Another week, and not another pound. Good morning to all! I regret to say, I have plateaued! It’s still okay. I have not gone back up the scale so I am still mildly happy. It is a good thing other things are getting done in my life, so I don’t get too down on myself.
So here’s the thing…the first four weeks were very successful with losing 10 lbs. The next four weeks are pretty much slow going or none. I started at 150 lbs and now I sit at 137 lbs. How do I fix this? Well, that is easy! Look back at the first four weeks and see what I did differently. I don’t even have to look, I already know.
First and foremost, I am not drinking water, hardly at all now. Spring is coming, I should be getting thirsty soon! Next, most of the first four weeks, I stuck to eating eggs and green beans or turkey and green beans twice a day, adding a bit of carbs with supper and was drinking 2 – 3 bottles of water a day, which amounts to 4 – 6 eight ounce glasses of water. The next four weeks, I became confident in my weight-loss because I had lost 10 lbs and so I slacked off. Well, no more! That’s it! I’m going to get crackin!” and by that I mean eggs. Back to the protein and fibre twice a day. If I don’t lose a pound next week, I am not posting about it. There, that should motivate me.
All in all I am doing okay, it is just taking longer than I expected. Already this morning, I have had two cups of tea (lots of milk in it) and no water. There’s my first mistake. Okay, no more tea until I down 1 bottle of water. That shouldn’t be so difficult! I can do it! Blogging about it, is helping me to at least stick to going without junk food. I am over doing the fruit, although I know it is healthy, it still has natural sugar which turns to fat when eaten. I need to increase the veggies.
It definitely sounds better to say I have lost 13 lbs in 8 weeks, than to say, I lost zero pounds in one week. It’s all in how you look at it, as to whether you are going to kick yourself when you are already down. No, I am not going to do that. I am good. I am ready to start fresh. I’m going to get a bottle of water right now. How about you? Are you on a healthy eating lifestyle kick, don’t care, or always?
Thank you for checking in.
