Stuck on the Plateau
Sunday, October 03, 2010
That is not really a correct title, but its what I feel like I am on.
To be honest, I am happy to be on a plateau, if thats what you need to call it. I shared in a previous post that I had enjoyed a very big slice of my grandsons birthday cake, and had a few extra treats along the week so while I didn't GAIN any weight, (I don't know how that happened!), I didn't lose any either. So my weight was the same. Now, this week, I have been really and for truly back on track, and I still didn't lose any weight! Hence....on the plateau. But it's really ok, because this has happened a couple of times since my return to SP. Next week I will problably show a 7 lb drop. Oh now wouldn't THAT just be heavenly!!!
I'm still in a good mood about it all, I'm just happy to be able to fit into clothes that I haven't been able to wear in years! And although most experts would say not to keep clothes that are too small, because they just remind you of how big you got, I like to keep my clothes as the incentive to get back into them. Hey, what works for one, may not work for another, and it works for me.
By the same token... isn't it a riot to try on a pair of pants that are so big they fall off your hips, and you remember when they used to be tight?, and you see your self as the new you, and you smile at what you have accomplished! I tend to get mad at myself for a minute when I do that, because it does remind me of how badly I let myself go...but, like I said, it works for one, but not another. My friend keeps the big clothes and does that, and it makes her happy to see the change. She does before and after shots, and then hangs them up as visual reminders.
So...Fall is in the air here in New England, at least for today. I don't know if the heat will try to return for one last shot, but the leaves are falling, and I am looking forward to the changing season. I can walk faster, and workout harder without sweating all over my self! LOL
So Sparkers... with that, I am off to play in the leaves.
See you around the webs!
