The Dreaded Plateau
Saturday, November 11, 2017
Well, I have to face it, my weight loss has ground to a halt. Even worse, I gained this week. It’s frustrating to be sure. However, I know the outside forces that are halting my progress so I am trying to remain positive.
Some of them, I cannot change. Others, I can and will adjust. Since the scale is showing me no love, I have been working hard to find positive things (NSV’s) to focus on until my body adjusts to these new circumstances and my weight loss resumes; and I know it will resume because I am not giving up and eventually the scale will reward my persistence.
I am halfway through this journey and there is no way I will quit. Whether it takes another year or 5 years, I will lose this additional weight and reach goal. I will also keep in mind “persistence not perfection” is what will get me there.
Putting the scale away until next week. In the meantime, I will keep my focus on how far I have come and not worry about how far I still have to go.
Keep moving forward.
