EEK!!! Spark Coach Plateau Blog

Thursday, December 06, 2012

The scale is not moving. Luckily, my charming personality and good looks are favorable enuff to keep professional help on the payroll for cheap :) My trainer keeps suggesting shakes but, I need to bite my cals.She's a vegan which is totally cool but every thing is not for everybody. I am most afraid of being lactose intolerant and unable to contol my flatulence with milk protein shake.

    I'm sorry to hear that you've hit a plateau. As hard as it is, just keep going. Do the best you can. Soon, you'll start seeing changes!

    Patience is part of this journey, the plateau will break, try mixing up your work out a bit or mix up your caloric intake some, but keep the basics of your plan going.

    By the way, speaking of flatulence. Have you ever been to a seniors' exercise class? My mother tells me it is a real rootin' tootin' experience!

    I have been there, still there, still hanging over the old plateau like Wiley Coyote checking out the Roadrunner! Who wants to drink their calories when food is so enjoyable to eat. Hang tough! emoticon

    I hear ya. I am lactose intolerant. For 30 years now. I make my own smoothies with a protein powder called Solgar Whey To Go. It's 98% lactose free. Now I don't know how something that says "whey" can be that but I'm here to tell ya it doesn't bother me a bit.
    Oh, and I could never ever be a vegetarian. I love my meat.

    Oh , and thank goodness for charming personalities and good looks uh?

    Hey, I say listen to these Sparkfriends!!! They know what they're talking about. I would be very wary of going to shakes also. Hang tough!!!

    Shakes are generally not the best way to go. Better to get your food from food sources, not powder. Your body may just be rebalancing before getting ready to lose weight again. Just keep careful track of your food and exercise and keep pushing! Don't be afraid to change things up, either!

    What I have I learned from the month I spent at 195.5?

    Stay the course.

    It sucks to stay the course.

    It takes WORK to stay the course.

    Just trust the process, the scale will move. Plateaus don't last forever. The things I was told that helped me:

    1. If you aren't weighing and measuring anymore, get back to that
    2. Keep in mind most people eat about 100-200 calories more than they realize, so shaving off that amount will keep you closer to the range you want.
    3. Keep yourself honest about the amount of activity, don't cheat!

    I was guilty of all three things above. Once I bit the bullet the scale started moving again (albeit still slower than I would like..)

    Keep it up!

    Patience, grasshopper. And if you shave 100-200 calories off the allowance for a day or two, your weight will drop for sure.
