Besides not losing weight, how do you know if you're plateaued?

For example, if you feel really full after eating only 1200 calories, does that mean your metabolism has re-adjusted? What are some signs?

Or your stomach has shrunk to accomodate the smaller amount of food you've probably been eating.

Especially if you were overeating a lot before, your stomach stretched to accomodate that amount of food and "stayed" that way.

now that you're eating less, it "destretched"

OP here

9:07, Actually it was me, the topic starter, who made the grammar correction lol. After I posted it though I read it and went D'oh! I should have identified myself.

9:11, Good point! Thanks.

I know I'm certainly headed toward a plateau when I've drifted off in the middle of a workout! I often catch myself just kind of going through the motions and not really challenging myself - it's at that point I remind myself - if I'm going to go through the trouble of getting myself to the gym I should at least make it count!

The 1200 calorie/full thing is the same for me - it's just a sign that I've adjusted to eating less food and it's definitely a good thing :)

I know I'm plateauing when the weights are getting too light. I then change up my exercise routine, which is about once a month.
