I've hit my first Plateau

Friday, January 14, 2011

I've hit my first Plateau.not sure how I feel . I do know with the holidays, i did great. I haven't gained. I know I've lost a lot but I've always lost weight before but I've always gained it back plus too. I do feel so confident most of the time i'll keep it off this time but the sneaky self doubt sneaks in sometimes and i really get quite scared some days to tell u the truth. I only have 15lbs to goal but would love 25lbs more. . I feel amazing and don't even have any fills either. which i know only 5% of people can lose the weight without any fills... I am very proud. I just don't want to gain any of the weight back. I've have a rough couple of weeks with my internal self beating myself up. I will keep pushing though. I had a wonderful 2010. and have high hopes 2011 will be the same. Thanks for listening. emoticon

    Just focus on maintaining where you are. That is a great accomplishment in itself. Your body has been through a lot this year. Focus on getting strong.

    When you can exercise will make you feel so wonderful...its a whole new area to focus on. Its an essential part of this lifestyle.

    Set up goals to log so many minutes per week and start building up your spark points.

    I am not sure if you have a wii, but I have been using the wii zumba and a wii personal trainer. I can totally work up a sweat in the living room. And if you already have the wii and wii fit doing the free step is a great way to sweat a little while you watch t.v.

    WOW you have lost all of your weight without any fills...that is amazing. Sometimes you will hit a plateau because your bod is trying to catch up to the weight loss. This is the time to take those measurements. If the scale isn't moving the tape measure probably is. Also if you don't lose for more that two or three weeks maybe you do need to get a fill. Maybe just a tiny bit will get those scales to begin moving again. emoticon

    Thank you for all the kind words... I will change it up...it was just weird how it hit me. i knew I'd hit a plateau and was waiting for it . I just felt odd too i guess.

    Don't give up. You can do it. I seem to have that first Plateau as well. All that I have read says it will change. Some advise says eat a little more and lower your calories late in the day. Giving that a try. We can do this! emoticon

    Don't focus on the weight. Take other measurements. You can do this. The weight will come off. Try to shake up your routine. emoticon

    Don't let the self doubt slip in. Remember that this time it is a journey. Good luck on your last few pounds.

    You can do it! You've made it this far, so you know you've got what it takes to get to your goal. The last stretch of weight may be more difficult to lose, but don't lose hope, just keep marching on. emoticon
