While I did lose more weight last week at my weigh in on Thursday, I must say, I don't feel I've been doing good the past few days. I haven't been a terrible eater, and I've been sticking to my points, but I don't feel like I'm losing anymore. I think I've hit my plateau.
This Saturday I went with my mom to go clothes shopping because some of my pants are starting to fit pretty loose. Now, technically, it's loose in my legs. It still fits pretty well around my waist. My stupid weight loss is coming off everywhere but my stupid belly!! It's very frustrating because that's the one and only part of my body that practically got me to start Weight Watchers. So unfortunately, for me, shopping was very depressing. I found myself coming to tears many times in the dressing room because the pants were all still fitting me the same as they did 2 months ago. So even though I've hit the 15 lb mark, I still felt a little upset at myself for not going down a pants size or two.
I understand that it' s about being healthy and not about dropping sizes, but it's hard for me to stay so positive when I'm still wearing the same stinkin' pants.
In 6 weeks, I am already 15 lbs down. And that's progress. I recognize that it works and I am going to continue to folow the program. And granted, that's all without me working out. I occasionally do Pilates and I've done my workout DVD once...but that's pretty much it. I know I need to work out to continue my progress, and trim down my stupid belly that I hate so much - but working out is hard for me. Eating better = simple. Working out = hard.
So maybe it's a physical plateau, but it could be a mental one too. Just got to keep pushing!!
Whew...that felt good. Sorry for venting!
