I think it is official, I have a hit a plateau. Three weeks and no weight loss. I have had challenges over the course of the past 3 weeks but still I thought this week was the week I would lose again. So I guess it is time to shake it up.
Up to this point I have been following a pretty basic plan, calories in calories out. After trying out every diet under the sun, including the straight liquid hollywood diet you can buy at CVS or Walgreens, I have come realize that it is not about dieting but a lifestyle change. I am trying to just eat smaller portions and keep within the calories that Loseit! says I need to in order to drop weight.
I am also working out, because in order to be able to do the hikes I want I need to be in some type of shape to even finish. I am working out Monday thru Thursday mornings on our Elliptical for 50 minutes. When we get home from work we do weights and then take a 2-4.5 mile walk after a light dinner. Saturday are our hiking days and on Sunday we play tennis and take a short walk.
Next week will mean something new will have to change. Wish me luck!
