1-99 SparkPoints 36

17 days without weight change

Sunday, April 15, 2012

So, I didn't realize until today that I have not changed in weight since March 29. I seem to be stuck a the 213 lb mark. I''m struggling right now, my motivation is waning. I was working so hard to be under 200 by May 19, and I'm beginning to think I am not going to make it. I feel like I have disappointed myself and my husband. He is doing his first Spartan Sprint in Austin, TX, May 19. He is such a huge motivation to me, losing 93 lbs in 8 months. I'm running now because of him, exercising at least 5 or 6 days a week, yet not losing anything at the moment. I'm not eating different. I can't figure this out. I will keep on, I will continue to eat right and workout. Hopefully I will wake up one morning and be a few pounds lighter and back on track.

    Plateau's suck! Try mixing your routine up a bit? Maybe add weights if you haven't started strength training yet? I always seem to hit a plateau where I am right now. Last time I got past it by going to Europe for 3 weeks (that's one way to mix it up!), but right now, I've been at this weight for 3 days and I'm starting to freak out about it!

    Don't get discouraged though because if you weren't continuing to do what you are doing then you would only be gaining weight, not maintaing it! I keep trying myself to not get disappointed, I still have my goal to lose 14 more lbs by memorial day weekend, but I'm not sure if it will happen. Just keep on going and hopefully the scale will drop soon! You can do it!

    Also, are you losing inches? Your weight may stay the same, but if those inches are coming off, then your body is still changing and that is what matters!
