Holy Plateau, Batman

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Ah, the dreaded plateau. I've been at 184 for 3 weeks now despite my efforts and I'm finally learning how to let go. I'm remembering that my healthy habits are forever, not just to make the number on the scale go down. I'm remembering that there is going to be a point when the scale isn't going to move down anymore, and eating well and exercising is what is going to keep it from moving up. I'm remembering to be proud of what I've already accomplished, and to love my body in all its glorious imperfection right now at 184 lbs. I've learned so many important lessons while sitting at this plateau that I'm actually glad that I had the opportunity to reach one. emoticon

    Aliyah, try a week of carb cycling, eat at the high end of your range one day and drop to the low end the next. If you're doing the same workout routine try changing it up. Our bodies adjust to the same old routines all the time, we need to keep them guessing what's coming next so they cannot adapt.
