Find us on:

plateau |plaˈtō|

verb ( -teaus, -teaued, -teauing) [ intrans. ]
reach a state of little or no change after a time of activity or progress : Tanya Capelings' weight has plateaued.

I swear this is straight out of the Webster's Dictionary.  I was wondering what was wrong with me.  The scale hasn't changed, but I am still working out and playing more tennis than usual.  The number on the scale should motivate me , not make me want to hide from my trainers.  I feel like I've wasted three weeks of my precious time with my team. 

I believe the main reason for my plateau is nutrition.  I have done an okay job of staying in my calorie goal, but I think I need to lower that even further now that my body is use to this routine.  I need to manually start it once again.  This means less of the things I love and have not wanted to give up, like wine and diet coke with regular cherry syrup.  I have become complacent with myself.  I was losing weight without changing some of my eating habits and was satisfied with that.

Well I'm not satisfied any longer!  I have worked too hard to get this far to not go all out and take off several more pounds.  I will change how I am eating, I will cut those calories further and I will treat myself after I reach those goals, not before, not during, but AFTER!  It's time to get tough on myself.  I can do it, just watch the incredible shrinking woman at work!

I can't say thinak you enough to Skin RN, Maryland Farms YMCA or the BHP for giving me this opportunity!

I'll slap you in the face if you slap me? (figuratively speaking, of course)
