Today was final weigh in for leaves of change challenge I am grateful I got ot take part in this challenge even though I did not do great and lost 5 pounds . but it was an eye opening experience learned more about myself, my triggers, and my attitude. I have been working very hard on what makes me tick and will continue to do so.
I'm either on the longest plateau or my body has decided where it wants to be. Why I stated this is I had time today to reflect on my journey. (as today was a down day as my RA is kicking in and i had to much pain ot walk around and exercise my ankles & feet get most of the pain) Went back on all the challenges I had taken part in since May 2011 when I reach my initial goal weight of 142. In the 18 months I have maintained in the range between 140 and 145 with my average weight being 143.6 .
Back this pass May the PCP told me I needed ot lose more weight wasn't happy about that but decided ot give it a go. Then I realized I needed ot listen ot my body as my body know better. Well I am happy where I am I look healthy and feel healthy at this weight I am fitting into smaller clothes even though the scale isn't moving any more.
So in fact this is either the LONGEST PLATEAU or I finally made home sweet home for my body and its extremely happy there for 18 long months. Yes there have been a few weeks higher then that but it is the average that is important.
I finally made it home now to continue to shape this home by strength training and cardio.
I think this is me I kept chugging along
