Talking to myself

Thursday, December 06, 2012

Today is especially nice, I get to work from home...wish I could do this every day!

Well my weight loss has come to a stand-still, I'm stuck at losing 15 pounds...been this way for the past few weeks.

So what to do?

Chia Seeds? - never tried these but will see if my grocer has them tonight.
Eat more protein? - this makes me nervous because all the protein foods I see have high calories.
More water? - I have a hard time getting 8 cups of water a day...this I can improve upon.
Switch up my exercise routines? - yes I can do this.
Getting in the right frame of mind? - I have to stop worrying about this "plateau"...ditch the scale for a few weeks and meditate with a focus on energy and positive weight loss.

Ok...I'm ready now...follow my path

    I think you have some great ideas to break your plateau. Sometimes the best way is not to worry about it, and just think of how you are being healthy by eating the right foods and exercising. That is the most important thing! Good luck to you! emoticon emoticon

    Sounds like you've got the right idea. Push a little bit harder when you work out, and try new and interesting things :) You can move past the plateau!

    emoticon Sometimes we need to just let our bodies "rest and adjust" before we can move on. Just keep doing what you're doing - you know what needs to be done to be healthy. I too am "hooked on the scale" and am working to convince myself that the number lowering is NOT the only sign of progress.
Do you feel better? Do you have more energy? Are you handling stress better? Do you find yourself controlling cravings? Start coming up with questions to ask yourself, questions that are not just focused on the number on the scale.
Stay determined and strong.

    It's good that you're seeing where you could make improvements and planning to do so. It's so easy to get frustrated and say nothing is working right.

And the waterfall pic is beautiful!
