Depressing Plateau :(
Tuesday, April 20, 2010
I've been stuck between 150-153 for almost 7 weeks now. (There was one week that I managed to hit 149, but it must have been water weight because it came right back.) I've been reading some articles/blogs on this to get some advice. I've changed my diet while maintaining the same calorie range. I've also been switching up my workouts so I run between 3 and 7 miles/4 days a week and 2 days of other types of workouts (rollerblading, hills, biking, etc.). I've even added toning exercises a couple days a week. Anything to keep my body "guessing". I feel like I've changed everything I can, and I've still seen nothing come of it. Nothing. My clothes still fit the same. The scale does not change. The tape measure still reads the same.
I keep telling myself that it will break at one point, but this is getting ridiculous. I just want to be at 140 by the 4th of July, but if this plateau keeps sticking around, I'm not going to be able to reach it at a steady, healthy rate.
This is really starting to depress me.
