Rockin' the Easter dress! (and comparison to 1 year ago)


Tuesday, April 26, 2011

It's been a frustrating couple of months. I am stuck.
Stuck.
Stuck.

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!*

HOWEVER...

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!!!

    Dont get hung up on the numbers of the scale...its ALL about the changes you see and feel in your body. You look great and it sounds like you feel a lot better! That is what matters. Screw looking at the scale! emoticon

    emoticon emoticon emoticon Hang in there the numbers will start falling again. Maybe adjust your fitness, that will adjust your food. I was told to eat the max calories if my activity level is above what my tracker was set up for. On slower days eat the lower end of your calories. It will come off and you will be posting your success story! emoticon
