New Challenge BTS

Saturday, December 07, 2013

I am honored to have been asked to be an assistant captain to a team that will be involved in the newest team challenge called Beyond the Scale (BTS)

I will be an assistant captain (along with ANNETTE117) on a new team called Black Diamonds. Captained by Letha_

The new challenge will have eight teams of 25 members, and last 10 weeks, beginning in January. And when registration opens, the teams will fill up quick. I and several others will be notifying folks in our blogs when the registration becomes public, so watch for it and grab your spot before registration closes.

Black Diamond was my first choice if I remember correctly but I'll enjoy any team I get, I'm sure! I think the BTS challenge is just a great idea! emoticon

    I'm also intrigued... but similar to Nancy Jean, I'm "almost" in maintenance: down to the last ten oh-so-slow-to-go pounds..... so if the Team Challenge is looking for large losses, or pounds per week, I'd be a hinderance to the Team Goal!! LOL But if its "Beyond The Scale" maybe it might be just what I need for the New Year! I will watch your posts....

    Kathy,

I think it's so cool, that you and Letha are teaming up together, for a new challenge. I would love to jump on board, but I would like to know a bit more about it. I'm no longer in the losing mode, but maintenance. Being in maintenance is a heck of a lot harder than being in the losing mode. I'm still trying to adjust to it. I'm not sure where I would fit in, with the new challenge. Even if I don't participate in the challenge, I'm a really emoticon emoticon cheerleader!!!

Be blessed,

Still pushing but the rock isn’t moving

Friday, December 06, 2013

The rock – otherwise known as the scale…is simply refusing to move for me. I have done everything I can think of…I gained a few pounds over thanksgiving week and lost most of those…but can’t get below my current weight. I haven’t even had my fried chicken in almost two weeks. Some say plateaus aren’t real…that you must be doing something wrong if you aren’t losing…well they are WRONG. I’m doing the same dang thing I’ve done all year and I am NOT losing. I haven’t lost since I went on the statins. I’ve been off the statins for a little while now – the only hope I have now is that some lingering effect from those are what is keeping me from losing weight right now.

My motivation is in the toilet…I’m trying so hard to keep a positive attitude…really I am…but it’s so hard when you see folks losing all around you and your own loss has stopped.

I have a new project starting soon…I won’t blog about the specifics just yet, but I’m hoping it will revive my motivation. It involves one of my best friends here on SparkPeople so that will be nice.

For now I will just keep plugging along, I certainly can't stop, I've come too far! Somehow I will do this!

I hope each of you reading this has an awesome weekend!

    I know what you mean, it is hard to adjust when we get used to losing weight regularly and then hit a plateau.

However... let's see if we can shift this "plateau" perception a bit:

You have LOST OVER 80 POUNDS and are MAINTAINING your weight loss.
That is pretty awesome no matter how you look at it - especially through the holidays.

Plateau = Maintenance
THIS IS WORKING!!!

Are you at your final goal? No. Are you doing awesome? YES!

    When I was on statins, and gained 23 lbs over night, my doctor told me not to worry about it. I'm alive and the statins helped me.

I had to lose those 23 lbs all over again, nothing easy about it. I thought maybe it was water weight, but it wasn't it was real weight! I just had to make up my mind to think positive and take it one meal at a time, and follow the rules I made for myself, and continue one and eventually it came off, plus more.

It's possible, just hang in there, remember patience is a virtue and with weight lost desire and consistency to work on it, it can be done.

Hugs

    Plateaus are very real and they totally suck. I'm on my 4th one so far. The good news is that they end. We just have to keep making good choices :)

You wrote "I’m doing the same dang thing I’ve done all year and I am NOT losing". One of the reasons plateaus can happen is that the body gets more efficient at doing things that we do repeatedly. A routine that helped us lose weight sometimes stops working because of this. Perhaps now would be a good time to change it up a bit.

Hang in there. I know it sucks, but you can break through ! You've been doing so well. Keep up the good work !

    I have had plateaus too and there is a series of articles about Plateau Busters under Fitness Articles under the Articles and Video tab or just type in Plateau Busters in the Search area at the top of the page and you will find them.
1 thing I learned is you don't want to keep doing the same thing. You want to change things up. I added 10 minutes to my walking work outs 3 times a week and I changed my Strength training work out. I also added Tai Chi as a work out once a week now and I like it a lot but the work out DVD I have takes 50 minutes and it doesn't burn that many calories.
Go and check out the articles on Plateau Busters I will send you the link to them via Spark mail.
Find out what changes will work for you.
I know you can beat this plateau!!!!!!

