It appears that my body has selected a balanced weight once again. I have settled at 165 lbs. and it has been in this range for almost a month now. This happens every several months where suddenly I will continue to lose several lbs. for about two weeks and then it will stop. I call these “Breaking Points”. The last time I was stuck at 173 lbs. Periods like these are natural where for survival reason the body holds on to body fat because burning to much fat too quickly sets off alarms of danger. The key to getting past these times is to simply continue with your routine until your body feels safe in your current weight and decides that it is safe once again to start burning additional fat. It always happens and will continue to happen until you finally reach your perfect healthy weight.
The funny thing about the breaking point is that with continued muscle growth your weight may even increase some. As long as you are staying true to your diet and exercise routine, don’t worry about the scale. As you continue to increase your demand for energy by taking your workout routine to the next level, eventually you will start seeing loses until your body reaches it’s next breaking point. I believe my next one will be at around 160 lbs and I may not see this happen for several months.
