I've hit a plateau. For two weeks now the scale has been slightly higher- 178.2 and now 178.6. I changed up my exercise routine to exercise more this week. I have tracked my food and tried to make good choices. I have stayed in my calorie range. Yesterday I splurged on a little icecream bar that was 180 calories- but I didn't go over my calorie range.
I know that I am not supposed to put all my feelings of success at the mercy of my scale, but it is depressing for it to be going higher and not lower while I am sticking to my plan.
I will stick to the plan though -I WILL! I will not go back to where I was when I started. I am not going to give up. I feel much better than when I started this journey. I am stronger. I can go up the stairs without feeling winded. I can manage my stress better. I am getting much less overwhelmed with things in my life because I am learning to set goals and take baby steps toward them. I am not having panic attacks like I was when I wasn't taking care of myself.
If anyone has any tips for busting through this plateau, please let me know. I would love some advice and tips.