    Look at it in another way...

You have worked so hard for so long AND made much progress....Your body is telling you that you have earned a break...so give yourself permission to spend a few weeks focusing on the Joy of the Season. Share a Holiday Treat with your Dad or a special afternoon visiting someone he longs to see. Revel in the fact that you are much healthier this Season than last....

There's no doubt that you will be able to control yourself from really over-indulging--you have come too far to lose your Lifestyle in two weeks! Exercise not because you are driven to, have to, feel its the only way to push further...but simply because it feels good to stretch out and gets you into a rhythm for the day. SIng those Holiday Carols while you relax with some movement....

And then...after the Holidays...you will be refreshed and ready to make progress again in the New Year. ENJOY!!

    When i started my weight loss I talked with my Doctor, he looked at my graph and told me that there is a rhythm in weight loss that is not usually straight down. Plateaus and valleys were all part of it. So this is just part of the journey to your goal keep going forward and don't give up.

If you've already paid for the SP coaching, etc. then you should be able to use it for free. I've accessed so many different programs, for free. Kathy, give it a try, if you're able.

    You will find a way through this frustrating plateau. I've never experienced a plateau. Perhaps because I always fall off the wagon before I get there. But they say everyone on a long weight loss journey encounters plateaus so when it's my turn you will be able to coach me through it. Talk to you soon.

    I was stuck for over a year didn't lose but didn't gain either.
I keep reminding myself of this I came across....

There are several reasons why a goal may not come to fruition.
You set your sights too high
You set your sights too low
The universe has something far better in store for you
There is a mystical plan working in your life, and all the details are not yet revealed

I now feel that my problem was the last one as my husband has now deiced to lose weight and the moment he decided to do that the pounds started to come off again. Just don't give up. emoticon

CAPECODDOGFISH 12/6/2013 5:37PM

    I'll have to agree with King Slayer.
Another way of looking at plateaus is that while you aren't losing, for whatever reason, you also aren't gaining. Stressing yourself over it won't help and may lead to nervous eating.
Most of us have been through plateaus and they eventually end if we can be patient with ourselves and continue following the program that got our weight down until we hit the plateau. Ah PATIENCE!!, I had a difficult time with that word and its meaning but once I started being patient with me and those around me, life and weight loss became much easier.
Don't quit on yourself, be proud you have decided to change your lifestyle.aaand keep"plugging".

    I think MOTHEPRO has a good idea; taking your measurements. It could be you are losing inches but gaining muscle, and that is why you aren't seeing a difference in the scale.

I also think it could be your body hasn't adjusted yet to not having the statins.

    Plateaus suck, that's the truth. But if you keep following your plan and drinking your water, you will break through it. I believe that sometimes our bodies just need some time to "reset" themselves at a new lower weight. Once your body has accepted this new weight and made all of the appropriate changes to chemical and hormonal outputs it should start working again.

At least that's the idea that I'm sticking with!

Quit smoking anniversary – 9 months!

Friday, November 22, 2013

emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I can’t believe it’s been 9 months since I quit smoking!!! I feel like a totally different person. The fact that I’ve lost most of my weight during this time also amazes me, the old tale is that you gain weight when you quit…I’m living proof that it does not have to be that way!

emoticon emoticon emoticon
I’m still struggling with my weight plateau, but my body is adjusting off the statins and is fighting me every step of the way! However, my sugar is still coming down. I have had to once again lower my basal insulin that I take each night!

That’s all for this short update….

I hope each and every one of you reading this has an amazing day!!!

    Congrats on your 9 months cigarette free. I also am a former smoker (50 yrs worth)
and I also did not gain weight when I quit. It is a great feeling now to not be reliant on them. The plateaus do have a positive side if you can look at it, although you may not be losing, you also are not gaining weight, you are just on hold for a bit.

    Good for you. I'm so happy for you. After I quit I used to wonder "What did I do before I started smoking? How did I fill those empty moments." Now I wonder why I ever thought that. You should have a much better winter cough-wise. CONGRATS

I quit 3-1/2 years ago, and had a slip up 2 years ago. Although you will get cravings, they don't last long. Think of something else, and they'll go away!
