For the last 6 weeks I have been hovering at the same point. Losing a pound or two then gaining it back, fluctuating back and forth every few weeks. While I guess I should be glad for the maintaining and not gaining, I’m not to a point where I want to stop losing. So… I’ve decided to try a reboot (think unplug the computer and kick it a few times). I lost a lot in the very beginning using Nutrisystem and not eating anything off plan, so I’ve decided to go back on it for at least the next three weeks. I had a goal of getting to 170 before the Becoming Conference (3 weeks away) and while that isn’t a healthy goal anymore, I’d be glad to at least lose 5 lbs before then.
This weeks numbers:
Starting Weight (18 weeks ago): 202
Last Week: 178.2
Current Weight: 179.6
Goal Weight: 165
My original goal was to hit 165 before 9/1 and I could still possibly do that. 15 lbs in 6.5 weeks will be tight, but I’m not losing hope yet!
So for this week my little goals:
- Stick to Nutrisystem for all meals (thankfully we aren’t traveling any for a bit)
- Exercise 4-5 times each week.
- Drink lots of water!
I haven’t really talked a lot about water on my weekly posts. I’ll confess it’s because I’m not a huge water fan. I like bubbly drinks with taste. However, my body is a fun of water and I am realizing I do so much better when I am hydrated. So I’m adding it as a goal/plan so that I’ll stick to it. I even got a fun water bottle to tote with me everywhere to make it seem more fun.
Any other tips you have for breaking out of the rut I’m in?
