Maintaining the status quo
Saturday, October 09, 2010
I keep blogging about being on a plateau. I've tried almost everything to achieve a breakthrough but the plateau lingers on. So I guess I'm coming to terms with the fact that I'm maintaining between a 56 and 66 pound weight loss, for now, at least. Surprise: I'm not uncomfortable with this level of weight loss; it took me about 9 years to get here. It's not too shabby, but it's not enough. I've still got another 100 pounds, or so, to go. Maybe it's a period of adjustment, and the weight loss will pick up again. I tend to think that it will. I am still learning so much about myself on a daily basis. Who knew anyone as "open" as I always thought I was could be so complicated? I'm still detecting patterns of my food addiction that I need to pay attention to and work on. If I had lost all my weight as quickly as I ALWAYS HAD in the past, I would have learned about as much about maintainance as I ALWAYS HAD in the past. Hello? I'm still losing the same 100 pounds 50 years later; BUT, I'm still in the game! I don't have another 50 years to perfect the art of weight loss, so I think this is my final go-round. I'm in it to win it, even if it takes the rest of my life!
