Weekly Weigh In – 14/01/13…The Dreaded Plateau

I don’t think I’m alone when I say this, I think I put too much pressure on myself and expect constant results which as I found out last night is not a good thing to do.

I felt that I had a really good week, no problems going off plan…anyway! I went and got weighed in and only lost half a pound and i just thought “Really!?!?!?! Is that it…I’m sure I sneeze more than that” I shouldn’t get to down about it as like everyone keeps telling me a loss is a loss and its much better than a gain, which is 110% true no doubt there but i just feel it should be more, more that a measly 1/2 lb.

The day has finally come

I don’t think it’s anything that I’ve done wrong this week to account for the minimal weight loss, no, I think its what I’ve been dreading for a while now and that’s hitting my weight loss plateau;this put simply is a brick wall that you have to smash through to get to the next level of weight loss.

I spouse I could look at this positively in the sense that my body is not getting to a point that its never been before and want to keep on to it’s beloved fat, well I’m not! This fat has got an expiration date on it and that is August 2013 so it better get used to it!

Mixing it up a little

I haven’t looked into conquering this plateau yet but what I am going to start is a daily food journal to keep track of what I’m eating, I’m going to keep it up for at least 4 weeks compare the weight loss results to each week and continue from there. I think this will be a pretty interesting project to follow and I cant wait to see the results, hopefully i can start to pin point what foods effect my body in particular.

How has your week been? Share your experiences!
