Perhaps I was a bit hasty...

Saturday, September 21, 2013

I was too quick to call a two week halting of weight loss a plateau. I think this was because of how quickly the weight dropped off at first. I made a very big mistake in trying to restrict my calories further. I knocked my blood sugar entirely too low yesterday and felt awful all day long. The scale seems to be moving in the right direction now, albeit much slower than before, but slow, healthy weight loss is what I want, after all.

    I fight with this inner demon all the time . Sometime plateauing for months and refusing to pay attention to increasing my calorie intake to satisfy my calories out - Make sense - Although Sparkpeople do change my intake calories on my tracker cause I am not eating enough for the Power House workouts that I am doing. But - I wanted to hurry - So about a month ago I had a serious issue almost the same as your sugar and really it took me a month to recover . So I have decided not to pay attention to the scale but to concentrate on my nutrition and NSV. I like what Aunt B said - good one - K emoticon

    Sometimes we reach a plateau where scale wise at least, nothing seems to be happening. Periodically our bodies to to adjust to weight loss and have time to set up a new set point or normal. It can be discouraging at that point; patience and perseverance will pay off!

    You are making progress! Way to go!!!!!

    I read this in a magazine and thought I would pass it along to you.
    Success is your next stop!
    Feeling stuck?
    Your inner GPS is just recalculating. In fact, you've come further than you think, and your dreams are closer than they appear. And once you fill your tank with positive thinking, there will be no stopping you!

    I liked the GPS reference...made sense to me. Have a great Sunday, keep making those healthy choices and always remember this is not a marathon, but a journey to be taken one day at a time. I lost 1/2 pound a week, on average throughout my journey. emoticon
