In January '12, it'll be three years on SP for me. This past October, I celebrated three years since starting my healthier lifestyle adventure. It was a few months after that when I discovered SP.
I've learned a lot and come a long way. However, some behaviors take longer than others to die hard.
I've blogged the following a million times - that I've always been able to "hold my food" (like the person said to be able to hold their liquor) w/o gaining. Somewhere in my psyche, that thinking still reappears.
I knew I was in trouble on and near Thxgiving when I responded to some SPfriends blogs that I intended to "enjoy myself" (read - pig out) and do so unabashedly.
Well, pig out I did. Part of me is so mad at this plateau that, no matter how well I eat or how much I exercise (a lot), there is no weight loss to be had. I rebel about that. Anothre part of me thinks I can still eat and not gain. (smiling) We know better, don't we?
Yes, I did major ingesting. Won't go into details, but I have to say that it is no longer as fun as it used to be. It was like I missed eating great, healthy food.
Then I met up with a friend who made the casual comment that I'm looking so slim lately. See, all that good eating and exercise DOES pay off, even if the scale shows that dratted plateau persisting.
I think I'm about done with all this rebelling stuff. As we know, it doesn't accomplish anything.
Wishing all a great day.
