does 177 even exist? lol

Saturday, December 03, 2011

for the past month or so I've been unable to pass 178lbs. I keep on adding and dropping the same 1lb, but unable to pass 178 lbs mark. this is a deja vu for me, in the past the lowest I was able to drop down to was 178lbs and bouncing back up, with the difference this time I've been maintaining the ~178lbs almost a month.

I am starting to think that it is not so much a plateau, as a mental block at this point. At times I do feel overwhelmed with what I have accomplished so far, and feel a bit anxious thinking of getting to 170lbs, or getting further down. currently what I want to accomplish is to get out of the obese category, which means to get down to 163lbs (BMI 29.9) but I am trying to figure out why am I holding so dearly to the obese cushion, why do I need this and for what protection, why is this important for my emotional being to keep this "fluff" around myself?

in the meantime I am grateful to loose 37 lbs so far, to b able to wear size 12, to b physically capable of doing so much more than back in July, to have way more positive outlook on life, to b a happier person.

    I'm in just about the same place; see the blog I just wrote, "Uncooperative scale!" I've got 5 lbs, actually 4 and a half, to reach that magical elusive 177 and still hope to do it by the end of the year. If it doesn't happen, it won't be for want of trying.

    I'd say the fact that we are maintaining is a sign of progress. Maybe our bodies just needed a breather before gathering up momentum for the next loss. WE CAN DO IT. The issue is not if, but when. I think we both need a emoticon

    For me the thresh-hold is 180. I hit 179.8 once, then freaked out and bounced back up. I really don't know if 177 exists or if it's just a figment of our imagination. Let me know when you get there will you?
