Ladies and Gentlemen, I am officially and totally frustrated.
I have gained and lost the same 2-3 since June. At first I blamed this plateau on the fact that I wasn't really putting forth enough effort. I was watching what I was eating and exercising, but not as seriously as I should have been. So I kicked it up and notch. Nothing.
I then got fully involved. I ate right, I exercised like I there was no tomorrow. I read every article I could get my hands on for advice on motivation and breaking plateaus. I drank water like a fish. Nada. It is becoming hard for me to keep going when I don't seem to be getting anywhere. I've been patient; I've tried to pay more attention to the tape measure than the scale, but even the tape measure isn't showing much change (although more change than the scale).
I have 40 pounds to go to my final goal and all I can think about right now is just achieving my short term goal that I originally set for July and have reset over and over (currently set for December).
I will not accept that this is where "my body wants to be". My body does NOT want to be 40 pounds overweight, I don't care what anybody says!
