any little tricks?

So I've been pretty good at the exercise thing, and really good at the diet thing... and I've lost weight...but I hit a plateau! I've been at the same weight for a month now, after a constant pattern of losing 1 pound a week. I've been trying to change things up and do interval training to boost my metabolism, and change up my foods so my body doesnt get too used to things... but nothing is helping! I'm just curious if anyone has any little tips or tricks that worked for them to boost their weight loss? I cant really add on more exercise time because i have a full time job and its hard enough for me to squeeze in the daily work out as it is.

look for lower calorie foods to replace your curent one.
skim milk instead of 2% milk
Baked chips instead of reg
water instead of soda
look for lower calorie bread, and dressing, etc

that should help without changing what you are eating now

Most of us are already doing those things.

For me, carbs make me gain weight. (I know people say it's all about calories in versus calories out, but honestly, if I eat 200 cals of pasta vs. 200 cals of protein, my body can tell the difference, and I gain vs. lose.) "Play" around with your food for a bit, and see if you can recognize any gain/lose patterns relative to the type of food you eat. For some people it's sugar, for others it's dairy, or carbs... Hopefully this helps.

Try a different KIND of exercise. If you normally walk/jog, do biking or swimming. Try pilates or yoga. Take an exercise class. Try working out with a friend. Do little exercises that you can add to your day - butt clenches while standing in line or sitting at your desk, lunges or squats when on the phone. If you are not doing weight lifting - DO IT! Add muscle, use more calories.

You might be at a point where your adding more muscle mass and your weight has stagnated but your fat may still be coming off. I don't weigh myself because when I workout and use weights my muscle mass won't let me get below 175 pounds. If I didn't lift weights I could get down to 170 pounds or less but I look a little scrawny if I don't have the muscle. Don't worry I think a lot of people have your problem because they only go by the scale. You have other factors that make up your weight also like water, so don't worry if you don't lose for a month. Hang in there
