Write a blog about your plateau. How long have you been stuck in a plateau? What have you done so far to try and overcome it? Within your blog, make a commitment to stick with your 4-week plateau-busting plan.
I'm not sure If I'm stuck in a plateau for sure. I haven't been able to break the 240 lb mark. I've been bouncing between 241 and 251 for 8 months now. I've been eating right, exercising and staying within my calories but I've been stuck. I think its because I've been getting sick a lot and had surgery this year and last year. I'm also not sleeping well and need a C-pap machine but haven't had the time to get a sleep study completed.
So far I've tried to overcome this by just sticking with the Spark Plan. Trying to stay active in the spark community and to keep moving is what I've been trying to do to overcome this rut.
Today I am making a commitment to stick with my 4-week SparkCoach plateau busting plan!
I messed up yesterday though, I forgot my fitbit at home (First time in months) and then I over ate, ok binged, whatever. I went over my calories by 1000 cals. I know because I still counted. I just couldn’t' stop eating. I think it might be due to my antibiotics. I'm not sure. But I will fight it today, and even though I don't feel like exercising I will go to the gym after work. I haven't binged since August 1st and before that not since June. So I guess you can saw I do that about once or twice a month, and its always at home, when I'm bored.
I have an action plan against it It just fails me every once in a while. Or I fail myself. But I've learned to forgive myself. Its all a part of the journey I guess. I used to binge all the time, that's how I got chubs. So I think I'm getting better.
