    Don't give up, I hit plateaus about every 10 lbs. A suggestion, try to boost your workout by just 1 extra set of 20 quick pushups or a short quick walk. Just a little added exertion could break that plateau faster. But , honestly, your body needs the time to adjust after every few lbs. lost , especially if you have been the same weight for a long time.
    Just keep with it, you'll get there.
