Definitely in a plateau

Monday, February 03, 2020

It's official. Since Xmas 2019 my body has bounced around in the 290s. Down about 90 lbs from my highest weight, I am happy, healthy, moving better, and so proud of my progress.

I have discovered a love for intermittent fasting, living my life predominantly in a 16/8 routine. I enjoy meal prepping frozen lunches to take to work. My body moves faster and farther, being able to run up to 35 minutes at a time as I continue to train for my first 5k run in 2020.

And the benefits have also affected my husband who we estimate has lost around 50 lbs and our dogs who have also lost a couple lbs each.

One of the really great things is that I can now find nice clothing at second hand and thrift shops for work and working out. Which will hopefully save me a few dollars to change out too large clothing or other piece I am tired of wearing.

So I am happy, I am proud and I am committed. But now we push to get out of this plateau!

    Plateaus are hard, aren't they. Just keep doing what you did to lose 90 pounds. Sometimes our bodies need to stop and take a breather from the changes that are being implemented. The last thing you want is to put your body in "starvation mode." Be careful with the fasting. Sometimes, you have to actually eat to lose. Good can do this.

    Thrift stores are super for buying clothes! You can find some nice clothes if you take the time to look!

    They say when you are in a plateau that you really need to change your diet or your exercise routine or both. I know you can do it.
