“Breaking through the weight-loss plateau—finally!” Weight-Loss Diary

Woman's feet on scale

Now this is a sight that makes me incredibly happy! The needle on the scale finally moved!

Here I am again, revisiting my ALL-TIME LOW of 201. Just 2 pounds away from ONEderland! Last time I made it to this point something went terribly wrong and the scale went in the worst direction and got stuck there. But I am here again, because I have NOT given up and I have NOT given in. I am still fighting because I aim to WIN.

Just 2 more pounds to ONEderland. 2. More. Pounds. Then I NEVER want to see a 2 as the first number in my weight again. I am going to get to buy my new outfit from Athleta when I get to 199 and it will get there.

I love being active as a family!

My plateau-hitting downer led to some research and some insights. As a family we try to be pretty active. But time to step it up a notch.

Saturday, we paddled the Chautauqua Lake outlet for 3 hours. Sunday, we biked the Allegany River Trail for about 1½ hours. All of us as a family.

It would seem that a few things have helped break through my plateau: Persistence, continuing to learn more about nutrition, high intensity shorter duration workouts, and more activity!

Almost to ONEderland!
