An Experiment gone wrong...

Sunday, September 25, 2011

My first blog entry.
I've had smooth sailing in terms of my mood and excitement and motivation levels. Can't say I wavered at all in the first 9 weeks. Despite the plateau for the past 4 weeks. I lost 7 lbs in the first 5 weeks and then just stopped. Exercising more and more and adding more ST each week. I guess I'm developing some muscle. My measurements are improving, so I know something good is happening. I also feel that my mood has been great and has carried me through the plateau. BUT we've had a string of rainy cloudy weather and it's getting me down. I also took a few days trial of low carb, high protein eating to see if it might shake up my metabolism. I want to blame my experiment for my mood change and energy level decreasing. So Monday I will go back to keeping in sync with the Spark's goals for carbs and protein and quit messing around. I don't want to lose the good thing i had going.

Have a successful week, everyone!

    Be patient and do not be discouraged no matter what the scale may say. External results may be slow but the internal results may be even better.

    Your first blog entry! Congratulations! Lol. Anyway....as long as you're losing inches that is definitely an improvement! I mean....I've been doing this for almost three weeks and haven't lost a pound yet. I weigh tomorrow...so, we'll see what happens. Hopefully, the weather will improve for us! See you Tuesday!

    I too was tempted to try something to shake up my plateau. Low carb or low fat, high protein, what to choose? Instead, I spent all of that energy exploring Sparkpeople and reading reading reading! I learned a lot about the horrible plateau stage from others and through them, I learned to accept the progress I had made and look forward to the next milestone, whether it was walking 10 extra minutes because I wanted to, or losing a half an inch on my inner thighs. The distraction away from the scale focus worked for me! Good luck and don't ever give up! You are worth it!

    It can be very frustrating when results don't happen despite our efforts, but keep your chin up! Keep focussed on your goals, and the reasons for your goal, and trust in the support and guidance from SP.

I know you can do it, and I look forward to hearing about your successes in the weeks to come!
