Plateau....

Avril Lavigne sings it....Keep holding on...I would prefer that it didn't relate to me and the plateau I'm on.

I've maintained the same weight for 3 months!

I don't think it's always about what people want to believe it's about...you know, "My darn body is just stuck!" This time, it's not my body getting stuck and comfortable, it's about me getting comfortable. Relaxing the standards during the journey. Is it sabotage, because I really do want to reach my goal?! I don't think so.

Well, I have a theory for plateaus. Again I'll say, "this plateau, anyway."
You work really hard, you have success and you are changing your body...I believe that I reached this phase where my brain needed a break. An adjustment period that turns on so you can get use to sticking with the program. It seems like a common plateau, as if you always just walk on the treadmill and your body has gotten used to it, but it isn't. It's much more profound. It's the emotional adjustment that will eventually help you stay the course forever. It sounds plausible to me. I really truly believe that I am in a place I've never been before.

After 3 months of chilaxin' my standards and maintaining, I am feeling the full force of inspiration once again...how great is that? I think I am ready to come off my plateau and slowly make my way through to my goal!

The determination that comes and helps you stick to your plan, that helps you choose yogurt over ice cream and fruit instead of candy. Oh baby, I'm ready.
You watch, It's happening now!
I'll watch you too, if you ask me to!

Have a great day.

What a fabulous attitude! And, the fact that you have maintained (not gained) means that you ARE getting used to this lifestyle - which is what it's all about, right?

    Good for you! I think sometimes we need to take a bit of a holiday from our goals in order to put it all back into perspective and jump into it whole-heartedly again.
