Queen of the Plateau

I know I have written about this before but I feel like it is worth repeating. I've have finally given in to the pattern of my weight loss. I am Queen of the Plateau. I usually plateau for 2-3 weeks before I lose maybe for a couple weeks. It sucks.

It is unfair, sucky, and not at all cool. The truth is that, it is what it is. I know this was a reason that I have given up on myself before. I feel like I can accept the plateau knowing that eventually I will lose again. And that is what it is all about. As long as the number on the scale is getting smaller then its all good.

Thoughts and reactions like this, make me realize how much this time is different. I know that I am going all the way this time. I am not freaking out anymore when the scale goes up or if I go over my points. This is my life.

I have been at a plateau for the past month or so and am ready to start dropping again. I am just trying to focus on the fact that I am maintaining and will drop soon. Here's to a good week ahead!

I think plateaus are more like "set points". Your body is adjusting and trying to get to a stable place. I see a plateau as a way of your body saying I feel comfortable here and going back to the higher weight would be weird.
