For this week at least, the slow weight loss is broken! I'm down 1.4 lbs! And you know what? Though it was nice to see the scale finally budge, I left my weigh-in feeling more proud of my physical changes than anything else. Even still, who doesn't like to see the scale move in the downward direction? It took over a month of hard work but it was worth it despite the frustration.
For those people who've survived plateaus and slow weight loss, my hat is off to you. Though mine wasn't as bad as other people's, I know firsthand just how difficult it is to manage.
So what caused the scale to budge? It could've been my body finally adjusting to the extra exercise. Or it could've been a few of the changes I made this week. Small changes to be sure, so who knows if they impacted the scale or not? For anyone curious, this is what I did differently:
- Started taking Omega 3-6-9 supplements
- Reduced packaged treats (even more)
- Ate more raw almonds
- Met the 8 healthy guidelines consistently
- Took one night off of running
- Mostly didn't eat after 8:30p
Anyways, have a great day everyone! And thanks for your patience, support, and suggestions on surviving :)
