wondering if i will ever get over the peak


Wednesday, April 23, 2014

When does a plateau stop being a plateau?????
I have not lost a single pound in over a year.
While I have gained, and lost and gained and lost the same several pounds many times over.
I have NOT lost beyond the number I was at in January 2013.
It is very disturbing and puzzling.
Most weeks, I work hard, not as hard as I could or should.
But yes, most of the time I am still in this mind frame.
LOSE WEIGHT.
Yet I never do.
I have decided to do the whole blood work up, vitamin levels, hormone and thyroid levels, A1C.
And yes, as much as I dread it and have postponed it, I have an appointment with the gynecologist next week.
Time to get all these hormones checked and see if that might play a role in this nonsense.
My friend went to a place where they do bio-identical hormone testing and put her on the hormones she was lacking in, and vitamin b12 shots and shes lost about 15 pounds.
I doubt that I will go there, as it isnt covered by my insurance and I do not need the added expense, but if my doctor can help me identify issues, hormonal or whatever that might be causing this lack of weight loss, then I am willing to give it a shot.
For my own contribution, I am going to the walking track.
Sun is coming over the mountain and hopefully it is bringing a little warmth.
Gonna get my walk on and soak up some vitamin D.
Have a nice day to all.

    I haven't lost either, but I know why.

My advice, keep trying.

With the weather getting better, maybe we can do it. emoticon

    Good idea. You should print out a the last 30 days of your nutrition tracker and take it with you. Perhaps she can offer advice there as well? My loss has been very slow all year so I started a new workout this month which burns 300-400 more calories each week. Which made me extra hungry, so I ate more. Not a lot more...but it has been enough to plateau me for the last 3 weeks! So I'm back to tracking everything and measuring more carefully. All of last week I was feeling hungry but this week is going much better. Hoping to break this plateau this week or next.
Good luck to you! emoticon

    One of my good friends recently has had fantastic luck with hormone adjustment. She's lost weight for the first time in years, after lots of trying. I hope you find a similar answer!

    Yes, get it checked out for sure. Are you still tracking your food? Maybe some little tweak here or there might be just the thing to knock you off that blessed plateau. It must be so discouraging.

I love the sunshine - but we haven't had too much lately so I use my special light therapy box. I'm still walking all the same because the dogs really need to get out and therefore I get dragged along emoticon
