Talking FINALLY Broke My Plateau!

For what seems like eternity, I have been stuck at the 210 mark. I was doing everything right- my calories were in check, I was eating much much healthier foods, and I was even exercising consistently. The weight just was not coming off though. I was bouncing anywhere from 207-214 for over a month. It has been so incredibly discouraging not seeing any improvement for all of the hard work I was putting in (not to mention all the chocolate I gave up!).

While normally I would have given up at this point, I stuck through it. And today, very unexpectedly, I was down to 204! My lowest weight in over a year. I am so stoked. It's the motivation I needed to reach my Halloween goal.



I just had to share with someone.

This is a "just in time" message for me. I've been on a plateau for months and it is so frustrating. I'll just keep on 'trucking. Congrats to you.

Good for you and congratulations on your perseverance!! My hubby was also at a plateau for over a month and finally broke through with a 4 lb weight loss today. He was also very happy and motivated. Congrats again!

Plateaus are a bummer. My big one was over 4 months right at the 300 lbs mark. I soooo wanted to get into the 200s, and my body was teasing me!

Good work!

CONGRATS!

I love hearing these successes because it gives me motivation that if the hard work and determination are there, the weight will eventually come off!
