And now for my 10 week progress report…
Weight: -22lbs | BMI: 31.6 (-3.4) | Waist: 41 (-3)
Needless to say, I missed my goal to repeat my previous 18 lb weight loss.
But I did lose 4 lbs over the last 5 weeks, lowered my BMI by 0.6, with no change to my waist measurement.
So, that’s the good news. And it really is good news, because I actually accomplished the above results over the last 2 weeks. The 3 weeks prior, however, are a different story.
The Dreaded Plateau
It happens to the best of us. Everything’s going great, you’re doing (just about) everything right, and suddenly…the number on the scale stops moving. Even as I jumped up and down on the dang thing…that little red line stayed put.
[I use an analog scale. Only way I roll.]
There are many things that can contribute to a plateau, and that is the most annoying part of it all. It’s rare that there is just ONE reason why your body settles at a particular weight, and it’s rare that just ONE solution will get you going again.
