I have been doing fair this week. I haven't tracked my food and I am still at 50 pounds lost and not budging on the scale. I just don't think I am ever going to get under 210 pounds it seems. I am hanging in there but I want to reach my goals and there all screwed up cuz I quit losing. I am also doing my 5 pounds by November 30th and have lost 1 but that put me at 211. I keep gaining 3 then losing 3 etc. never going under 210.
So then I have to redo my goals all over again. I saw one ladies weight loss journey of 100 pounds lost and she lost 1 to 2 pounds steadily every week never faltering. I can feel skinny-I can smell it and touch it and want it so bad. I am down 2 sizes but I am not satisfied with that. I have a wedding in December and I wanted to be at least 200 by then and its not working. I am drinking my water and exercising 3 times a week. Maybe I will up my exercising to 4 or 5 times per week maybe that will help. I have only lost 1 inch in October so I am not losing that way either.I could eat everything in site right now. but I won't.I haven't exercised yet today but I will. I keep putting everything off I don't know what's wrong with me. I just wish this journey was over its been a year and 2 months now and I am still at 50 pounds. It just seems to be going so slowly.Sorry I keep rambling on but I feel a little down today on myself. I need to perk up and get moving or I think I might go crazy-not really.I feel very motivated but nothings happening.I feel like I am at a standstill forever I am destined to be fat forever.well guess I will close for now and figure out what to eat for supper than go see my mom at the nursing home.Best wishes to all my sparkfriends I love you dearly.Be Blessed, Lu Ann

    I just read today on Sparks Coach not to give up; that sometimes this plateau lasts a few weeks.

    Try not to worry.

    I have been on here since June 27th and as of today have lost 46lbs I think there was only one week I didn't lose. I track like crazy. Because I know I need to. I read articles. I blog and I massively cut out sodium. Like hardly ever add it at all. Just tonight I really wanted to eat. Just to eat. You know what I mean. So I said to myself. Okay. But first, go drink a big glass of water (delay it) then IF you are still genuinely wanting to eat, have an apple. THEN if you STILL want to have something, have a diet soda. Then if you are still dying, making some air popped popcorn. All in that order. Well, the apple is still sitting on my desk. lol! Sometimes I have to just delay gratification long enough for it to pass and it does. It might be minute by minute that I am getting by but somehow I do! I KNOW you are going to get past this hump and we will get you to 200 by that wedding! Stay focused and stick with our team. Reach out to us. anytime!!!!!! I will pray for you and I just know that you have it in you! This struggle right now is for a reason and someday it will be made clear to you as to why you went through it! love, Kim

    Can you love yourself where you are right now? You have lost a lot of weight. I understand that you are discouraged because of the plateau and stupid scales not budging, but girl you have fight in you!!!! You are staying on track and exercising too. Give it time and it will come off. emoticon
    It has been awhile since my scales have moved much too. emoticon

    I know. I hate plateaus, and I resent the fact that my body does NOT do anything on my schedule.

    Love yourself. Let God love you too.

    Many journeys involve layovers in airports and train stations and bus stations far from your destination. As long as you don't get back on the bus or plane or train going back to where you came from you're still making progress!

    On a practical side, what about trying Dr. Atkins' fat fast for a a couple of days to get things moving again:

    You're allowed to get it all out. That's what we're here for! Congrats on the 50lbs lost. Thats a huge accomplishment. Don't beat yourself up over the last few lbs. They will come. Just stay focused. It does help to revise your goals. Try not to stress out too much about things and just take it 1 day at a time. What can you do today? You can do this! We are here for you! Be proud of how far you've come and stay focused. You CAN do this!

    I think when we are older it takes longer. The good news is you are maintaining. You might to change your routine a little to get your body going again. I have lost 29-30 pounds since Jan I know slow. I take hope in the fact that it is staying off. Blessings on your healthy lifestyle journey! emoticon
