Losing inches instead of pounds. Don't give up just because the scale is not moving in the direction you want. You will probably lose inches before pounds. Give your body time to adjust to your new healthy lifestyle. It won't happen over night.
In this battle of losing weight, the fight is you vs. you. You determine how much effort you are going to put in it. You determine if you are going to eat healthy. So kick your butt in gear and go after your goal! Don't let you get in the way of you.
Remember the good things you have accomplished up to that point, try changing some of your foods and workouts to things you have never tried before...just be positive and preserver. As long as you are trying and don't give up, the plateau can't last forever.
i really enjoy my workouts, but the drive to my trainers office takes me by some extremely unhealthy places (mcdonalds, wendys, dennys, applebees...to just name a few). so to avoid temptation i take another route that is kind of out of the way, but the benefits definitely out weight the risks..
