I thought everyone was crazy when they said eventually I would hit a plateau. It didn't happen until I hit 98 pounds lost. I simply could not get past that point.
But then for months my monthly visitor disappeared. I have attempted to put weight back on, nice and slowly trying to make sure it's muscle and not fat and finally my visitor came back! So now I'm TRYING to plateau and maintain this weight. =)
MUSCLE DOES NOT WEIGH MORE THAN FAT 5 lbs = 5 lbs
5 lbs of muscle simply takes up less space than 5 lbs of fat!
If nothing tasted as good as being thin felt, no one would ever get fat!
Plateau heck, I was heading the opposite direction. There are articles on SP about breaking plateaus, check them out. When I hit one, I generally just give up so I really don't know how to break them, but I've heard that you can change-up what you're doing such as: change your exercise or change your eating for a few days, anything that changes the routine your body has developed.
Good luck. Since I've made my first new years resolution in years and decided to get back on track, I hope you figure it out so that you can help me when I need it.
With Christ's love to all,
Goals for 2015: This year my goal is to have Gastric Sleeve Surgery. It's the best and last thing I intend to try. I'm sorry for trying and never losing more than 10 pounds that I always gain back.
