New, new plan
Speaking of the plan (increased calories/top of the hour activity), it only warranted me a one pound loss and it was losing a pound that was a rouge gain so I'm not overjoyed or touting the whole "a pound is a pound" crap. So after 2 weeks of the calorie increase, we're going the opposite direction. We'll cut about 200-300 calories. For me that's basically cutting out a morning snack and a little more. I can't give away one more week with a possible gain. So we tried that approach since our workouts were so much more intense and cutting calories hadn't worked for us in the past. But we'll try this approach and hope something comes out of it. I hate having to constantly re-tweak this program but most of the past 2 years has been spent trying to find what works for as long as it'll work, which has seriously been like 2 weeks and then nothing for 4. It is so irritating that you don't have control over your own body especially when you're doing everything right or implementing everything you have studied or know to try and your body rebels against you for no reason. It's beyond frustrating. Most people would've given up by now or proclaimed their weight had settled there but I'm NOT going to settle for just over 300 lbs. I WILL have a 2 as my start number on my weight and eventually a 1 so get used to it body. I'm NOT quitting no matter how much you resist me. This week has a lot of hard exercise ahead...so bring it on!
When you hit a plateau that lasts for months, how do you usually handle it?
