For the first time since October, I feel disappointed with my weight loss. I have stayed the same for two weeks now, and it’s my own fault. Instead of doing what I was supposed to according to Weight Watchers, I reverted to my old ways. I didn’t exercise at all save what I did at work, which is not enough. I ate more than I should have because I didn’t measure and track what I ate. I didn’t eat veggies. OK, you get the picture now? It’s not pretty. BUT, it can be fixed starting today.
Now while I know what I did to cause the plateau, I went looking for more info anyway to see if there are things I can do now or in the future. What I found was comforting. This is extremely common during weight-loss. And the reasons are primarily lack of exercise and too many calories. Nothing earth-shattering about that. But it’s easy to reverse by tracking what I eat, tracking my activity, planning my meals, and staying away from convenience foods.
