# plotting is giving me multiple lines

Greetings,
I made some modifications to my code and I am trying to plot this, but it is giving me different lines. My intent is to plot the first row of "stress1f(:,k)" for the x axis and y axis z_1=[z(k) z(k+1)]; I tried to do it inside and outside the for loop, but matlab seems to graph the same points multiple times when i do it inside the for loop and outside it seems the same. any suggestions would be greatly appreciated it
My graph should look as the three graphs on the right when I graph the first, second, and third row against z_1=[z(k) z(k+1)];
