Sitting on a Plateau
Sunday, November 23, 2008
I am humbly joining the great number of people on this site who have hit a plateau. From other people's blogs, I have seen that plateaus can last for weeks or months, and that the important thing is not to give up! I've also been trying to do my part by logging my food, water, and exercise. I've been doing interval training and now I'm mixing up my exercises more ... cycling one day, eliptical the next, etc. I have been inconsistent with strength training so I know that needs to be more of a priority.
147 isn't a bad place to be but I don't want to stay here forever. It is 12 pounds from a healthy BMI and I'm at high risk for diabetes, so those 12 pounds need to go! It's been a couple years since I have held this weight for any length of time, so perhaps it is a natural place for my body to stop and rest for awhile. My clothes have been getting looser, so 'something' is happening. I'm just wondering when the scale will agree!
