Plateau Busted and only 10 more Lbs to go!

Friday, June 18, 2010

After another couple weeks or so of non-moving scale I shed 1 more pound and am now within 10 pounds of my initial goal weight! I say initial because that figure is still midway in the "overweight" range and I would like to evaluate my overall health and weight status at the forecast 225 pounds.

I just had to get on here and say something- 40 pounds down! I love it!
Thank you Wife, Spark Friends and Spark People for all the excellent motivation and encouragement. Well, they've started playing the music for the next person to get their award so I best get off the stage now.

    I understand the evaluating part because when I first started SparkPeople I made one goal and then I went and changed it for my overall health. I'm not sure I'll every see the end result but I will try to get there.

    You have done such a great job and should be proud of yourself!

    I feel with you about plateaus. I have gone through a couple, and they are kind of frustrating. I just keep doing what I'm doing so far, and after a week or so, it seems that the plateau kind of busts itself. I think its all about set point. You lose some, you body gets to a set point and then it resists your efforts to loose more, but if you keep everything on-track, the set point goes away, and pretty soon you're loosing weight again.

    40 pounds! Dude, that is some serious weight loss. You should be proud!
