Pictures are up

Wednesday, November 18, 2009

Incase you were wondering....LOL

I some before and current after pics (though still in progress). I am now in a size 14 (and they are getting roomy). I am almost 230 (hopefully by tomorrow morning...LOL) and I want to get down to 150.

I am getting started, counting calories, and eating better and it is paying off so far. Just going to keep pushing forward. But a question, what are the signs you are hitting a plateau, besides not loosing any more weight, and what did you do to push through it?

Any thoughts, tips, or frustrations you went through on your journey, will help me through mine! I am so excited to be apart of this group, and grow in it and myself!

    I'd have to agree with LDILL35. Changing up your exercise intensity and what your eating for a short time should be enough to "shock" your body out of the plateau. That's part of the reason why I started doing the calorie deficit thing.

    You have a beautiful family! I also noticed those sassy red shoes in the one pic! You go girl!

    Congrats on your success!

    I agree that when hitting a plateau increasing intensity and length of exercise will help OR changing the type of exercise you do.

    I also found that a more strict diet for a week or two will help break through a plateau. These are the things I am doing now. I don't typically believe in low-carb diets, I believe in balance. However some weeks ago I was put on a short-term low - no-carb plan (for other reasons that aren't weight related) and I found that it really made a difference. So this is what I'll do for a week while trying to get through a plateau although I'd never do it permanently.

    Hi, I think you will find that when you hit a plato you mught need to eat more protein and up the exercise. I am swimming in a heated Pool I find that really tones the muscles and you can do heaps of exercises in the water.. hope this helps Susie emoticon
