Never Ending Plateau
Saturday, August 18, 2012
For the last 6 weeks, I have stayed within the same 2 pounds. Up a little, down a little but overall the same place. I've been keeping up my walking everyday (or something else if it is raining), mowing the grass, riding my stationary bike... I've been a lot more active than usual. I've been careful with calories, sodium, protein, fiber, etc. I am almost always within my ranges. I know that I have gained some muscle, but there is no real reason I shouldn't have lost SOMETHING in the last 6 weeks! My calorie differentials are good - always between 1000 and 1500 (and a few 1800+!) I am getting plenty of sleep at night, I'm not retaining water as far as I can tell... I am doing everything RIGHT!
Please... give me your best tips to get over this plateau so I can move forward! I hate feeling that the last 6 weeks of effort have been a complete waste! I should be another 10 pounds down at least! :(
