I was so excited to see the scale drop to 202 a couple weeks ago, and then it got down to 200 last week! Now it's stuck on 200 and it's frustrating!
I've been doing cardio every day.
I've done strength training 5 times this week (no area 2 days in a row).
I've been staying in my calorie range.
The only thing I haven't been doing as well is with chocolate. Since I've started on SP I've always made an allotment in my daily calories for a little bit of chocolate. Lately that little bit has turned into more. That means less healthy food and more chocolate to stay within calories. I do just fine during the day. I portion my meals and know that is enough food and I'm past the hump of eating extra just because it tastes good. Why can't I seem to do that with chocolate? I find myself relaxing after the kids go to bed with that one piece of Halloween candy, which turns to 2, then 3. Instead of staying on the low end of my calorie range, I fill it to the top with the chocolate.
I think I need to take advantage of Thanksgiving this year as a time to give up chocolate. My whole family is getting together and I have a nephew that is allergic to milk. This means the odds of there being chocolate are pretty slim. Maybe the long weekend without it will be enough to get me over the hump. I'm hoping that will also help me get past the 200s and get firmly into the 190s!
