A Plateau? or Not?

Tuesday, November 24, 2009

Could it be? Maybe/maybe not.

I have been under a great deal of pressure/stress these past few weeks, having to travel long distances to provide support for an ailing relative. So my eating has been sporadic, and I have not been able to track. BUT, I have exercised excellent portion control.

Exercising has not been daily due to travel, but when I'm back at home, I've consistently kept up my workout routine. All in all I'd say I'm pleased with my progress under very difficult circumstances.

I weighed myself yesterday and was pleased to have lost 1-1/2 pounds during this time period. I've lost inches as well. While I had hoped to have lost a few more pounds, I think I've managed well all things under consideration. I also think that perhaps this has been a plateau month for me. Either way, I'm happy with myself for how in control I've been when it otherwise would have been very easy to fall off the wagon.

I'm looking forward the holidays and exercising appropriate restraint.

    I'd say you are doing fantastic, like you said especially under the circumstances. Do you get the feeling this just might be what normal eating is...I think so. Food is becoming secondary something we need for nourishment. You have come a long way baby...isn't that the saying...and you have. I know the gratifying feeling when you put clothes on that no longer fit like they used to and are loose.
    Congratulations on 1 1/2 lbs.
    I know you will enjoy Thanksgiving and will be able to handle to food.
