    I'm also hoping to lose about 20kg.I'm down 6kg in 3 months. But I think I have hit a plateau.
    I have been doing the same thing this whole time but mixing up the exercise.

    How many steps do you all take (on average) each day? I use my iPhone to tell me and its a lot lower than what I thought it would be.

    I use my Fitbit and have got my target set at 6000 and most days I archive that.

    how was your holidays Paula?

    Do you find holidays a bit of a struggle?

    I was on holidays over easter - and I was pretty good generally. I didnt go to the gym or anything, but the extra walking/swimming/activity certainly made up for the extra eating so overall I was fine.

    Sometimes though I do find it a bit tough to get back into the swing of things after a holiday

    @paulaserenity - I was asking on a thread a few weeks ago, but was wondering if you had any ideas. I'm down to my last 10kg. I've been able to shift it several times before after each pregnancy, but I find each time that I have to eat less calories and exercise more each time to drop the weight. Bloods last year were okay - consistent with PCOS as usual but my doctor prefers not to medicate. I've been on a plateau for months. Someone suggested that my metabolism might have adapted to surviving on fewer calories or that it could be in famine mode so I've started increasing calories slightly and exercising for about 20 minutes longer in the day.
    Any ideas?

    That Plateau stage is hard and if you treat and trick your body like a child so it doesn't know what is happening it may help you to get out of it faster. Switch up the exercise what you normally do do at another time of day, change the type of exercise, maybe interval or strength depending on what you are doing. Change some food and turn your meals around for 2-3 days the more you exercise the more fuel you need. Are you feeling hungry? if not then most likely your metabolism is stopping, we need to feel hungry to know that it is working. try some of those trick and let me know how you go. Your body won't just expect what it is used to getting and doing and should switch back on. You shouldn't be in it for months normally a few weeks to a month. Give it ago and well done on being down to your last 10kg!

    It was great! Holidays always make a change and make me miss the exercise. I was walking a lot also which helps but miss the gym. Don't wait to long to get back into it or it will pass you fast.
