It seems as though there has been a sudden change in my weigh loss saga. All of a sudden, I am actually losing weight. I bust through the mini-plateau that I was enduring and now... I am back in the game.

I started thinking about what I have been doing differently since breaking the plateau. To be honest, I have cooled it on the exercise. I was going to the gym consistently nearly everyday or doing something else strenuous or very active if I didn't go.  Now, I am sticking with the Couch to 5K program,strength training, and some cardio sprinkled about as well as walking most places I go in town.

As for food, I'm not perfect. But a big part of breaking the plateau was trying to be. I got strict with my diet for at least 5/7 days with the other 2 days getting a couple treats at work- but nothing crazy! I also started consciously drinking more water throughout the day.

I think another part of why I wasn't losing weight was a combination of diet and exercise. I may have been exercising too much and eating too little and my body freaked out and started holding onto the fat.

Who knows! But I am super happy with the way things are going. At this rate, I will be under 200 lbs before April rolls around. This is so exciting! I don't remember the last time I was under 200. Aaaaannnndd..... I have been 203 lbs before, but this is usually the point where the scale starts to go back up for me. This time it isn't going back up!

This is the last time I will be 203 lbs. I will never be this weight again because a healthy person doesn't weigh 203 lbs. I am a healthy person and I will never be this weight again!

Have a great weekend everyone!
