Ready to get off this plateau
Wednesday, May 16, 2012
I’ve said it before I seem to be the world’s slowest looser, but I’m ok with that. I’ve been stuck at the same weight for about five months. In that time I sort of gave up tracking things and while I spend a little time on Spark People every day I wasn’t always great about doing all those thinks that I knew would lead to weight loss. Still I didn’t gain. I just plotted along and stayed where I was with minimal fluctuations.
That being said something has finally clicked this week. Part of it is that I’m finally taking some steps to get a different job. Nothing may come of it. So far I’ve only applied at one place—it would be a cut in pay but the commute really appeals to me-instead of 20 minutes in a car I could spend 30 minutes walking. The job also appears to involve more of my skills and the work seems more varied. Perhaps it’s the thought of a different job. Perhaps it is the change of the seasons but I find myself thinking more about following the plan and writing down my daily goals and so far so good. It looks like I may have lost another pound in just the few days I’ve been making an effort.
