Broken stall

Well folks, my stall is officially over!  I was not worried about this one too much because I have been through a few before and I know how it works.  But this time I did something different, I actively worked to break it early.  I ramped up my exercise routine significantly and started drinking water like it was my job.  And sure enough within two days, the scale starting going down.  

Now I have been exercising all along, but I have admittedly been pretty lazy lately and just doing the same old routine and not pushing myself at all.  So I guess my body wasn't getting the same benefit.  I started working out a lot harder and just a bit longer.  I am exhausted this week because of it, but it feels really good.  I am sleeping really well and I feel stronger!  

So I didn't lose any weight for almost 2 weeks, then BOOM! 5 lbs in 4 days.  Weird huh?  I made up all my lost time super fast.  I now know that I need to make sure to keep up with my hydration as well as challenge my body by not getting lazy with the exercise.

Thanks for posting this. I'm four months out and in this stall from hell. I keep blaming myself, trying to find some fault of mine even though I know this is normal. I'm going to try more water and I have been doing the extra exercise. That should give me something to focus on. Congrats on breaking your stall, I know how good that feels.
