Don't stress its the scale !
45 down 5 to go. C'mon you've done great so far. Even if you have hit a plateau it won't last so "calm the body"
As your weight should be fluctuating pretty much daily, I'd say it's the scale.
At 5 down you are not going to plateau. Hope you are eating minimum at your BMR. eat at your BMR n achieve a 500 deficit daily you will see a steady decline of 1 lbs a week. As your body adjusts water retention decreasing due to not eating junk or retaining in muscle for exercise you will see ups and downs. BUT over 3 to 4 weeks there will be a weight loss by way of fat loss of 1lbs average a week.
O girl throw that scale away!!!!
find the heaviest objects you can (like winter boots, or a gallon of milk), or even a water bottle over 16 oz (something you know weighs 1 lb or more) and go stand on that scale. If it goes up, it's you, and if it doesn't, its the scale. tada!
Never use someone's scale. Been there, did that, big head trip!!! As far as plateaus, I have seen many, and they really do mess with you. Stop scale watching, do weekly weigh in's early before food but after you've had a chance to clear out if you get my meaning. As long as you are eating right, things will fall off. Switch it up, get out of your comfort zone!!
