Default Persistence Finally Pays Off!

I don't know if I've been on an actual plateau because my weight hasn't been staying the same, but it has fluctuated from 189-186 for nearly 6 weeks! It was so frustrating but I kept plugging along (except for a bit of a slip last week) and faithfully coming to the boards and reading all of the other threads about plateaus, struggles, motivation, etc.

Well, it finally paid off, today I've hit a new low for me....185! I feel relieved, my determination is renewed and I feel very proud that I made it through without giving up. Thank you all so much for being here to help, even if I didn't directly start a thread to ask for it!

Good for you Wisher, it is sometimes tough to stick with your plan when you're not seeing results. Good job.

Good for you for not caving with 6 weeks of no movement!!! Persistence and patience are two of the hardest skills to master in the weight loss process.

Nice job sticking with it. I know how frustrating that can be when you're doing all the right things and it feels like you're not getting rewarded.
