What To Do When You Hit A Plateau?
Even though I'm a bigger fan of looking at the numbers on the measuring tape than the one on the scale, I'm getting pretty frustrated with both. It's been 7 months on the BP diet and I've only lost 10lbs and 7.75" all over (waist, hips, thighs, calves, biceps, chest). I pretty much completely stalled out about 2 months ago. I was seeing 1-2lbs loss a month and at least an inch lost. To give you an idea of my physique, I'm a 5'5" female and topped out at 188lbs. So I'm not morbidly obese or anything, but overweight enough that I knew going in that it might take longer for me to lose. From things I've read and from doctors, the recommended healthy weight for me would be 135-140lbs. So I've got quite a ways to go...
I'm currently going to the gym 2-3 days a week (weight lifting 2, cardio like Zumba or rowing for 1). I upped it 1 day over the last month, as I was only going for 2. I would say that I eat BP 90% of the time, but don't feel anything in that 10% would be something to sabotage my weight loss (a handful of gummy bears, a cookie, or something similar here and there).
So the question is, who here has had a problem with plateauing and what did you do about it? Did it work? Did you figure out what was sabotaging you?
I just find myself getting angrier and angrier with myself... it's so frustrating not seeing any results while still putting in all the work, ya know? I'm kind of at a loss right now and just don't know what to do :sad: Thanks in advance for the help!
