When you start working out, the weight seems to just drop off, but then it slows down. This plateau effect is common among those trying to lose weight, and it can be discouraging. It is important to stay focused when this happens. If you’re committed to making a lifestyle change, it is just as important to tackle the small problems as well as the big ones.
