PlateauVille

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I would like to say that I’ve busted my PLATEAU! I’m thinking so anyway. I recall when I first posted how frustrated I was because I did not see any scale changes in 4 weeks; which eventually carried over to two months. But then I’ve read were others have said it’s been months and even a year for them; I know that would have put me in a tailspin. It seems I couldn’t get below 200 the scales would bounce from 203 to 199 and back up again. Well, on my last weigh day; this past Monday the scale read 189.6. Imagine my surprise, boy was I elated. Well, I’m happy to see the scale move again and I would like to think I’m out of PlateauVille for a while. I’ve not changed my tracker to reflect the difference; I’m waiting on the next weigh date to make the adjustment.

What did I do different, nothing major, not really. I’ve added the BodyMedia Fit as a tool for motivation; that keep me moving. I added Fish Oil to my daily supplements. I continue my weight training and cardio; no difference in that and of course trying to maintain sensible eating. So who knows what has happen, I just hope it continues. It’s easy to get frustrated but if we continue to be honest about what we put into our bodies and push ourselves to move a little more; give it 100%; sometimes when you don’t’ feel like it; the results will show; whether they are positive or negative; that’s up to us. I’m trying to remember that myself when I go through the rough times. I’m just glad that I have all of you to vent my frustrations and just say what’s on my mind.

Thanks to all of you and keep pushing!

    Super! It is so stinking frustrating to have the scale stay at the same number (or even go up!). My scale is pretty much staying the same, but that's my fault because I'm not really putting my all into this. I need to get serious!!! I've lost some inches, (1/4" to be precise, but hey! I'm thrilled to see it!) I've knocked one thing down that was my goal: I've gone from sitting on my kiester most of the day to exercising 5 days, sometimes 6, out of 7. So I consider that a win.

    Stick with it. I've noticed even when the scale isn't budging that my clothes are fitting better! Hope it's true for you too! G emoticon od bless you!

    Sometimes your body just needs a bit of time to adjust to its new circumstances before moving on. Sometimes you need to change your lifestyle a bit more. Congrats on your breakthrough!
