Plateau , perhaps?

Thursday, March 29, 2012

I think I've hit my plateau.
I only lost 1lb this past week.
that puts me at 226.1
since December 31, 2011

this is frustrating because the last time I started a weight loss know...the time I gave up.. I lost 30lbs and then packed the 30lbs I lost and then another 30lbs back on.

I started this journey this time around with a goal to lose 61lbs because I am on a mission to get to ONEderland..and that will take me to 199lbs. I'm over half way there and I am proud of myself for that but I am also really scared that what happened last time is going to happen again.

I am newly single, again.
I am a single mother of now a 2 and a 6 year old.
I am a full-time social work student.
I am in my Jr. year.
I am doing field placement.

AND, I'm on a weight loss journey.

seriously, my head is spinning.
someone tell me this can be done!


I feel myself slipping.
I can't fall.

there is way too much on the line here.

lots of pressure.

    Don't give up. I also have been on a plateau for a few months. I started making my menu daily and sticking to it. I also am having 3 cups of popcorn in the early evening and it is sticking with me. It makes me feel full. I put 1/4 cup of popcorn kernels i a paper bag, put it in the microwave on the popcorn setting (listen carefully because as soon as it slows down popping it can burn very quickly) remove from microwave and dump it into a bowl, I use pam butter spray and spray the popcorn and then add salt, grated cheese or garlic powder. Enjoy. This is saving me from munching all evening.You may also try mixing up your routines. Good luck to you.
