Default Plateau......getting discouraged

Good morning,

I am getting ready to go to my weekly WW meeting and, as usual, I am nervous about the weigh-in. But I am going and I will KEEP going....but I am definitely on a plateau, weight-wise. I have been around the same weight for weeks now. SO discouraging. I have heard all the suggestions and read a lot about plateaus, but it is just getting very mentally tough. It is hard for me to believe that I will make it to my goal. I feel strange saying that, because I have lost quite a bit of weight and kept it off.....no small feat. But every week when the scale stays the same, or goes up or down just a little, I feel like crying. Just needed to vent a little bit. I WILL keep going. I have felt like I may have started losing again this week, but all of a sudden my ring feels tight and I feel like I may have gained. My feelings are definitely not always accurate, though, so who knows. That is why I go weigh in every week at my meeting. Thanks for the support and inspiration. If I can do it, believe me, you can, too.

I know it must be tough to hit a plateau after all the hard work, but do believe me, I've just about started my weight loss journey and it's people like you that keep me motivated.

There was a really interesting (and apt) quote I saw the other day, saying that people tend to look at how far they still have to go, instead of how far they have gotten. I'm sure you'll get through this fast, but until then just look at how much weight you've lost! It really is an inspiration for people like me who are starting out.

Back from my weigh in. Up a tiny bit --- .4 pounds. Less than half a pound. I WILL keep going. I am happy to help inspire anyone. You CAN do it, too. I know you can. Never give up. That is what I tell myself.

I'm a WW too. Took me 2 months to lose the last 3 pounds!

Hang in there! It's worth it!

I made up my mind that I did not care how long it took, that slow is better, because I would be more inclined to keep it off. So far, 2 year anniversary in September of maintaining!

Thanks, Janelle. That was really encouraging. I WILL keep going. I just hate feeling discouraged, but it is all part of the journey, I suppose. And congratulations on maintaining! It helps a lot to see people maintaining their hard-won losses.
