Well, there will be no pictures this month.
Why? you ask.
Well, because not only did I not lose anything but I gained 3.2 lbs. I weighed-in this morning at 166.2.
My weight has been going crazy all month. I could have starved myself the past week to make weigh-in but I refuse to do that. I was really upset when I had made it three weeks through the month and had not only not lost anything but gained.
I talked with a few friends and family and they said, and I have to agree, that I've hit a plateau. That mixed with the fact that I've been lifting weights has to be what it is.
I haven't changed my eating habits, except that I eat breakfast everyday now (and it's always healthy). I haven't been slacking on my exercise at all either. In fact, I think I've stepped it up.
This is the first month that I've gained. I was really embarrassed to have to tell everyone but then I got over it. I've worked so hard and come so far, I have nothing to be embarrassed about. Hitting a plateau had to happen sometime, I guess. I just don't want you guys to think I'm slacking because I'm telling you, that is NOT that case.
I'm not sure what to do, except keep on keeping on and not get discouraged. If any of you have any tips or anything to help me get over this plateau, I'd love to hear them. A friend told me I need to start confusing my muscles because my body has gotten used to all of the cardio and weights that I always do. I'm not sure what to do because I do such a wide variety of cardio and weight stuff already. We'll see.
Please keep me in prayer this coming month for wisdom, guidance and patience to get over this plateau.
Thank you! :)
