How are you doing so far? Blowing up goals? Working your butt off, literally? Feeling good? I hope so! I'd love to hear about your success! I've had a little slump this week, but am down 29 pounds! My topic came from what I've been going through this week:
Change is GOOD!
I know, I know, it's cliche. But we don't like change, do we. It's the same with losing weight and getting healthy. When you first start the journey, the change shocks your body. You lose a lot of weight quickly because of water weight and because of the drastic change. But after a while, your body gets used to it, and you start to plateau. This is also called muscle memory. If you do the same workout every day, at the same time, for the same amount of time, your muscles get used to it, and though your body will still burn calories, it won't be pushed as hard. That's why it's really important to change it up every so often. If you usually walk/run, ride the bike. If you do the elliptical, change it to the stairmaster for a bit. Go further/longer/faster. Do something to where your muscles are working harder. This will reignite that weight loss, because your muscles are being worked a different way. It definitely helped me out! 
Here's some more inspiration to get you motivated:
