Dreaded Awful Plateau

Monday, June 22, 2009

That darn scale is just staying right in place.... I guess the good thing is, it ain't going up either!

I have to get more committed to daily exercise. I did exercise 2x (half hour on the elliptical) once yesterday and once Thursday night but obviously I know that's not enough. But still (wah) I think the scale should move!

I guess I am feeling frustrated that I had this band installed and am eating so much less, and differently (no sugars or much carbs) and it won't just move already. So far I have lost 32.5 lbs. since April but still.... I would take 1 lbs. a week -- please!!!!!! Pretty please?????

You would think SOME weight would come off.

Back to the daily grind.... grrrrr.... I will beat this plateau - you watch!!

    Wow, 32 pounds since April is incredible!!! I think your body is probably playing catch-up. After losing such a large amount of weight in a short period of time, you might be in plateau mode for a bit while your metablism is adjusting. I've heard it said that during those times, you are likely to lose inches, even though the scale isn't changing. Sometimes it can just be from being in a rut--if your eating and exercise plan are the same for awhile, the body can get used to things the way they are and adjust to that the "norm" as what it takes to keep things at status quo level. Changing things up a bit helps--introducing a different exercise or increasing frequency/intensity, or eating differently (more carbs some days, more protein others) sometimes helps to "shock" the system a bit and get things moving again. Things will eventually start moving again, so just try to hang in there. The waiting is always the hardest part.
