Week 7--The Dreaded Plateau

I KNEW it would happen, but that sure doesn't make hitting a plateau any less frustrating.  I've pretty much stayed the same weight..with in a pound..for about 2 weeks now. I'm hoping this ends soon. I read a story about a girl whose scale didn't move for 6 months, during a 120 lb weight loss. I'm pretty sure that would send me into a cheese cake induced coma I'm changing up my food and exercise a bit to see if that will move me back in the right direction. 

Other than that, things are great. My husband told me the other morning my snoring has improved. I am certain I apnea. I just haven't wanted to spend the money on a study for them to tell me I snore like a truck driver.  I KNEW it was my weight. I'm glad it seems I was right.  He says I am still snoring a little, but it's no longer at the level he fears for his hearing.  ;)  I am sleeping much better. Some nights, sleeping all night without even waking up once. That hasn't happened for a long time, and one of those things I didn't realize was affecting my life until it improved.

Most days I am so proud of what I have done to date. Today, though, finds me a bit frustrated with how far I NEED TO GO yet.  So, this quote spoke to me this morning.

Take pride in how far you have come and have faith in how far you can go.

Off to a track meet today!! I have a post of pictures I'd like to share of my teenagerS, since Tristen turned 13 yesterday. Maybe I'll get that done in the next day or two.  Have a wonderful day. The weather is FINALLY beautiful here!

Just remember you are doing so much better than all those still sitting on the couch "wanting" to change. You're actually doing it :)

On another note...we need to update your cover pic...those boys have changed a LOT and so have you!!!

Being 'stuck' is no fun, but what differences you've noted. Everyone has those awful food days. Just move on! Here's to more progress with the nicer weather!
