Stuck in the middle
Saturday, July 27, 2013
Its been a while since my last update so I figured I should post a blog. I am still actively trying to lose the 30 lbs I gained during my pregnancy over a year ago. I have had lots of up and downs over that time. Peaking at 210lb before knocking some sense into myself and working it back off again. I havent gotten below 189lbs the entire time though. I always get stuck at 190lb. And so I feel as though I have been stuck in the middle for what seems like an eternity.
I do try to focus on the positives of the past year and a half. I have managed to maintain my weight the entire time. I know that so many who have lost significant amounts of weight turn around and gain it right back. I am proud of myself for not doing so. I am proud that when I found myself sliding down the slippery slope I stopped and climbed back up to my middle ground.
For the past 3 months I have been very consistent with my exercise yet have made no progress scale wise. I am stronger and in better shape, but still stuck in the middle. I dont know if I just dont want it bad enough to try harder when it comes to my calorie intake or if i have just become comfortable in my middle rut.
I would really like to lose at least 15lbs before winter sets in. I am hoping with fall approaching I will break through my middle rut and make some progress.
