I haven't blogged since I got back from vacation mostly because I was in a rotten plateau, something I've been dreading since say one of starting Weight Watchers. Everyone warned me about it, but I stayed a step ahead of it at every turn. So when I went to Disneyland, I thought all the walking would help me out in keeping the dreaded plateau at bay. However, my body thought differently and it happened. In fact, I only lost 1 pound over a 3 week period of time. I was devestated each time I stood on that scale and only lost .2 or .4. UGH! So frusterating! I was not going over my points at all. So, a couple of weeks ago I got really sick and thought for sure I would gain weight, but I didn't. I drank a ton of water, ate really fresh food and I ended up losing 11 pounds. Thank goodness!!! I finally went back to the gym after 19 days of being on vacation or sick and it felt amazing! I really feel my body craves the gym. I went 3 days in a row and then weighed in last Thursday for another 5.4 pounds! I even had a stay-cation with my hubby and we had room service and cocktails and still came out with a "W" for the week. I know it wasn't much of a plateau, but for me and the dedication I have to this journey, it was rough for me. But now I know I don't have to be afraid of it because it will happen again and I will get though it.
One thing the dreaded plateau can not take away from me is how great I feel. I have so much more confidence in myself. I feel so comfortable in my own skin. I even bought a new bathing suit and didn't have to wear a cover up or stay wrapped in a towel by the pool. Thats a first for me in years and years. I couldn't be more happy and I'm looking forward to getting even more fit! What a great summer this will be :)
