Hormonal? Do you weigh your food? I'm guilty sometimes of 'guesstimating' on # of ounces of protein etc etc. Would it be helpful for a week or two to be completely anal and weight EVERYTHING on an electronic scale to ensure that you are not over-estimating? What about walking -- are you engaging in long walks? I'll be interested to see what my scale says tomorrow at work --- since I haven't weighed since last Thursday. I don't feel as though I've lost any, but we'll see.

I also have this theory that our bodies are holding onto some fat in this cold climate (I'm up in Canada). I haven't even been out walking over the past two weeks because it has been very cold (-10 - -24). Once spring weather arrives, I'll be out walking and cycling as I always am.
But darn, the plateaus are frustrating, aren't they?!!@@@!!!
