Back to Basics
Saturday, November 23, 2013
I have been stuck at this "platau" weight for far too long. Consistency is key and I have to get back to the business of checking myself every day.
I have been doing this for a year now, and I moved away from food tracking at the end of summer. I was starting to feel resentful that with all my tracking and exercising and good choices the weight just wasn't coming off. I knew my meal planning and food choices were pretty on target, so I thought giving myself a little break from tracking was fair and a way to grow into this as a lifestyle and not a "diet". I would periodically log for a day or two just to keep myself in check. At the same time, I changed up and added to my exercise program. I thought this might give me the kickstart i would need to start losing again.
Several months later and I haven't moved an inch. I can only think of one or two other things to try: add weight lifing (which i really don't like but will do) and go back to tracking. It's kind of annoying, but I've got no other ideas. I can't even say there have been an abundance of NSV's. My shape has changed a little, and there is a bit more room in my jeans, but not they way I would expect for the amount of effort I feel I'm putting in to this.
No pity party. This is my new lifestyle, so it's fine to just keep doing it, but I definitely confused about why I'm not seeming more change. I know there is more weight to lose for my long range health, so I just want to figure out this puzzle.
