Nothing New

Wednesday, July 30, 2008

Not much going on lately. Working adjusting to my new work schedule and just trying to stay focused on my weight loss.

I've not had a whole lot of luck getting back to my goal weight of 160. I'm stuck on a plateau in the upper 170s. I will try to get off it, but I'm running out of ideas!

    I think plateaus are natures way of allowing our bodies to adjust to the loss we've had up to the point of plateau before continuing to lose. I had 3 plateuas during my 30 lb. loss. Each lasted about 3 weeks to a month..then I changed my exercise, and tweaked things a bit, and was back in the game. Good luck!

    When I was losing weight, I considered plateaus as no weight loss for over a week and a half. I got really upset and frustrated (understandably) when they happened. One day I was researching what I could do, and some lady (with nerve!!) posted that she ate a giant, super high calorie cheeseburger every time she hit a plateau...and that it worked!! She claimed that all of the high calorie and fat intake right at once convinced her body that it wasn't starving, and that weight loss would be ok. I figured, hell...why not?!?

    So...I ate an ENTIRE 1500 calorie Chipotle burrito...and ignored the calories. I pretended that they never happened, and STILL ate my 1500 for the day on top of it. worked!!!! I'd be up about two or three lbs that day, but then over the next few days the burrito weight would come off (because let's face it, 1500 is a lot...but it's not three lbs!!) AND one or two more lbs would ALWAYS come off with it! It was like, a miracle...a delicious miracle ha ha. I'm not sure if it works for everyone, but it works for me and that lady...whom I owe FOREVER for giving me the best and most pleasurable secret to plateaus ever ha ha.

    Anyway, maybe you should enjoy yourself something REALLY bad for you...and see how it goes??? Hee hee. Good luck!!!
