Finding the trail off the plateau

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Well. The first thirty or so pounds have come off almost easily. Thanks to Spark People I am rediscovering the value of planning my meals and just using good common sense on portions, food selection and preparation.
But now I have been stuck at 249 lbs for over a week. The phyiscal limitations I have make getting enough exercise a real challenge. Now , today, I begin phase two of my own personal wellness project. Stopping smoking.
I will attend my first stop smoking class later today at my local VA clinic. There are some really great people there by the way.
I think today will be the day I join the fitness center downtown and begin their aquatic classes. Finance has been a difficulty but I think it's now time. I must find a way to get enough exercise to burn enough calories to continue to drop the weight. Doing this while trying to quit smoking will be difficult. But I try to remember how much better I feel already with the progress made.
Now it will just have to be on step at a time , day by day. emoticon

    Sounds like you are doing all the right things. Plateaus happen so don't worry about it.

    Don't beat yourself up for just a one week plateau. I've endured 2-3 week plateaus, and I bet you'll find others with much longer ones. Your body sometimes just has to take a beak to adjust to the new you!!
