Thanks! I just want to get to the original goal I set for myself, 135. 130 would be awesome, but I want to get to 135 just to say I reached goal! lol.

Thank you! I have tried changing up workouts, carbs, sleep habits. you name it. I think my body is happy where it is. I am, too. Just want to hit that # and tighten up. And not let the holidays take over and gain anything!

You can do it! Some days I just want to throw out my scale. I feel like at this point in the game it isn't needed, and just makes me crazy. You know you are taking care of your body.

I have been stuck at 137 since June or July. I am only a few lbs. from goal. I run 3 miles a day, HIIT 5 times a week, and elliptical on days I just want an extra burn or if the weather is bad for running. I eat 1400-1500 calories a day.

First of all, congrats on your success! Secondly, busting a plateau is an issue everyone faces. I am trying to get through it right now and turned to my sister-in-law who herself busted a lifetime plateau. After kids she went below her lowest pre-baby weight. She said jogging with weights and increasing her running speed has helped her in the past. If you don't run, now would be a good time to start. If you do, pick up the pace or do interval training. Oh, and like other posters said: cut more refined carbs out!

STRENGTH TRAINING...pick up the weights gurlie! I started weight training when I was stuck and I managed to lose 4lbs plus my arms, legs, and bootay are becoming more defined. Some times our bodies get tired of the same ole thing!
BTW I eat more carbs now than before and I still lost weight

Stop doing the HIIT or eat more than 1500 calories a day.

Yes you would be way more than 1500 calories needed if you are that close to goal. You should only be eating 10% below TDEE to lose that last little bit not more.
