#2 - Stay Encouraged

Monday, July 26, 2010

It was only several weeks ago when I blogged that my 1st goal was in sight. I was fast approaching 250 pounds, and it was feeling good. I could not believe that I was this close to reaching my goal. It had not been easy, but since I was so determined to get there, nothing would slow me down.

Well, here it is a couple of weeks later, and I have not lost another pound. What happened? Well I started reading the blogs and the articles related to weight loss and how we may plateau from time to time, but I was doing all of the right things, at least so I thought.

I was eating way below the projected amount of calories, fat, and carbohydrates. I was working harder and harder to reach my fitness goals everyday, and still I just could not lose another pound.

I am not discouraged. I must stay encouraged in order to reach my goals and most importantly, I must ramp up the exercise and stay on target with the food. I must stay encouraged.

    Keep up the good work uncle! I agree with the first poster, I upped my calories last week and dropped 3 pounds after 2 weeks of no loss. Dont know how or why that works, but it did. Slightly increasing calories wont be hard to do on this vacation!

    I think that upping your calories to recommended will make a difference. Give it a try and see what happens. emoticon
