Plateau broke today

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

It is so disappointing when the scale doesn't budge. However, throughout I tried to stay focused on the positives. I have dropped 2 sizes in my clothes, I managed to maintain my losses, I have continued to exercise and not revert back to my old horrific eating habits and realize how much better I feel overall. And, of course, the best part is that my blood pressure and A1c numbers have significantly improved.

Then, today out of nowhere, I dropped down 2 more pounds. My doctor reminds me that I don't have to be "in a race" to lose my weight. As long as I keep doing what I have been doing, he says the weight will come off. So, I am going to follow his advice and not agonize over the pounds coming off so slow.

    Great path! Absolutely! You didn't gain your weight in a few months, probably not even in a year. So it goes away slowly too. We all wish it were faster.

    That said, a continued loss, though not so fast, is easier on the body, and the skin. Skin has a chance to slowly shrink. The weight will come off because you've changed things.

    You feel better, medical tests confirm that you are healthier. Keep going!!!

    This is great advice that your doctor gave you. You have to let those non-scale victories be your motivation when the scale does not want to change. I have now learned to be motivated by knowing I have finished each day staying on my plan. This is what makes getting up in the morning more exciting. The scale eventually has to budge. emoticon
