I weigh in each Sunday evening around the same time. Week 1 I had lost that first rush of water weight 6lbs to be exact, which was great. Last week which was week 2 I lost 2.5. So why in the world did I stay the same this week? I know all about homeostasis and plateaus but this soon in the game? Trust me, I was on point. Walked every single day as I had been. Ate between 1200-1500 cals all week long. Got rest. Why in the name of everything that is holy did I not lose ANYTHING?? Only thing I could think of is that I could be in need of a good cleanse. So that is on the agenda the day after Christmas. I'm trying real hard not to freak out. Today when I got to work I saw that they had baked my most favorite cake: yellow cake w/ choc frosting. I actually considered eating it. Because of course the moment I see no progress I think to myself "wtf is the poing?" But I have already come to far. Starting this venture during the holiday feast season and detoxing so that things that are good for me actually taste good. I can't blow it now. Today I am adding my favorite workout video Walking Off the Pounds with Leslie Sansone, back into the mix. I'm not going to over do it though. I am going to do it 2 or 3x's a week along with my power walk with the boys on the other days. I think that the walking has gotten much easier and I have been really pushing myself. But I think its time to get some other muscles involved. With the Leslie Sansone workout there is a lot of side squats and knee lifting etc. Arms get more involved. So I am hoping that this is what I need to get a little jump start. Anyway, I really blame it on all the yo-yo-ing I've done over the last several years. I had a feeling it would not be consistent. I've probably wreaked havoc on my metabolism at this point. DANG IT!!! I am so pissed today!
