"At least I'm not gaining" doesn't cut it anymore!

Wednesday, April 28, 2010

So here I am, on a plateau for 2 months. I could always say "at least I'm not gaining", but that would be the OLD Diane. No excuses...plateaus go away, when you eat less and move more...which I'm not doing lately. Here it is...spring...almost summer...and I seem to be content with the 26 pound loss. But I still weight 198 pounds!!! Way too much for my 5'5" body! WHY am I falling back into old habits? Sitting on the couch after supper instead of taking a walk...sneaking that cookie in the faculty room, when I haven't done that in so long...handling stress by eating something...

I know better now. I was doing so well... I want this to be the time I actually do it! Just saying it, though, won't make it happen. I need to get back on track and just do it!!

    Try not to beat yourself up. There has to be a way that you can get that ole' scale moving again.

    Maybe ,just try a different exercise or try to incorporate another way of consuming more water

    I know I do not have the answers ,just trying to give you some new ideas

    Please hang in and don't give up

    Plateaus can make us lose motivation. I find that as I'm getting older, my metabolism must not be the same as when I was younger. It takes longer to lose one pound. Moving and eating less can help to lose, but that's not always the answer. Hope you find a way to bust the plateau. Stick with it!

    One step at a time, you will do it. Taking an honest look at things helps me too. Best wishes.
