2.6

I have just 2.6 pounds to go until I reach my original goal. Most days it seems as though I can work so hard and eat just right, but the scale just simply will not move. Talk about frustrating!

I'm at the point that I realize something absolutely has to change if I want to see any more progress. I've gotten into the habit of eating healthy and I'm going to Zumba twice a week, but that's just not going to be enough for me at this point. Yes, it has worked for a while and I have made quite a bit of progress. But I'm honestly just stuck and I'm sick of being stuck.

I feel as though I'm about to go fifty kinds of crazy if I don't make that scale move soon. 

My husband has looked at me like I'm losing my mind this week. I can see that goal just right in front of my face and for the life of me I cannot seem to get there. I've got the sweetest friends checking in on me...expecting me to shout from the rooftops that I've reached my goal. And then there's just nothing. I actually threatened to binge on doughnuts (which I despise anyways) this morning. This is just getting ridiculous.

Once I set my mind to do something, I'll do whatever it takes to reach the goal. So here I am putting everything I've got into losing less than three tiny pounds. And I just can't seem to do it. My dad's idea of starvation to lose those last couple of pounds just isn't going to work for me either....So things are going to have to change now.

I'm going to step out on a scary limb now....I'm going to adjust my calorie intake. There's a very good chance that I'm not eating enough at this point. That is absolutely terrifying. I've spent a year and a half getting my emotional overeating under control. Now that I feel like I'm in a really good place with it, I have to eat more. The only thing running through my head at this point is the potential to gain weight instead.

I'm also going to start doing more Zumba at home. I have the game for Wii and I can shake my booty in the privacy of my own home thankyouverymuch.

If you've never tried Zumba, it's a blast! I'm the most uncoordinated, ungraceful person with absolutely no rhythm! I promise if I can get out there and attempt it, anyone can! Want to try it out at home? 

Check out these free Zumba videos....HERE!

Anyone else just plain stuck this week?

    1. Tiffany, it's definitely worth trying! I love it, but I'm not terribly great at it. I end up laughing quite a bit.

  3. Okay, I feel ridiculous commenting here! But, I am now starting this journey (since Jan.). I started at almost 200lbs and am working my way down. This last 2 months I have been more focused so hopefully,I will see this come off. I found your blog about 2 wks ago and it has been the INSPIRATION I have needed!!! Everything you have posted, the pictures and words from your soul have been so IN MY FACE needed. I just sit here saying thats me, that's me. Thank you for being so blunt and so real. I know this goal is possible now knowing the path you have traveled down-it is similar to mine:) You have done such an awesome job. I will pray for your 2lbs. IT WILL HAPPEN.
    YOu have such a wonderful husband too that loves you unconditionally! Mine is the same. He has jumped on my goal and we are now working out together. Tell you husband he is such a real man:)
    God bless you and good providence!
    Sincerely,
    Teresa in Ohio

    1. Can I tell you that you honestly made my day? People like you are the only reason I've been brave enough to bare it all here. Thank you so much. You have been so encouraging to me. It really means so much to me!

  4. You know a couple of week's ago when I thought I broke my plateau with a cheeseburger. I went right back to stuck. I am so tired of being stuck, too. I am going to have to try different exercise, I guess. I know your 2.6 will come off soon. They say the last are the hardest.

  5. Read the book Refuse to Regain by Barbara Berleley, MD. It out lines 12 tough rules to keep the body that you've earned ( that's the subtitle). I've been maintaining 70+ pounds for 16 months now. Read that book and apply what works. You look great! Congrats.
