Bye, bye plateau!

Saturday, May 18, 2013

Finally, I have busted through this dreadful plateau!

It lasted just over 5 months......and believe me when I tell you, it was very discouraging......!

I tried everything I could think of to bust through......I stepped up my workouts.......lowered my calorie range......raised my calorie range......incorporated new foods......and nothing really worked. I actually thought that my body was rebelling on some level......but i stayed focused on my goal.......

I knew that eventually I would persevere....and that my body would succumb to my new lifestyle.......that's what kept me going! There were several weeks that I didn't weigh in......and I decided that it was sheer torture to do so.......but my clothes were getting looser and, I knew that even though the scale wasn't moving, the inches were......

So, now that the scale is catching up with the inches lost I can truly say, bye, bye plateau!

    congratulations!! believe me, I know what you were feeling. I had a 6 month plateau. During this long weight loss journey, I am most proud of the fact that I stayed strong and didn't give up during my plateau. I just kept plugging away. I lost 30 lbs. then my 6 month plateau. I broke my plateau in February and I have lost almost 20 more pounds since.

I hope you have a lot of success now that you broke your plateau! good luck and congratulations! added you as a friend.
