It's been a frustrating couple of months. I am stuck.
I've been doing everything I know how to get the scale moving again...but...it just sits there...hovering around the same couple of numbers day after day, week after week.
I've tried exercising more. I've tried eating less.
I've tried eating more and exercising less.
I've tried upping my protein.
I've tried upping my caffeine. (ha!)
But still....the scale remains firmly set.
I started my DONE girls challenge on Valentine's day at 207.5 lbs, and now... 2 1/2 months later, as of this morning, I'm down exactly 11 pounds. I know, that's *something*...but goodness. I really have lost momentum. I was on a steady 10 pounds a month loss...and now...things have come to an unmistakable grinding halt. I finally broke into ONEderland on March 22, at 199 lbs....but now it's the end of April...and I'm STILL HERE. *boo hoo!*
MY SIZE AND SHAPE ARE STILL CHANGING!
So, so, so, sooooooooo happy about that! Here are a few pictures of us in our Easter finest:
And for comparison....here I was LAST year at our Easter egg hunt...feeling miserable and self-conscious:
I thought that sweater could *hide* it all...but can you see it behind that tree? OMG look at how BIG my stomach was!
And THIS year:
Thank you, SparkPeople! You've given me my life back!!!
