First of all, I can see the value of blogging since I used to do it daily but haven't been regular for awhile (blogging. otherwise, very regular, thank you!) It really provides a focus as to what the issues are and anchors me to reality. Reality is a place that I haven't been in for awhile now. With the recent death of my dear cousin, I've been inconsolable.
Okay, here's the deal on the plateau. I lost all of my 34 lbs in the first year of this almost two year lifestyle change (October 13, 2008) is when it started. Since then, I have tried everything, but my body hasn't given up one addl. pound.
As a result of this long plateau, I became despondent, discouraged, and figured "What the hay?" Since my body wasn't moving down, I could now eat, eat, and eat. Then, this last week, I stepped on the scale and was horrified to see weight gain for the first time in the almost two years! Funny thing is, I could feel those extra lbs before I got on the scale.
So, yes, the plateau is broken, but in the wrong direction. Not going to let it get me down. I know better than to bury myself in chocolate covered raspberries, but in the face of intense sadness, I really haven't cared.
But I really do care, and thanks to SP and friends, I have stayed tracking, active, and am back on track as I write this
Have a wonderful weekend.
