I am dreading to write today’s post. I thought it is better to do it now and to get it over with so here it is:
I weighed in this morning and after working my butt of this whole week I have lost nothing. Zip, zero, zilch. I am still hanging on at 301. I moved my scale all over the house in case it was not on a flat surface; I replaced the batteries and re-weighed myself a 100 times. I believe I have hit my true plateau. I thought I already had hit my plateau when I only lost 1 pound that one week but nope, this is it. I did nothing wrong and I didn’t cheat with food and have been staying in the 1,000-1,200 calorie range for each day. I also have been drinking my water and green tea and still nothing. I was so excited to be back in the 200’s but I guess it will have to wait. I am very upset and I feel like I have let myself down big time. I don’t deserve my cheat day today.
I made a joke to my Mom yesterday about if I wasn’t in the 200’s today that I would give up. Little did I know; I wasn’t going to be. I know I can’t give up but it is very hard to stay positive when something like this happens. I didn’t gain anything so this HAS to be a plateau!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Only time will tell; and I am willing to stick with it to find out.
My name is Marilyn and I am 27 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life and on May 1st, 2012 I weighed in at 338 pounds. This blog is about my weight-loss journey.
