Stalling, but happy!

Sunday, April 01, 2012

So, I didn't enter my weight this week because I couldn't weigh on weigh in day. However, I know that I'm not moving down further, because I had weighed all week. I actually went up a tiny bit, and have not broken past the 131 low mark.

I think there are a lot of reasons for this. I could deeply investigate them here, but just know that I'm doing some thinking about it. I've not been in the 130 range for years - maybe it is mental. Maybe it is just that I've not made any new spark goals and that I'm stagnating. There are lots of maybes. However the weirdest thing is this...

I really don't care at the moment.

Here are some reasons why:
1) I'm still working out regularly. Some weeks more than others, but overall? I'm still MUCH more active than I was pre-sparkpeople.

2) I'm well into my healthy BMI, which was huge goal for me.

3) I feel AWESOME! Every day I notice a muscle or a body part that has changed, and I've got that boingy, tight feeling all over that I love.

4) I fit into clothes that I haven't in ages, and I think I look pretty dang good in them too.

So, I'm either plateauing or stagnating or defeating myself or whatever, but I can't get myself hyped up about it. I want to get to 125, but seriously? I'm 6 pounds away. Those last pounds are unlikely to just fall off fast, so I'm thinking patience is a virtue. Either what I'm doing will eventually get me moving again, or it won't. If I have to change in a few weeks, I will, but for now, I'm tracking, exercising, loving my sparkfriends, and feeling pretty much just right in my own skin.

    You radiate positivity from each of your blogs. Sometimes I can feel it seeping off the computer and into me. Such a fabulous thing first thing in the morning.

    And you do look fabulous!

    There we go again, paralleling each other, lol. Glad you are not getting hyped up about it, you LOOK great and you FEEL great, what more can one ask for. Well, besides losing the last few pounds, hehe. You are doing fantastic.

    I am kind of in the same place right now. I am ten pounds above my goal weight, but I am at my goal pants size. I am thinking the extra weight is muscle, because the last time I weighed this, I was about two pants sizes larger. I figure I'm good.

    Could it be that you're not eating enough? Ironically it's one issue we have a tendency to overlook; check your differential chart when you lose with when you don't and make an educated guess :) I have a goal that's + or - 5 lbs, too. It's nice to be on the 0 mark though; perhaps it's time to change your ticker to a weight maintenance one :)

    You (and I and everyone else) joined because we were dissatisfied with who we were and what we looked like. The scale doesnt need to move because you are now happier in your own skin. That is the victory.

    Go you!
