Yeah I said it. I have been at a plateau for about four months now. Gaining and losing the same 5 pounds. So frustrated. But you know what the best part of this whole experience is? Although I am experiencing a plateau I have not gained. I have been able to maintain for four months and that is great. The band is doing what I need it to do and that is help me maintain my success. In the past when I found myself dealing with lack of motivation or plateaus I ended up going back to all my old habits. Beating myself up because I wasn't perfect and would turn to food and gain it all back. Although I am still struggling with my emotions and my relationship with food and I still have moments when I beige, I am doing tremendous. Drive and motivation ebbs and flows and that is OK. Being perfect is not what is important. What's important is that I show up everyday and do my best at that moment. My best may be 100% one day and 25% another and that is ok.
Just show up.
