still in a funk.

Sunday, September 30, 2012

I just don't seem to be losing.

i need to get better at exercising.

the last days i have been really bad at making choices, so i am going to try to do better for the rest of the week. and exercise (can't forget that)

I am not sure if after 10lbs i am just at a platue, or am just making that bad of decisions. or what is mostly likely, it is both.

yesterday was a wash, as was friday..and today isn't much better. I am going to try to keep it under control for the rest of the day. (no more hot wing dip) and a salad for super then back on track tomorrow.

Hopefully I can get back on track!!

i will do some of your suggestions, including adding staying in calories as a streak. that is a great idea. I am about to post a blog because i got off my rump yesterday and exercised.

    Great job on your 10lb weight loss! That's certainly nothing to sneeze at!
Are you on spark coach? The program I watched yesterday was all about plateaus. Here are the essentials of it (that I can remember):
- get back to the food diary and measuring everything.
- are you getting enough sleep?
- do you need to change your exercise routine?
- do you need to update your goal page so the calories are more appropriate for your new svelte self?

I regularly exercise and have for some time, but for me, it really comes down to food intake accountability. Once I kept better track of this, I started seeing results. The minute I stopped, I gained some weight. Ugh! Don't do that! You've worked too hard for those 10lbs!

I recently started a streak for eating within my calorie intake range. My goal is to stay in range 6 out of 7 days. This gives me one day for mistakes, parties, etc. so far, it's working for me.

Losing weight is such a hard job, particularly when there are so many other things demanding of your attention! Make sure you reward yourself for those 10lb you've lossed and keep it food free rewards.

Good luck! We've all been there and you're not alone! Keep us posted on your progress,

    You'll get over this, keep pushing through, I know how disheartening it can be but every healthful choice you make, is making your body that little bit better :)
