You read that right. I've been gaining and losing the same 1.5 lbs for about a month and a half.
It sucks because I can't seem to get over this 35 lbs hump.
It sucks because I feel like I'm working my ass off and getting no results.
It sucks because I'm tired of having to account for every morsel of food that enters my mouth.
It sucks because I'm totally obsessing over this stupid 1.5 lbs.
It sucks the most because I'm seriously considering *GASP* giving up.
Cue dramatic fainting.
Break out the smelling salts because I'm not giving up. I'm making a new goal. I want to reach the 50 lb mark by New Years; a lofts goal considering 1)Plateau and 2)Holiday Season.
But WHATEVER. I need to get motivated, I need a new goal and 15 lbs in 12.5 weeks is it. It's totally attainable and in a safe and healthy weight loss of an average 1.2 lbs a week.
Here's the plan:
*TRACK, TRACK, TRACK! In Weight Watchers speak, this means to write down every thing I eat and account for it. I've been slipping.
*MEASURE all my portion sizes. For real. This means measuring cups leveled off with a knife. No more heaping portions.
*SWITCH it UP. We've fallen into a food rut and are eating out too often. I'm going to make beef stew this week and pasts with meatballs; two old, healthy favorites that have fallen off the map.
*Make BETTER CHOICES. Opt for the fresh apple instead of the Peppermint Patty, the fudgesicle instead of the brownie, the salad instead of the chips.
*MOVE MORE. I don't know how I'm going to do this, but I'm going to try and walk at least a mile three times a week. So, a midday walk w/the boys, perhaps?
I know how to do this. I've lost over 35 lbs already. The only thing getting in my way is myself. So, stand aside, self because I'm back on track.
