strange ah ha moment

Friday, February 28, 2014

I've been on the journey since September. And since September I have been steadily losing weight. I was doing Richard Simmons videos every morning. The pounds were melting off 3 and 4 lbs per week.

Mid January I decided that I needed to progress beyond Richard, he was getting too easy. So I bought a couple Jillian Michael's videos. And my weight loss has stalled. I hit the dreaded plateau. I've only lost 4 lbs since Mid January. I have seen body changes but not weight changes.

I never put the 2 together until this morning. I knew I stalled, and I knew I changed videos but it never occurred to me that they might be related.

I think starting Monday I am going to do a week of Richard then a week of Jillian. That way I keep the weight loss going and get the toning too. I know I need both.

I also joined a gym a few weeks ago and am going 3 days a week. 1 day upper body, 1 day lower body, and 1 day both. Plus 30 minutes of treadmill.

I'm hoping with the new plan that the pounds start disappearing again. Of course I'm not complaining because I have lost 65 lbs so far. And I will take that any day, but I have at least another 50 to go, and I'm starting to get frustrated. Need to prevent the frustration from sabotaging me. So I try a new plan. If this doesn't work, then I'll try something else until I find something that does work.

    Mixing it is good, but do not fret that you have not lost weight. It sounds like you are loosing fat and gaining muscle. That is natural and a good thing.

    Also double check your settings for fitness to make sure you are not eating below range for the amount of exercise you are now doing.

    I have done Richard's. I haven't done it on a regular basis but I do like dancing. I think I will try dancing again. I know it is beneficial. You keep up the great work!!
