Plateau's - hate, hate, hate

Sunday, October 02, 2011

I only posted this picture because I like blog's with pictures and well...she's so stinkin' cute! *NOTE TO SELF: Never allow the kids to have ice cream CONES in the car. ALWAYS get the ice cream in a CUP.

Now, on the topic at hand.
Okay, so still no weightloss. I still have no clue as to why. So I've been searching for answers and I ran across this article:
/ fitnessblackbook.com/die
ting_for_fat_loss/avoid-fa
t-loss-plateaus-by-taking-
strategic-breaks-from-dieting/


In a nutshell, this article advocates going off your diet...not for a meal, or a day...but for a week. It acknowledges that you will probably gain back some weight BUT!!! you will restart your metabolism.

I've become so accustomed to trying to keep my calories in my range, this almost makes me feel panicky. However, I think I'm going to give this a try.

WHILE I'm doing this, I'm hoping to minimize weight gain by doing the 28 Day Boot Camp here on SP.

Counting calories and exercising alone is not working. So I have to try something else until I find something that works.

    I do believe that plateaus are normal. Kind of like your body is readjusting to the changes. If you can work through them, the weight will begin to fall off again :)

Good luck

    I have been at this for 13 months with a 4 month break in the middle. During the times I was tracking I have never hit a plateau of more than a week. I have taken long weekends and weeks (or more) off due to planned family vacations and they do WONDERS for my weight loss. I DO gain. And then I lose and lose some more. If I didn't have one of these planned vacation type breaks. I would definitely plan time off like this at least every few months. I hope that it works for you too!
