Wednesday's Plateau

Plateau.... I hate this word. It means I'm stuck, not moving, standing still. I weighed this morning and still no change. I have to figure out something to change to get moving again. I need to wake my body up and let it know that I'm not done yet we still have a lot of work to do. I will be researching ways to do this today.

Dinner last night was delicious just like I knew it would be and OMG my Oreo truffles are amazing! The fact that they are only 25 calories per truffle made them taste even better. :)

 School is going well so far, though it is only the third day so we'll see how I feel 16 weeks from now. I am more than ready to start my classroom observations.

If anybody has ideas on how to jump start my weight loss again please let me know. I have a long way to go but I am more determined than ever to get there. I am going to try drinking Sassy Water and see if that helps.

Well again sorry but this is going to be a short post, I have much to do today. Have a great Wednesday and thanks for reading!

Lots of Love,

  1. Sara-

    You asked for ideas so here are my suggestions...

    Eat small, little (100-200 calorie) meals throughout the day to keep your metabolism going. Make sure they are high in protein, low in carbs, and low in sugar. I usually eat 5 of those small meals and 1 large meal that consists of a protein and a veggie. No starches.

    I have completely given up bread. I haven't had a piece of bread to speak of since May 1.

    I have cut down my sugar intake A LOT. Even if it is low in calories, but high in sugar, I don't eat it.

    I drink 1/2 my body weight in water, BEFORE I leave my house each morning. It took me about 2 months to be able to do that...but it helps me to know that I've had "enough" water. I still drink water throughout the day, but I don't feel the pressure to drink it anymore.

    That is how I have lost my weight and I started May 2nd. I've lost 45 lbs to date. I haven't hit a plateau, yet. Each week I lose at least a lb and usually 2-5 lbs depending on the day. Just thought I would share that with you as I know it worked for me! I enjoy reading your blog...your dedication and desire is motivating! Keep it up!
