The dreaded Plateau

Thursday, January 17, 2013

Well, I've been hovering around 170 for about three weeks, I think it's about time I admit it to myself; I've plateaued. I lost 40lbs on just diet alone, and I really can't complain about that, but it's the exercising I always had a difficult time sticking to. I'll have to re-organize my diet to include foods to keep me energized for working out, and I'll have to start into an exercise routine. I think this moreso than anything else before may break me. Arg, so much frustration and disappointment

    I find I cannot (or maybe do not) exercise at home. I make it a daily routine to hit the gym by 9 a.m. and I make it usually 6 days a week. If I were to say I will exercise at home at 9 a.m. I would get busy doing something and just delay it. Walking with a buddy can be good advise - just make sure they are really motivated and won't leave you hanging - as that just becomes an excuse not to go either.

you can do it!

  I hate exercising too! It helps me to get a buddy to walk with. I've also enjoyed Coach Nicole's new exercise video. It's a nice work out but doesn't make me feel like a total klutz. I'm plateauing right now, too. I hate it. I may have to start eating at the lower range of my calorie limit (yikes!). I'm not looking forward to that. Hang in there! At least exercise makes you feel good!

  Exercise will definitely speed up your weight loss. Find an activity you like to do. It will become so enjoyable (I know, hard to believe) that you will miss it if you don't do it.
Good luck! And keep up the awesome work!
