Well even though I'm trying very hard to stay motivated I'm still stuck on a plateau. It seems when ever I get to this weight I stay here and can't get past it. I haven't been past this point in I don't remember how long.... Please any advice our there? I added lemon to my water today. I'm hoping any small change can help. I'm tracking my food and been eating more calories since everyone has been telling me I'm not eating enough. So I'm around 1200 to 1400 now and I'm trying to balance what I eat and keep enough protein coming in. I'm burning between 350 to 650 a work out, getting in my exercise at a min 6 times a week, going on 3 weeks now. Over all I know I'm doing the right things or at least headed in the right direction. I'm just not convinced I'm doing everything correctly or that there is something missing...
I know I'm just obsessing again and that my body is used to this weight so it wants to be at this weight... thing is my brain doesn't want to be at this weight. I gotta get rid of it. I'm going to keep pushing forward. I just hope and pray the scale moves down soon.... the first 10 always seems to come right off... then.................. nothing...... I get discouraged and eventually quit. NOT THIS TIME!! FAT I'm BLOWING YOU OUT OF THE WATER!! emoticon

Hey I'm back at it. I was away for a good long time, but I found my motivation again. I had a baby in Dec 2010 that was the beginning of my 2 year long rut. LOL She was worth it though. Well I'm back down to a little less then the pre pregnancy weight, but now I have to finish loosing my total weight gained over time...a very long time of self neglect. I am determined to finally loose this weight once and for all though. It is my mission. I have been actively working out and watching what I eat now for a good 3 weeks. So I have already hit a plateau and that's why I'm back to spark people. This web site really helped me last time and I have no doubt that it will help me once more. emoticon

Thanks for the blog comment and consider yourself slapped! LOL Look, this isn't easy or else everyone would be fit. Consider sharing your fitness/food trackers the first few weeks so you can get some feedback. There could be something you aren't seeing that others can point out or give suggestions on. Hang in there!
We've all been hopeless in the journey at one time or another but sticking with it is the only thing that'll warrant results. You're worth that!
