I'm in a bit of a little mini plateau right now. The first time I hit 159.8 was on April 19, which was two weeks ago. I was so thrilled to finally see a number under 160. But since then I've been fluctuating. On April 22, I was back up to 161.6, but then April 26 I was back down to 159.4. April 28, down to 159.2. Then April 30, back up to 160.8. And then this morning I was back down to 159.8.
Now, the cause of this mini plateau is neither my food or my exercise. This is a true plateau.
I wear a bodymedia fit armband, so I know all of my calorie output and I track my food religiously so I know every calorie I eat.
Over the last 14 days I have eaten an average of 1560 calories per day and I have burned an average of 2555 calories per day, giving me an average calorie deficit of 955 per day.
Scientifically speaking, this should have given me a nearly 4 pound weight loss over the last two weeks, but that is not what has happened.
Bodies do not conform to science, at least my body does not conform to science.
One of the things that I have had to learn is how to be patient with my process. I'm doing every thing right. I'm exercising, I'm eating good clean meals and I'm taking all of my doctor prescribed supplements.
I just happen to have a slow metabolism and it takes a lot of work to get the weight off me. So I will just keep doing what I am doing and eventually the weight will come off.
I think that my body is probably going through some composition changes and it's just not showing up on the scale yet.
Update 5-6-13 - yay, I just broke the plateau this morning, I weighed 157.4 this morning.
