2 weeks - barely a move on the scale. Frustrating. Will this be the plateau? I'm so annoyed. You see, my body hasn't seen this weight since 1992. I'm not sure what I have to do with it. I can't really lower my calories by much because I've been eating pretty low calories - under 1500 most days. I exercise almost every day. I've exercised more this last quarter than the previous but have lost less. I knew it would slow down eventually....but I wasn't ready yet. Maybe I should have started slower and then decreased my calories little by little, but I didn't do that. I went pedal to the metal and no looking back. I've been reading some that I could increase my calories for a few weeks (gain back a few pounds) and then try again? This just seems so counterproductive! There is still a chance that I could be under 200 lbs by the end of the year, but if I've been losing like I've lost this month, it won't happen. My very initial goal I made at the beginning of the year was to be 212 by 2012. This will surely happen, even if it's a snail's pace to get there. I only need to lost 6 more lbs or so to get there. It will happen. Well, I'm off to Body Pump! Have a Happy Thursday!


  1. Plateau weeks are hard and it takes determination to get through and push past it but you can do it. They do pass and when they do, the weight comes off again and you feel even better. Keep doing all the right things. Don't let the scales put you off. It will pass and you will be cheering again - and those WILL get there I know you will

  2. It's not only about the numbers... look at all the other parts of this journey, all the parts where you are doing fine.

  3. oohh..frustrating. I wish I could offer you advice, but when I plateau it's because I'm eating too much. I don't know what to do when you hit that and you're staying on track.

    Good luck getting through it...just keep going. You're doing great!

  4. YES to what Diandra said.
    hang on
    hang in
    the plateau breaking is coming!!!
