I'd say I can't believe it, but I can: I'm 171.6. Again.
I have, once again, done well this past week. My average caloric intake is about 1650, my workouts have been improving, and I got cardio in twice, which is the max amount suggested for the Strong Curves program I am following.
I am going to give the current program one more week before I make any changes to my calories or cardio since this is only my second week really doing things "right". However, during this week I will be thinking about what should change if the scale doesn't move again.
I do understand that my body needs time to kind-of "settle down", for lack of a better term, and accept that this is the way we are doing things right now and it's going to be Okay. That's why I'm sticking with it for another week.
On a slightly different note, I am going to take progress pics at the beginning of March, even if the scale and measurements haven't changed, because I am pretty sure I see some changes in my body. Comparing photos from the beginning will give me a chance to see if I am right or if it's just in my head. But I'm thinking my butt is a little higher and tighter, and my over all symmetry is improved.
This can't really be described as a plateau. A plateau typically occurs after 4 weeks of staying the same despite doing the right things. I am at the two week mark, so not in plateau-land yet.
So, continuing to march on, even if it does feel like it's in more of a circle than a strait line. But such is life, right? The important thing is that I don't give up and do what is best for my health.
And I WILL see size 6 again. Mark my words.
