Plateau I hate you!

Monday, March 07, 2011

I have hit my first Plateau. Plateau's are always so frustrating, they just kill my momentum. In the past they are what have been my demise. But this time I am handling it differently. I have started 2 challenges. I think that this will really help me stay on track. I need something to be excited about and if it is not lbs lost it has to be something else. i am very competitive so I think these small sort term goals, will really help stoke that fire.

I have had to evaluate what has caused the plateau as well. I kind of felt this coming. The first few weeks the weight was coming off so easily, I have been taking alli and not having much side effects, while I am happy about this, it is also the reason I started taking alli, I thought that if I was afraid of the side effects it would stop me from giving in to the cravings. While it does do this still to a point, I am not as afraid of the side effects any more since I have not suffered from them. Also there are things you can indulge in that are full of calories but have 0 fat. So I am getting back into tracking my food. This time around I was logging, but not on Spark, today I started to go back to that. Every time I have logged my food religiously I have been successful. I just have to find the time to do it. I realized today that it really doesn't take to long. Spark has so many foods already logged in that it makes it really easy. So that is a mini goal for me for the next week, log every bite!

    Ahh, the plateau was my middle name. I was a yo-yoer and I used to get discouraged easily. Not any more. I find it a tool to change up my routine. I wish you much luck- you can beat the plateau!
