Okay, I have hit a brick wall
Friday, April 14, 2017
Yes, it is true. I have hit my first MAJOR plateau since starting my journey. For the last 4 weeks the scale is not moving and has even gone up a pound or two; despite my efforts to continue eating right and exercising.... well, maybe I have cheated here and there... I guess that movie popcorn with the toxic butter substance didn't help me any. And, oh yes, that pizza from Pizza Hut probably didn't help either (even though I gave up my favorite pan pizza crust for thin and crispy--yuk). Skipping a day or two in my weekly exercise could have something to do with it, as well. Eh? The bottom line for me is this.... will there ever come a day when I don't crave these "red light" foods and do I forever have to make exercise a part of my daily routine??? Forgive me, I am just spouting off here.
I know the answers to all these ridiculous questions because I have already experienced the results when I do follow the healthier lifestyle. It feels great going down a size in my clothes, and now being able to fit comfortably in a sports bra, and getting huge benefits in my cholesterol, blood pressure and A1C numbers and not getting breathless so easily, etc. etc. etc. So, rather than getting discouraged through this lull in my weight loss efforts, I must maintain my focus on all the other benefits and keep going. I just needed to whine a bit.
