Get through that wall!

Sunday, January 31, 2010

I've just gone through a long plateau. This is when I would usually give up in the past. I've been good...why haven't I lost weight recently? It's like you've run into a wall and can't get through...just like this statue I saw in Paris recently. But this time, I'm going through...I've just exercised with my band and then I'm doing the elliptical. It's not going to win this time...I AM! I will be VERY active in Costa Rica....I expect to come back and tell you all that I lost more weight. You can get off a plateau...then YOU'VE got to decide if your weight will go up or down...it's going DOWN this time!! If I want to be healthy, it's got to go down quite a bit! emoticon

    On the My Line program, our weight loss coach always encouraged people to take a double calorie day when they hit a plateau. Only do this though if you have someone who will hold you accountable to cut back to your normal calorie count the day after. Maybe it is time to celebrate Valentines Day! emoticon

    Great picture! Do you know the story behind the statue? A man was given the power to walk through walls as long as he only used the power for good. He decided to use the power to rob a bank...and he became forever stuck half way through the wall.

    Wonderful picture to go with your blog entry. Visuals are SO powerful and I really loved this. I know you will have a great time in Costa Rica. I hope you will share a few of your favorite pictures when you get home.

    Wonderful to hear from you, Paris although I have never been and probably never will be able to go, I often dream of visiting that wonderful artistic place.
    I am so glad that you have made the decision to break through the wall that has been holding you back.
    I too have made a monumental achievement. I reached my goal weight and I posted a blog about my journey which was requested by Spark Guy Chris Downie the founder of Sparks. It made the most popular blog list and I think I am helping a lot of people by telling my story. If you have not read the blog yet please find the time to do so.
    I am very proud of your accomplishments. Onward and downward you go. Stay in touch. Sandy
