I just huddled with my teams & posted "I need support!" on all of them. I've only been doing this 35 days and I have been so freaking dedicated to this. I DO NOT want to lose that dedication. But apparently I have hit one of the dreaded plateaus. My scale has been hovering around the same number for a solid week. Since I am on Spring Break, I decided to try to beat the plateau by putting more time and effort into my cardio. I had done 15-20 mins daily for the first several weeks. Since I have the free time this week, I have been putting in a solid 30 minutes. But my scale says I have actually GAINED. I haven't been eating more. If anything, I have to force myself to eat to get to my minimum calories. So this must be a plateau and my body is sorting itself out. It is SO hard not to get impatient.
Plus I have doubts about my scale. The other day, I put it down, but it was a little off from where I normally set it down (I use the tiles on my floor as a guide.) It showed my weight at 194. I was like, "WHOOHOO!" until I noticed I was one tile off. I moved it over. 202. Damnit. So I could use some scale recommendations if anyone has any. I'm looking into a beam scale - like a medical one. Something that won't be 8 lbs. off from one place on the floor to the next. I mean, how do I know which one is my real weight? Grrrrrrr.
