Losing weight isn't easy. It takes will power and the ability to change what you've been doing for years and years. So congratulations! But if you find yourself stuck or plateauing, these are things to look at to get you back on track.

You’re not drinking enough water.

You’re not eating enough protein.

You exercise but then spend most of the day sitting. Experts recommend setting a timer on the computer to remind you to move every hour.

You work out regularly, but end up eating more because you feel you “earned it.”

You’re stressed out, activating cortisol which triggers the fight-or-flight response and is an appetite stimulant.

Also don’t always focus on your weight. What matters is how your clothes fit, how you feel, and how much you can do!
