Plateau Philosophy

Friday, January 18, 2013

Working on being philosophical about this plateau since I haven't been able to ignore it. Since my body is sticking at this weight for 6 weeks, I am assuming that it needs time to adjust to the rapid weight loss I had immediately after RNY surgery. I have been somewhat obsessed about not wanting excess skin. Perhaps this adjusting is reducing that risk. We'll see...

I am confident this is not my final weight. I am confident that I am rocking the plan - correct nutrition, high quality foods, daily protein at 60 g or more and all my fluids. As for exercise, I meet with my personal trainer on Monday and hope that she'll give me some ideas to challenge my body. In the meantime, I have been challenging myself to increase the intensity at aqua aerobics and have upped my daily steps and stairs climbed. Yesterday was my new high of 32 flights of stairs. Yay!!!

    I look at my plateau like this...if I stay the weight I currently am forever would I be satisfied and my answer is yes...but I know there is more weight loss to come because of the surgery....So continue to stay positive and follow the plan as best as you can.

    Plateau can be discouraging but it will pass when you start doing some different exercises I think. Your body gets used to the same routine. Keep it up!
