If you become conscious of this process, if you are doing the mirror exercise, you will realize that while the scale isn’t so much as flickering, your body is changing quite dramatically. Hang in there. The water that is gradually leaving the celi will ultimately be flushed out. You never know when a plateau will strike or just how long it will last.
Joe hit a plateau on the third day of the Beverly Hills Diet, a time when almost ali clients are losing the fastest. Janet’s plateau came just before her big trip to Europe, when she wanted to be her slimmest. Fat does not play fair.
During my final weight loss, when I was “going ali the way,” I got stuck for a fiili thirteen days at 108 pounds despite desperate measures. Once I had proven to myself that I wouldn’t give in to Fat, once I had proven that I would not succumb to the lure of cashews or raisins or anything else I wanted to eat, I began losing again. The following week, eight pounds dropped off.
