For weeks I've been stuck in the low 200"s. It is driving me nuts. Some weeks I know why - went off the food plan for a few days... didn't exercise every day etc. But I'm realizing that maybe it's all in my head. I haven't been in the 100"s since last summer. I put on 30 lbs from Sept to Dec 2011 all from stress eating. Now the stress is gone.... I'm down to 202 - 204 so I know I have the power to move the scale downwards.
It's like I'm in a place to rest before everything starts going again. Does that make sense? It's like if I break that 200 mark - then what????? I know it's just a number - but why oh why is this my resting place??
I'm not stepping on the scale till Sunday. Maybe this will be the week..... It's been going well. Doing 5 km walks - maybe I need to add some jogging to that walk? I've got the food plan worked out - been eating pretty healthy for weeks and the cravings for junk are pretty much gone so I'm not fighting with food like I used to.....
I wonder what other people say to themselves when they get stuck in the weightloss journey.....what do they do to get through it and back to losing again.... What can I say and what can I do to just get through to the other side????????????
