I've Hit a Plateau.
Aug 11, 2009As of yesterday, I'm 9 months out. I've lost 120 lbs, plus 8 from the week before for a total of 128 lbs. I was a whopping 333 lbs, which was my highest weight ever.
I have been on a plateau for the past 3 weeks or so and it's wearing on my nerves. Today I took out my old "bible", the book they gave me post-op. I read it cover to cover looking for ideas on how to break this plateau.
It seems I've gotten lax in recent weeks. Not weighing and measuring my food, or logging it in. I may even be guilty of drinking to soon after eating. These are all little things that mean so much, and that will soon be changing. I want this tool to work to it's fullest.
I can see this plateau is causing some stinkin thinkin which is an old habit that led to bad behavior. I must break through those bad habits. I know plateaus happen, but I don't want me to be the cause. I really think I'm doing this one to myself.
As of right now... (forget tomorrow or the good old Monday), I'm writing my food down and weighing and measuring for accuracy. No more guessing. I'm going back to the basics.
Rules are rules and I'm not letting this gift go, so I'll follow the rules.
