In a slump...and dont know what to do!!

Monday, February 18, 2008

I was very excited to make my goal of 226 by my birthday, but since then I am fluxuating from 224.6 up to 228 back and forth. I am trying to watch my sodium and exercise as much as I can and at a good intensity...when I am done working out, I am just dripping with sweat!! I stay in my calorie range 6/7 of the days during the week and try to only have "bad" stuff in moderation and very rarely...but today I weighed in at 228!!!! I know I probably had a little more sodium yesterday cause the Hubby made chili soup, but what else can I do? I am constantly drinking water to help flush things out. When I watch things it sometimes doesnt help, when I dont watch them- they obviously dont help- I have been switching up my exercise schedules with DVD's, Eliptical, Treadmill (jog & walk at intervals), Strength Training, there something I am missing? Stress levels have been low lately so cant count that and I dont have my period I am out of options. I hope something starts working soon because this is very frustrating!!! I am blessed to have lost the 34 pounds I did, but sometimes getting to that next pound loss is sooo incredibly hard.

I hope to get the scale moving down soon and dont pull out hair to get there!!!

    I just recently had the same thing happen to me, got past it though. I lost 4 pounds last week and this week I have lost 1 more. If you want to try what I did. Here it is:
    This is called the " 3 Day No-Meat Trip"
    For 3 days no meat of any kind & no dairy of any kind. Eating only fruits & veggies & beans & nuts. Drinking lots of water. No drinks with caffeine, sugar or sodium. (Make sure that you keep your calories in your normal range)
    This got my weight to moving again. I just did it for those 3 days and it dropped 4 pounds. I have been back to my regular eating and another pound done gone!
    Hope this helps. It has helped me bunches.

    I agree with Goddess. That may just be the problem!

    Just asking..... Do you zig-zag your food too? Sounds like you may be at a plateau. Have you checked out some of the articles? It will be o.k. just take a little time to work it out. DD
