weight training

Thursday, November 29, 2012

I've been at the same weight for about 2 months now. And it's 20-25 pounds greater than the weight I need to be. I keep exercising - cardio and weights. I keep walking when I can. I religiously record my food. I stay on track with what I should eat about 13 days out of 14 - and on that off day, I don't go crazy - maybe 200 calories over my range. And now we are heading into the roughest month for me - cookies, holiday parties, special events right and left. I usually gain during the month of December. Here I am at a plateau and facing a month where it is very difficult not to gain.

But I have one thing to celebrate. Yes, I am overweight, but I can tell that all the weight training has made a difference. When I was at this weight a year ago, my body was bigger. My pants were tighter. My arms were flabbier. Lifting weights has helped me fit into my clothes better - so for that I am grateful.

    I'm in the same boat as you. I've lost 30 pounds, but haven't gone down a size in clothing. But, I can feel the difference. My body is skinnier and things are fitting me looser. I just which the size on my pants would change. I look like someone with droopy drawers.

    You are making progress thays awesome. Some advice to get off your plateau? Shake things up.. Re-evaluate you food... Check your calorie range. Change your workout, do something new... What about adding some jogging? Try Kickboxing (awesome calorie burn). December is a hard month make a plan on how to handle the parties, what can you do to make it less stressful? Keep your chin up.... Keep pushing
