Now I am not happy that anyone gets frustrated. I wish we could all lose 2-3 pounds a week with no roadblocks. But it doesn't work that way. To those who have shared about suddenly gaining or hitting a plateau, I want to thank you for sharing your story. It has given me comfort where I am right now to know that what my body is doing is "normal" and not just me.
Let me share:
I have been losing at a really nice pace for a few weeks. However, for the past 5 days I have lost nothing. I even gained .5 pounds. I thought oh no and was remembering all the times in the past that when I got to this point I gave up and thought it's not going to happen so why bother.
But not this time. Because of all the wonderful advice and testimonies on 3FC I knew it was only a temporary set back. Yes, this morning I am up .4 pounds since Saturday. But, for the month of April I am down almost 7 pounds! So maybe I have hit a plateau for a few weeks but unlike in the past I WILL work through it and start to lose again.
I just wanted to say thanks for those who have shared as it is giving me the will power to fight on!
