On a plateau already.

Monday, February 15, 2021

Early January I made a concentrated effort to lose weight. I started moving and reduced my calorie intake. It worked; I lost 7 pounds by the end of the month. Now I seem to be maintaining. Seven pounds is not the ultimate goal. I have a long ways to go yet but it seems I’ve hit a plateau already. My calorie intake has been less then my SP calorie range. I’m thinking I need to increase my calories, wisely, to see if that will break the plateau. Exercising inside because of snow and frigid temperatures isn’t hard but can be boring, so I try to mix up the type of exercise I do to keep it fresh and use different muscles. Being back on SP has helped especially with food tracking. The fitness tracker frustrates me a bit because it feels like I’m burning a lot of calories but that’s not what it reflects. (sigh)

Onward and upward.

    They say when you start a different dietary program you lose water weight first and then your body has to adjust before weight loss begins. I have a hard time exercising in the house while my wife is inside too. Going outside has been reluctant on my part due to injury and Covid-19, and have not relinquished the lazy effect of the virus.

    Hang in there, it is not unusual as your body is trying to make up for the less calories. It sounds counter productive but drink more water. That will release some of the water in your fat cells and show a loss at the scales.
