Default Rev up? Rev down???

Ok, so here's my dilema. I reached my goal a couple of months ago. My goal was a size 6 and not a weight. BUT I still want to lose about 15-20 lbs. I still have some extra poundage around my tummy/butt that has to go. But I have not lost any weight in a while. No cheating....well, VERY RARELY.

So, here's my dilema. I'm trying to decide if I should do a kind of modified phase 1 or do a "stuff myself with junk" for a couple of days to shock my body out of this plateau.

Opinions? I kind of lean towards the phase 1 thing...but I have no cravings for sweets etc. I usually bring an apple to work for a snack and today brought 1/2. I usually have a turkey/spinich sandwich on ezekial or flatout for breakfast and today I just had 2 eggs on top of some raw spinich.

actually what you need to do is increase your exercise.

the "stuff yourself with junk" sounds like more fun.

I exercise an hour every morning...either fluidity or callenetics. Then another 45 minutes to an hour doing yogilates in the late afternoon...almost 2 hours a day.

Cat, I'd be afraid of the stuffing yourself approach. I'd either make myself feel ill, or not be able to stop once I got started. I'd also be worried about cutting back too much.
I think changing things up can help though, so if you are a creature of habit like me, maybe varying your food choices. Or trying different types of exercise than you've been doing. I know you don't like jumping, but you don't have to jump in WATP. Just a thought.

Yeah, maybe so Schmoodle. I think I'd get desperately ill if I put a glob of mashed potatoes in my mouth. I DO have peanut butter almost every day...may cut that out for a while. My meals are pretty varied, but snacks are pretty much the same every day.

I went back on phase I for one week after having a lot of snacks one weekend (kind of stuffed myself) and it helped me lose the last few pounds I was working on. Even just 5# makes a difference when your close to goal. I would think changing your exercise routine would help too. Maybe your body would respond if you changed things up a bit and challenged yourself with something different: weights, cardio. I don't know much about yoga or callinetics but I think if you tried the elliptical, recumbent bike or something like that it would give your body a new kick.

Zeff's answer is awesome!! Stuffing is more fun. But, you should probably change things up a bit... get a variety with snacks. change nuts. maybe lower your serving of nuts.

Cat...do you do the "yogailtaes" on your own or do you go to a class here in town? I usually don't get back in town from work unti llate...between 530-6...and am curious to see if there's anything out there! I've been doing my elliptical everyday...well except for the weekend, and joined a gym in franklinton, where I work!

Congrats on reaching your goal size!! That's amazing!! How long did it take you? I'm sure you'll get the rest shaped up in no time!

Thanks for the advice everyone...I'm going to start changing up snacks and see if that helps.

Mandy, I bought a video of yogilates and do it at home. (actually 3 videos) I was really thinking about joining North Cypress gym this summer, but not sure...kind of expensive if I don't go,but the new place looks so cool! It took about a year to reach my size goal.
