My adventure in taking on a commitment to a twelve week training program 2 weeks before Thanksgiving is going well. I find I am doing a good job at following through with each workout, watching my intake, and still allowing room for some Holiday goodies. I can see the results in my shape, my endurance, my speed, and the intensity of my workouts.
However, I am finding my self becoming frustrated with the lack of significant weight change. I would very much like to get down to 140-150 and maintain. I just keep sitting on the cusp of breaking into the 150s. My weight has been hovering at 160-162 for 3 weeks. I keep trying to trust the visible results (muscle tone and mass) and that my "when I'm thinner" pants are now too lose.
I have read the "breaking plateaus" articles, increased/decrease intake, change up my workout routines, added cardio/strength, taken it back a notch...Why are these silly little numbers so important to me? Why do you think it is, despite many positive results, we fixate on being able to tell people we weigh and not about improved fitness, better nutrition, overall lifestyle changes...Frustrating
