A while ago i made it to 116.5kg and then it stalled for a week, severely pissing me off and making me fall of my diet plan out of frustration.

I just recently got myself back to 116.5, and now its been there for the past 3 days. Wtf is it with that goddamned number :(

three DAYS...

Dude... I have gone through phases where I did not gain or lose a pound for OVER A MONTH at a time. Don't be a baby about it :) If you feel you are plataued, change something... wether it be diet or training. But don't use it as an excuse to binge out of frustration.

i'm not going to binge, i'm just wondering why its always this number ;)

and dude if you went for a month without losing fat, why didn't you change your plan? I would have done it after the first week, if not the second :(

my magic number was 245lbs... and it stayed there the entire month of november and THEN some. I tried "everything" from cardio 2x a day, to eating less, to eating more... then one day I started losing weight again. I just had to stick with it. Sometimes we need to practice patience.

you can and you will.

I plataued at 255, 245, 230 and 220,.... 245 was the worst though. Look at my weight log on http://patrickavella.com/fitness it documents my weekly weights while i was still heavy.
