    I don't know if it's the fact of using a lot of ice in my shakes that's causing my weight loss to slow down or if this is where it starts to get harder.

    I've been losing 2-3 lbs lately and it's getting me pissed off and worried because it's nearly May and I want to be able to refeed and practise maintaining before I go to Morocco.

    Has anyone else hit a platue and if so, what can you do to push the weight loss further?

    Well, a plateau is where you stay the same weight for a few weeks. You just want to up your losses. I'd suggest upping your exercise so you're burning even more calories than normal so your losses increase. I don't think the amount of ice you take would matter unless you're not drinking enough water as well?

    Ah ah - be careful with exercise! If you are burning too many calories your body can put itself into starvation mode therefore losses can decrease. Ive started a thread on it and somebody explained this - have a look for it.

    Honey 2-3lbs loss a week is amazing!!!!
    I think you are not getting big losses cuz you are now so light!
    Look at how heavy you started compared to how heavy you are now.

    The bigger you are the more you lose quicker - its just the bodys way thats all.

    Also certain types of exercises will be building muscle, and muscle weighs heavier than fat. Although the scales have slowed down, maybe your inch loss is greater so it might be worth measuring yourself regularly.

    i found that i had got to the stage where i was losing 2lbs a week and i upped my exercise. i joined the gym and lost 4lbs that week. and this week i have already lost 4lbs and i have 4 days left till weigh in!
    but losing 2-3lbs a week is really good considering you are a lot lighter now.

    ur ticker shows that you have 39lbs left to lose, just remember that u have got a month and a half before the beginning of may and you can lose alot by then. and remember when we talked about stopping when you feel more comfortable with your size etc? see how you get on till april and then consider refeeding and maintaining. you will continue to lose some weight during refeeding and maintenance if you carry on exercising. dont be too hard on yourself honey, i really wouldnt call this a plateau coz you are losing! xx you'll be fine.. pwomise :p

    No it doesnt!

    Its like saying whats heavier - a tonne of bricks or a tonne of feathers?!!!!

    They both weigh the same!

    The thing with muscle and fat is fat is more spread out and takes up much more room where as muscle is more toned and together therefore taking up less room in your body!

    5lbs of fat is the same weight as 5lbs of muscle.

    I know that now too, I also read the other thread where we got the brilliant information, nice to learn new things instead of going along with the old myths that have been drilled into us.

    i had about 4 weeks where i lost 3lbs per week then suddenly in one week i lost 6lbs.

    Trust me that weight is going to drop off when you least expect it.

    Thanks hunny. I just think of it that way, I mean losing 2lbs seems pathetic for me. I'm close to target and my body decides to be a total ***** and slow down the weight loss.
