I made is past this plateau....finally!

Finally, after WEEKS of being stuck in the 250's I have made it into the 240's!!!!  Today's weigh in was 248.6 - Whoooooooooo hoooooooo!  For me, getting to a new number is a big success.  And I think that this success was even sweeter because I had been in the 250's literally since January.  I have been up and down by a pound or two but the numbers just didn't keep moving down like I wanted them too.

I do have to say that I am REALLY proud of myself for sticking with it though.  This is the time where in the past it has been easy for me to get discouraged by lack of progress and say "Screw it!  Why am I sacrificing what I am eating and not getting any results from it???" and start slipping back into my bad habits.  But this time, I just kept going.  I think because I have been eating foods that I like and not feeling deprived in the food area it made it so much easier to keep going.

I know everyone says it and it is totally cliche, but it really is about making a lifestyle change.  There will be plateaus, there will be frustration, there will be challenges, but having the perseverance to keep going even through the difficult times is what will make you a success story.

Seriously, if I can do this, anyone can!


  1. You are awesome girlie!!!! I'm too stuck in the plateau mode....seriously the scale as moved up and down since before my surgery Dec 29th. I've only seen it go 2 pounds lower than what I weighed Dec 29th. But we gotta stick with it!!! You are doing great an SERIOUSLY do not look anywhere close to 248!!!! Keep up all the hard work!! Having friends going through the same thing helps to keep one motivated!!! Love ya LOTS!!!!!

  2. Plateaus SUCK!!!!! I have seriously been yo-yoing back and forth between a 1-2 pound loss or gain every day since Jan 19th. Honestly, it's probably been a blessing that I have been too busy to really think about not making any progress. And especially too busy to notice that it's been that long with no progress! But I am convinced that means GREAT things are coming!!! We can do this girl!!!! Love ya back LOTS!!!!
