Oh, it seems that my weight loss journey will never end. I was off and running beginning in March and lost a total of 21 pounds. I gained back one pound of that and now I am at a standstill aka, a plateau. What’s a girl to do?
I will admit that I haven’t been eating as well as I should. I have been eating out more than a person trying to lose weight should. It has been sandwiches and salads and such, but there is nothing like eating food that is freshly prepared at home. I know the key to weight loss and keeping it off is consistency, and I’ve dropped the ball where that is concerned. I am happy with losing the twenty pounds BUT it is short of my forty pound goal. I want to kick it into high gear by preparing more of my meals the low fat way. I also have signed up for a pole dancing fitness class ( do not giggle) and I am hoping to shed some pounds doing that. I wanted something fun that I would enjoy while working out and the pole dancing class seems to fit that bill. Of course I will be blogging about it and bringing you my results.
One thing that I can say is that I haven’t had a soda since February 21st. So it’s been almost four months since I have had a soda. YAY for me. The bad thing, though, is that I have begun to drink sweet tea (1 32 oz a day) that is not good for losing weight.
So I know what my marching orders are: eating more low fat meals that I prepare at home, work out at least three times a week, and limit the sweet tea intake. I think by sticking to those goals, I will get myself out of the weight loss rut I’m in.
Any other tips or ideas on how to get out of a weight loss plateau? Your feedback and comments would be greatly appreciated.
