Default Broke through my plateau

So I hit a plateau the last 3 weeks. Watched my diet carefully, exercised, nothing worked. I kep going between 208.8 to 210 to 211 back down to 208, then 207 (ONCE) then back up to 210 AHHHHH It was driving me MENTAL!

I finally said enough! Joined a gym last week, got a personal trainer to get me through that wall and well.........

Yesterday and today I weighed in at 206.8!!! FINALLY!!!!!!! Really feeling a difference now that I've changed my exercise to strength training (Man those planks are killers!) I really wanted to be down to Onederland by now but at least the scale is moving again!!!

Congratulations!!

I hit a 6 week plateau earlier this year, yuck! It's so frustrating.

I think that's awesome how you stuck to it and actually got a trainer. Those planks ARE evil!

That's awesome!! Great job! It's so hard to stay motivated and on track when you hit a plateau--but it sounds like you rocked it! Way to go
