I’m going on 3 months of changing over to a more healthy lifestyle. The shock has worn off and I love living this way. I feel better every single day. However, I haven’t lost weight in at least two weeks. I keep fluctuating up and down about the same 6 lbs. This is with a whole foods mostly PALEO diet and regular vigorous exercise and light weight training. The weight started coming off quickly in the first two months, now I seem to be at a dead stand still. I’m ready to pull my hair out!!!
Now the question is, how do I jump-start my weight loss again? Thank God I kept a food journal on my “My Net Diary” app on my phone because now I can go back in and see what I was doing to lose the first large amount of weight and do that exact thing again. Sometimes I will eat the same meals for two or three weeks, then I’ll find some new recipe or two or three of them and then my diet shifts again. Something I am eating now, or maybe not eating is keeping me from losing. I just know it!
So today, I will do my exercise, and I will fully evaluate my food behaviors to get this party started again. I do have to give myself some props here. Number 1 for tracking my food, I feel relieved to know I can go back in and see what worked for me. Number 2 that I didn’t just give up at this point and go back to my old ways! Finally Number 3 because my mind is really changed! I will never go back to an unhealthy lifestyle and I am so happy to say that, once and for all!
