Using the weight charts to track reality! I have tracked my ups and downs over 3 years. I noticed that my body wants to stay at specific weights. Those are the areas of plateau. Those are also the weight levels my body wants to get back to. I now know I have to expect my body to resist weight loss in those areas. I am determined to create new lower norms for my body by staying at a lower weight for extended periods. If you can maintain count it as a victory! you are resetting your weight norm.
By tracking your weight and viewing the charts you will notice the plateaus and realize they will be the areas your body fights change and tries to stabilize. Work through them, they won't last. You are changing and working toward new norms.
