My weightloss progress was steady for the first weeks. And then I hit a plateau. It took over a week to bust through (not too bad).... and then I hit another. Almost 3 weeks later, I finally saw a loss of 2 lbs and some inches. And now, here I am again.... 2 weeks in to a plateau with weight loss and inches lost... and I am sure it will be 3 come friday.
My question is....what do I do to avoid these or break through them? I am staying in my calorie count. I tried upping my calories... I work out consistently and I have tried to vary what I am doing so that my body doesn't get used to anything. What is the next step to try?
13-14 weeks into this now and I don't want to lose my motivation...but I must admit, its getting harder and harder to keep going when I am not seeing any kind of results.

I have fallen so hard off of the wagon, it's amazing I am still here.
The last year has been such a hard and stressful one. And apparently I turned to food to cope.
In May, I was down to 150.
And I ended the year at 171.6.
21.6 pounds gained in 7 months. This is exactly how much I weighed 6 weeks after having my son.
I do not have any clothes that fit. I am sore and achy all of the time. And of course, I feel terrible.
I already posted my ranty/whiney post about this, so I won't do it again now.
Instead, I am refocusing my energy and motivation and trying to climb out of the dirt and back onto the wagon again. I am tired of looking in the mirror everyday, hating my own reflection. God gave me this body to live in and to care for, and I need to be doing just that.
I've gained the weight and the inches. Now, I have to lose them... again.
One. Baby. Step. At. A. Time.

My weigh in day was Monday. I was hoping to hit my goal of 10 pounds down before my birthday (which was Tuesday). I didn't have a loss this week. Just .2, which is a bathroom visit for all I am concerned lol. But I didn't gain anything, so I will celebrate that.
I am setting my sights on my new goal of Thanksgiving. I want to lose 5 lbs before this day. It will put me at 150. I definitely like making these smaller goals, over a larger, farther away goal. Its very motivating.
Alright, its time to start killing those 5 pounds! Only 36 days to go!

I don't usually believe in fad diets. They only serve as a short term solution. But, as some of you know, I have been struggling to get rid of my "mom apron" or "donut belly" since I had my son 3 years ago. Everything I am researching online suggests lots of cardio and a low carb/low sugar diet to help with this issue.
If you know me, you know I am a carb-a-holic. We eat pasta 2-3 times a week, i love mashed potatoes (and potatoes in general), and bread....oh bread. I can forsee this being a problem lol.
So, for those of you who have adopted this low carb lifestyle, how have you made it work? Any tips/suggestions to make this a little easier?
Edit: I want to throw in that I have no intention of cutting them out all together. Also, I love fruits and veggies, so even though most of those contain carbs, I won't cut them out either. I guess I am just looking at a serious reduction in consumption. My body doesn't really like sugar anymore. I can no longer drink sweet tea because it makes me sick to my stomach (I lived on it for 20+ years). I also can't eat a lot of sweets/candy/etc. for the same reason. This has just started within the last year...
