Back on Track

Saturday, July 07, 2012

I was at a complete standstill for about 5 weeks. I was not making any progress, and I was working out like crazy. I had to take a break. I was determined not to quit, but to exercise a little less and get some information on how to change my eating habits. I wasn't going over my calorie range except for one day a week to "shock" my system, but I still wasn't making in progress. I changed my weight goal on my start page and viola! It cut my calories down about 500 per day and suggested that I do less exercise. It's been about 4 days so far, and I am happy to report that I am 0.6 pounds down. It may not sound like a lot, but it is the progress that I needed to feel like all this is worth it.

Inch by's a cinch.

    No matter the pounds lost (.6 or .2) you are headed in the right direction. Reading your blog is just what I need to do ---keep my calorie count under control. I am with you on just starting to get back on track. I have been off course for way too long and I can feel and see it!

    I was just reading somewhere that if you hit a stall like that, if you will take a few days off of working out, you should start to see progress again. Glad it worked for you!
