    Time off broke plateau?

    I've been hitting the gym on average 4 days a week for the last 2 years. The first year I took about 3 different weeks off to reset, and this year was the same except last month I took and additional 3 weeks off but in succession. Its weird because during this time frame I have broke a weight loss plateau that has been nagging for a while now. The only thing I can think of is, maybe I was fatiguing my overall system and that much of a hard reset was exactly what I needed. shouldn't be too much muscle loss, because it was 10-15 pounds lost in 2-3 weeks. Thoughts?

    There is no way that you lose 10-15 pounds in 2-3 weeks unless it was from an illness like the flu. I think that the only reason you would lose that much weight so fast would be from a serious illness. Hope this makes sense. it is physically impossible to lose 10-15 pounds in 2-3 weeks unless its water weight or you were very heavy.

    in reality it was all total, from before I stopped till now, so we are talking a total of a month or two of not weighing myself, my fault. I should of mentioned its all from last time on scale till now.

    dont worry about the lost time! Keep lifting and getting stronger watch my stuff for motivation! Also a key to keep you motivated in fitness is to always set goals and achieve them!! take care case2200
    The best way to track results is through pictures or through body weight and body fat percentages. Technology also helps to organize workout programs/routines. hope this helps

    The same thing happens to me as well (not that dramatic weight loss). Now I just take a week or two off every two or three months. Feel fresh and normally perform better in the gym too.
