Losing Weight – The Plateau

Spring weather is here along with Daylight saving time adjustment. What this means is more pleasant weather and more daylight after I get off from work. I used to have about 1 to 1.5 hrs of daylight left after getting off work at 5 pm. That’s just enough time to get out and put in a workout, but I always had that rushed feeling. Now I have time to slow down and take my time to workout and extra time to cycle a bit further. Thank goodness for that cause I’m stuck at a Plateau in my weight loss.

Everyone trying to shed some weight has come across this phenomenon. Your body simply refuses to corporate and lose some weight. Ah, that arch nemesis as struck again! It’s in a stubborn phase and it can really bum a person out. It does me! I workout hard all week, putting in the miles on a consistent basis, watching what I eat and poof, nothing happens on weigh-in.

Discouraged, I go over what I’ve been doing and eating. Maybe I need to cut back on this or that or eat more of this or that … it’s all the same stuff that everyone seems to go through and there is no one bullet answer to solve this.

I think I’ll go back to a food diary, such as MyFitnessPal, and see where I’m going wrong with food consumption aspect of things. It really is a pretty good app. Maybe I can figure out how to get off this plateau.

Any suggestions? Drop me a line or post a comment, I’d like to hear from you and your struggles with the weight loss plateau.

Keep them wheels spinning!
