I have talked to a few people and I have gotten a few answers, read a few articles and I have gotten a few new insights. Mainly good answers so now I just need to make a decision and make a move to get off of this plateau. Here are my options that I was recommended.
1. Drop something from my diet (ie. carbs, meat, or sweets) Only pick one and do it for week.
2. Add more minutes to my exercise 2-3 times a week.
3. Eat 6 small meals a day, instead of the 5 that I have been doing. (275 calories each meal for me) 1260-1690 total for the day as long as its all balanced out!!
4. Take my multivitamin everyday.
5. Take a dietary supplement for 1 month, to get my body off of the plateau.
I liked all of the suggestions except for #5. I feel that I have made it this far that taking that supplement would jeopardize what I have done. I just want to do this the normal way. Through my food intake and exercise. So I am going to do #1-4.
This week I am dropping my sweets & carbs. Maybe I can do no carbs every other day. Last month I didn't do to well with no carbs. This month is a new month and I am going to do it. I am going to drop my sweets for 2 weeks. I don't eat sweets everyday, I usually have a piece of fruit when I feel for something sweet. I am going to drop the juice though. In 2 weeks I am going to do a weigh in and hope to see some pounds gone, plus with my cycle coming I am going to have to fight the munchies. I am not going to give in. I really want to reverse that monthly gain to a monthly lose or at least maintain. I will take my vitamin everyday at night and also get my exercise in, I have no problem with that at all. I love to workout now, it's like I have to, or I feel that I have missed out on something. So this month is a new month, and I am going to do my weigh in, in two weeks. I am going to lose something this month, more than a goose egg.

Okay today I am nervous and worried about tomorrow. I will do my weigh in tomorrow morning, that will help me to gain focus on which direction I need to steer in. I am going to get some good rest tonight and cutting off all fluids and snacks at 7pm, I only ate a salad for dinner, I wasn't really hungry. So we shall see how the morning goes............. The ticker will tell...

I want to take this thing and take it as HIGH as it will go. I know this journey is not always an easy road to travel. I think that we have to take a moment and look at all the positives that comes from this journey, this lifestyle change has caused me to change in so many ways, that I make sure I am not losing focus of my goal, I make sure I am doing what is right for me, so many people who think that my changes are taking away from me, yet I have to say for me its making me a better person, inside and out. I want to accomplish this goal so badly that I feel it in my bones. When I feel down I must turn those negatives into positives, some days I feel like I am on top of the world and then there are days that I am just not getting to where I want to be in the time that I want to get there in. This journey can be like a roller coaster ride sometimes, I just want everyone to know that we are not alone in this journey. It is something that we are all going through at the same time, different points in the journey but its a ride that we are all familiar with!!!
