Guys, I have been in a three month stall. Since November 24 I have been losing and gaining the same 2-3 pounds. It has been miserable. While I know plateaus are part of the process, mentally that fact does not make this any easier. I have been working out HARD. My eating has been on point since the new year. I did give myself some grace over he holidays but I didn’t indulge nearly as much as I could have. I only weigh in monthly, but I have been stepping on the scale more often hoping something would change and those pounds would be gone forever.
I don’t really have a goal weight. I figure when I am close to where I want to be I would figure it out then. With how I look and feel now, I figure I have a good 25+ pounds still to go. The weight I am currently sitting at is what I weight about 14 years ago. I was head first into Weight Watchers at that time and had lost a good chunk of weight then. About this time was when I met my husband and we were on the fast track of dating, marriage, fun, and kids. This is also when the weight slowing began to creep on. Subsequently, I was sitting higher then my heightest WW weight when instarted this journey last January.
So here’s the fact, Jack…I am scared. Scared that I will never get past their weight. Scared that I will not successfully lose all I need to lose. Scared of gaining.
It’s a bad spot to be in.
But I have resolved to keep doing what I am doing and working as hard as I can to get through this.
I will get through this.
