Weigh In Wednesday – Keeping It Real

    

     I have no weight loss to report this week. In fact my weight is up  a bit today and my size 8’s are feeling a little tight around the tummy. This isn’t a “weight loss plateau” it’s a mental road block. I gotta be honest, I have fallen in love with my “healthier lifestyle” to the detriment of my “weight loss”. I gravitate toward healthy eating choices, I try to maintain proper portion control. I still go to the gym, more often in fact than ever before, I am still putting in cardio, more than even as a teenager when I lost down to 115 pounds but the calorie restriction required to lose the additional weight is very unappealing and I find myself as of late not really sticking with it at all. I am searching this week for the motivation to get back there. I know all the “rules” and lots of “tricks” but I have to want to use them. Any great suggestions to help me get motivated again? Affirmations are at the top of my list. What else do you recommend?

    Sandee, as you know losing weight has been a struggle all my life. I have lost the 25 lbs and now I am stuck. I know what will help me is getting down to business with excercise. As you already know after losing sooo much you reach a plateau and do you think that is what is happening to you? I have been told to reduce your carb intake to get over that plateau, what do you think in your case?

      I appreciate the insight. I know that the body can go through plateaus, and mine has several times along the way but I know my dedication is wavering. I am not keeping to my calorie goals the way I need to. It’s time for some refocusing. I am so proud of your loss and wish you continued success 🙂
