What hsppens when we hit the dreaded plateau?
Why cant weight loss be a linear journey? Even though I have planned for everything, feel I am doing well and think I am ticking all the boxes. STOP...
My weight loss seems to stop and it feels heartbreaking, demotivating and I want to throw away everything I have learned, all my hard work and I think SOD IT (although anyone who knows me realises my language may be a but stronger than this).
This is the time I really need to look back over my journal because this is when I am at my lowest and most vulnerable.
I need to choose carefully and find something that reminds me why I am choosing to become healthier, stronger and I suppose also more disciplined.
The difference is me - I am choosing to stick with it and I know thst the scales will begin moving in the right direction again. I know that I will feel more motivsted if I can just choose to stick with the stuff I know works rather than focusing on what I feel isn't working.
And yet it feels so harsh, so frustrating and sometimes I just want to be "like" everyone else. Maybe that's what's happening - my sense of belonging is disintegrating - I am not sure where I belong...
Anyway, for anyone who has ever been stuck, is currently stuck or is thinking of giving up - Let's get stuck at sticking to what we know works for us and keep the faith. Keep focused and maybe measure something else today that doesn't involve the scales. Me - I am going for a quick walk before my training session begins.
