How do I handle a weight loss plateau in a good program of diet and exercise? Sometimes my weight does not change for more than a week.

In brief: Focus on other goals

There are many ways to define success when trying to reshape your body.
These include how your clothes fit, how you feel, and what number is displayed by the scale. Btw, the most healthy way to loss weight is slowly. You should not loss more than a pound/week anyway. I recommend weighing yourself once/week at the same time and day. It sounds like you are doing great. Keep up the good work.

In brief: Don't focus on wt.

Focus on positive things like how your muscles feel, how you are breathing, how healthy food tastes, and how good you feel.
Don't focus just on weight. Use a journal to write down positive things.
