A Plateau

Sunday, December 02, 2012

Several weeks ago, I watched an SP video suggesting that our "happy" weight is often what we can reach even though it may be more than our goal weight. Well, for the past three weeks, I've reached a plateau. The scale isn't budging! This is understandable because I haven't been as active at the gym since I fractured my finger on a dumbbell several weeks ago. So the scale hasn't budged. I have two pounds or so to go attain goal weight and six pounds to go to attain optimum weight. And I want the pounds OFF!!

Today, I began the SP Plateau Busting Program through SP. It's back to the gym tomorrow! I need the motivation to hang in and work through a frustrating moment.

    TRYINGTOLOSE64: I blame it on my competitive spirit. I want to achieve goals and am frustrated when I can't. I'm a competitive person, I suppose! LOL

    I wish I could get as close as you are to goal weight. I'd be happy with that!!

  I'm at a plateau but no where near my goal weight. It's good that you are close. I am sure you will do well once you get back with your routine. As for me, I will continue pressing forward.,
