Good morning everyone...I've been away for awhile due to the "funk" I've been in lately but I figure maybe this is the place to be instead of wallowing in my own self pity. So here I am.
This is what's got me so down: I began this journey on Mar 28, at 217 pounds and for the first month, the weight just melted off. I was in heaven, it was wonderful, so excited. I actually thought that would continue throughout
. Well, I plateaued for a couple of weeks, then when the scale started moving again, it was less than exciting. I came into the forums, desperately reading posts and taking ALL
the advice I coud find. (it's very difficult to be high protien and low protien on the same day
). So, I had to regroup, take a little time to go back to basics and start seeing where I really was and what I've really accomplished. When I did look at my "change stats" report, it says I lost an average of 1.4 pounds per week, That's very acceptable.
The point I'm trying to make is if
your honeymoon ends and your scale stops moving, don't get discouraged. Look at the big picture, celebrate your accomplishments, and accept support when you need it.
Stay healthy... Stay strong...Together we can do this.
