Reviewing the Situation

Monday, October 01, 2012

So, thinking about September, despite this latest plateau I am on, I am feeling better about what I accomplished. This month, I lost over 7 lbs after coming off of my August plateau. On September 1st, I met my original goal of 147. Today I am 139.6 and my new goal of 137 is not too far off, though it may be a few weeks at this pace.

While the plateaus are coming a little too fast for my taste lately, I am at the end of a long weight loss journey (19 months, 160+ lbs). This is just one last little stumbling block before I settle into maintenance, the Final Plateau, one I am looking forward to!

    What a wonderful job of losing weight..160 pounds!

Plateaus are the hardest times..even in maintenance. You are doing everything right, but you are not going down. This is so hard.

Good for you making it through August and the plateaus..Good luck on your new goal.

    Woo Hoo! Great job on being so close to maintenance.

Love the quote by Blue42Down - I need to remember that since I feel like I've been on one long plateau lately.

    I don't remember who said it, but they said something like ... "imagine your plateaus are just practice runs at maintenance and they won't seem so unbearable."
