Is it a plateau?

For those who are faithful readers, I am sorry I haven’t posted in awhile. I haven’t really had a topic to write about and I haven’t been in the best of moods lately.

Two words. The economy. One problem. I get depressed and that makes me want to eat….and not such healthy foods either. But so far, so good. I haven’t had any big bingeing episodes like I normally do. I have been doing a lot more reading. In fact, one day I started and finished a book. I read the whole thing. And I managed to sneak in some exercise that day….well, that is if you count going up and down the stairs about a 100 times because I was doing laundry.

So other than that, things have been going fairly well….well, that is except I still haven’t lost my first 10 percent…..

For the last month, I thought for sure the scale would move at my Weight Watchers meetings to show that I finally lost the 19 I needed for my 10 percent. The scale didn’t move for three weeks. But last Wednesday, which is the day I attend my meetings, the scale finally went down….but not enough. I needed to lose 1.8 pounds and I had lost 1.2….I was .6 pounds away. I couldn’t believe it! .6 pounds!!!!! So close. I joked to our meeting leader that I should just take off my pants and that would probably do it. She said I could. I didn’t. But, boy did I want to.

So this week, I am going to do it. The numbers on the scale are going down. To most people, that .6 probably wouldn’t mean that much, but to me, it was huge. I wanted it, but obviously not enough to work hard enough at getting it. I am doing better at exercising, but still have plenty of room for improvement. It helps that my son is starting track and actually wants to work out…..with me. We have even talked my husband into taking a few walks with us. He goes, but not always so willingly. In the end, we all have fun.

So for now, I am focusing on getting in some more exercise time and hopefully, it will pay off. I will let you know this Wednesday after I weigh in! I promise to keep you all posted.

  1. I’m here supporting you in spirit. You are doing better than I am. I haven’t been doing anything at all as far as exercise. I need too; I know I do, I just don’t make the time for it like I should. I guess that’s one of the things on my things to do list. Keep up the good effort.


  2. I’ll be praying for all of you. It isn’t just sis who needs it. God will feed her soul on this journey. But the ones who support her, you need to get yourselves covered in prayer too. May God bless you all with courage and strength, both physical and emotional.
