Plateau busted

Thursday, May 08, 2014

So glad to see the scale budge. I am rededicated to my diet and working out and am grateful to see the progress. I'm working on a couch to 5K jogging plan now. I'm having to repeat the 2nd week because when I moved to week three I hurt my knee and had to take several days of rest before it felt better. I really enjoy jogging and hiking. I want to be able to do more and go farther and I am getting there slowly. I keep trying every day and I'll get there :) emoticon

    Great job! I love that program and plan to do it again after I'm a bit lighter.

Still Plateauing

Monday, April 28, 2014

I am still stuck at 257. I have been eating well but I slacked on my workouts last week. I'm trying hard this week to really stick to everything. I want to see that scale budge. I realize that losing weight isn't all this is about but I really want to. It's so hard to stay focused when you're working hard and not getting anywhere. Hopefully, this week will be better.

  sometimes the scale can be deceiving and that's why I take measurements. once, I lost just 3 pounds in a month after really putting in the hard work and felt discouraged. wasn't even going to measure but I promised myself a measurement once a month and I was amazed...really AMAZED at the inches I lost...especially in my waist, hips and thighs!!

also...even if you don't 'see' results on the outside....your insides are thanking you! . have a super successful and progressive month ahead and thanks for your support on my latest blog...I appreciate it. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Couldn't tell from your page but if you've lost more than 20 lbs. if you have you may need to adjust your calorie range down a little. You can do that on the start page by edit your nutrition & weight loss goals.

    I understand where you're coming from... It's been up & down for me w/in fairly narrow range since last summer - my logical mind is sick of plateau but obviously something in my subconscious is hanging on tight!

Plateau or Fear of Success?

Sunday, April 13, 2014

I've lost about 15 pounds since I first started eating better. I lost quickly at first and was really motivated to work out. Then I got sick and work has gotten really hectic and I never know what my schedule will be like from day to day and my eating and workout routine suffered. Then instead of staying committed I have let this come between me and my goal. This is what I do most times that I lose weight.

I want this to be a lifestyle change and to be in it for the long haul. I'm back at it but I keep beating myself up about having wavered the last few weeks. This is a pattern of mine and I'm tired of it. I think I'm afraid to lose weight. I've only ever lost significant amounts of weight "for" someone else or "with" someone else in past relationships. I've never been able to do it for myself.

I am worth it. I do want it and I do want to work for it. But part of me thinks I'm not capable of doing it alone. That I need someone else. But hopefully, realizing this will help me to break out of this pattern and allow myself to stick with it even without someone else holding my hand each step of the way.

    I think you're doing great and yes you're gonna have set backs, it doesn't matter just as long as you keep going or get right back into it when you know you've gotten off tracks. Life does get in the way at time you've just got to accept that it always will, and try to plan everything better. I guess at some point we'll master it, and even yet I don't think we can be perfect all the time !
Just keep on going, you'll get there eventually !

    You're on the right track! Always do it for you, nobody else! Have you set up a goal/reward for yourself? Sometimes that's a good self motivator. For example: back in December I saw the cutest purse at target. I told myself I could buy it if I lost 20 pounds. It felt great to go get it as a reward when I hit my goal. You're right- you're worth it! Keep your head up. You can do it!

April Selfies

New April Pictures of me - I think I can see the difference from my March Pictures but maybe I just want to LOL Either way, I definitely did a lot of stuff in March that I usually wouldn't have done.

Getting back on track

Thursday, April 03, 2014

I got sick last week and was running a fever, coughing, sneezing, and chilling all over. I've been fighting this off all week. I still feel under the weather but I'm definitely on the upswing now. I'm going to get back to working out tomorrow. I've been doing pretty good on my eating the whole time since my appetite wasn't that great while I was sick. I feel bad to have lost a week but I'm eager to get back to it and not lose any more time.

On Sunday I'm doing a 5K with a friend. We're just going to walk it for charity but I'm excited to be doing it. I'm doing the Color Run again in September and I'm hoping to be able to jog the entire thing and this first 5K is a step toward getting geared up and I have all Spring and Summer to get ready.

I can definitely do it :D
