I've hit a slow spot in my weight loss this week. I was steadily losing 1/2 a pound every couple of days, but this week I've just been hovering. I've exercised every day and stayed in my calorie range every day except Wednesday when I baked and decorated a birthday cake for my friend's little girl.
After eating 600 calories in buttercream frosting, not to mention the cake and ice cream, I definitely had to use that as one of my free days. On Tuesday I hit 10 pounds in my weight loss, but the frosting binge cost me 1/2 pound and I've been sitting at 148.5 all week.
I'm mildly frustrated, but I keep reminding myself that losing 10 pounds in 5 weeks is a lot and I was bound to plateau sooner or later. I think my body is getting used to my new normal and I keep wondering if I need to change things up. I'm getting a decent amount of variety in my exercise now that the weather is improving, so maybe I need to do something different with my food. I've noticed that I go to a lot of the same stand-by's and the only meal where I get much variety is dinner. I need to start exploring new recipes, especially for snacks and more veggies. Any good websites you ladies can recommend?
'Course, there's always the possibility that if I just pig out for a couple of days and then start dieting again, it will jump start my system and get me losing weight again.
A girl can dream, can't she?
