sorts; a purposeful stasis of the progress that was made.
How did you guys view your plateaus when you were losing the weight? Did you see them as setbacks on a journey that should have been a continual drop in pounds? Did you recognize these “necessary periods of equilibrium” for what they were–real evidence of progress?
