I'm stuck at a plateau now, so I'm going over everything I'm doing. I went over portion control, exercise, fast break goals, and my own goals. I definitely feel better, look better, and have more energy, so something is working. The scale is bouncing around 2 lbs each way and back again. I was steadily losing weight for the past 3 months (I lost 25 lbs.), but now I feel like I've been stuck for awhile.
I put my bicycle in front of a TV so I can work out while watching the news before I go to work. I buy fresh foods every few days, and I rarely eat out. I'm drinking more water, instead of other drinks. I know that I need to increase my exercise, so I'm working on that.
I'm having trouble eliminating salt. I don't like it, but it's in everything. Any time I can find foods that are salt-free, I buy it. Even bread has a lot of salt, but I found an Ezekiel bread that doesn't have salt.
I'm not going to give up on anything, even if it takes 6 months to lose that 20 lbs. I'm not following any diet, just using Sparkpeople to eat healthy and track it, so I feel like I could do this forever.
Wish me luck on getting through this plateau.
