Stuck! One pound away from milestone, aaaargh!

Friday, November 29, 2013

I've worked really, really hard these past 3 months and have managed to shed about 30lbs and feel great about myself. About 10 days ago, I was thrilled to be one pound away from my first goal. I was thrilled for a few days. And then the weight went up by one pound, and, well, it stayed more or less there. And it's been there for a week even if I've been good.

I fear I have hit a plateau at the very worst time, ugh. I know I have to keep my head up, and keep at it until I get over this little bump, but it's been very disappointing. I know I should put the scale away and only pull it out again in a week, but I can't help it. This past week, I've been stepping on it several times a day, hoping to miraculously shed that last pound before setting a new goal.

The important thing is that I'm keeping up the healthy lifestyle, feeling good about myself and having fun playing sports. But that one little pound is driving me mad, aaaargh!

    Not to worry Arielle, stay with it and you will lose that pound. Meanwhile, look at all the other indicators your body is giving you that you've lost weight The clothes that fit so much better than they did, the additional ease in doing things that used to be hard 30 pounds ago. The behavioral specialist at our Core weight management group used to tell us all the time that ""it's not about the numbers" (I even blogged about it a week or two back), but when you get that close to a goal, it definitely is. All you can do is hang in there and believe in yourself. It will happen soon if you do.

    I know it's hard - but put the scale away. If you must, just weigh yourself one time each day at the same time.

    You will get there !!
