It's been a long time since I've blogged here, so I'm feeling a little guilty that for posting a GRRR!

My frustration is numbingly common. After modest gains toward my weight goal - maybe that should read modest losses - I once again have hit a plateau.

At the start of this calendar year, I decided to break down my weight loss goals in two-month periods aiming for a one-pound loss every week. I never exactly hit that, but I've been losing SOMETHING every time. Sometimes it was four pounds, others two, with the usual fluctuations in between. But this is the first time in a while that I've not lost a pound in eight weeks.


Summer is a busy time for me. Which makes me very unique - NOT! Maybe I took former losses for granted. I plan to step up the physical activity and step away from the picnic food and the refreshing adult beverages.

I guess all I can do today is set my next goal.

So Sparkpeople, what do you do when you hit a rut? I'd like to turn my GRRR! into a WOOHOO! in the next eight weeks.

I could use your help!

    Oooooh...yeah those refreshing adult beverages get me right in the waistline! I also have not been eating the best (not terrible, but just too much) and not getting in the strength training that I need to. So, since I too have been on a plateau for some time, my plan is to up the intensity in cardio and add more strength training in.

    You are motivated to make the next 8 weeks better, so just keep that in mind as you approach a workout and you'll see the success that you are hoping for.
