Plateau Broken!

Wednesday, July 14, 2010

The plateau I've been on since June 20 finally broke. I went down a pound! Thank you, Spark Friends, who encouraged and reassured me while I was experiencing frustration and disappointment. I expect to react differently the next time I "plateau." As goofy as this may sound, I was becoming fearful that that next pound just wasn't going away, and, obviously, if it didn't go, neither could any that had to follow it. Reminding myself that ANYONE would lose weight over time when calories burned exceeded calories consumed kept my logic on course, but, as illogical as it sounds, I feared that for some reason my body was defying that law when, no matter what I did, that pound just hung on. I might have given up but for the encouragement of my friends on Spark.

Thank you all. Why that persistent pound hung on like it did, I don't know, but when I plateau in the future, as will undoubtedly happen, I will just be patient and smile, knowing that that pound, too, shall pass. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have had several plateaus over the last 6 months. You are right about calories in needing to be less than calories burned. What works for me is to go to bed feeling just a little bit hungry. Not starving, but with the feeling that a snack would taste good. Usually the scale responds with a drop in the morning.
