You have a beautiful body, it's like a miracle machine. It has a lot of work to do in order to accomodate the changes you look forward to seeing. Trust your body. It knows what needs to happen internally, you simply must allow it the time to do what is needed. You are SO going to love the result, so take a deep breath, relax, and trust.

I have been on a plateau all summer. I keep telling myself that I am where I am suppose to be and I don't track for a while. But there is a little voice inside of me that says"you can do it!" "Keep tracking, walk that extra 1/2 mile" So I do. we can so it. It might be slow, but we can do it. That's why we are on the slowest looser team.
Be the best that you can be!!!

I believe hitting the plateau is quite normal. I hit one early on and it just won't budge. I think there are some changes I need to make, but I'm not really committed to making them yet. I know I will be though. Just preparing my head for it.

There's no reason to quit. Cause you can only quit if you're on a diet. This is suppose to be a lfestyle change. Like other things in life, it's not always a smooth ride. So you've hit a bump in the road. Choose to go over it, or around it, just keep going. Besides, if you quit, where will that get you????
In GOD We Trust Choose To Lose "If you are going to win any battle you have to do one thing. You have to make the mind run the body. Never let the body let the body tell the mind what to do. The body will always give up. It is always tired in the morning, noon and night. But the body is never tired if the mind is not tired." -General George S Patton, U.S.Army, 1912 Olympian

I find myself getting frustrated! I started out fresh 2 months ago and was excited when I dropped 28 lbs! But now, my weight loss has come to a screeching halt! I am experiencing more stress, and I guess this could be contributing. But I refuse to give up! Visiting Sparkpeople each day is definitely encouraging me to stay strong. I just have to keep telling myself, "I am worth it!"
