I think Im at a Plateau
So I know it may sound OC but I like to weigh myself every morning, after my first pee before breakfast and in my chonies. Ive been struggling between 220-223 for about 2-3 weeks now. When I Stay under my calories and work out I seem to gain about .5-1 pound. If I go over and dont exersize I am under .5-1 pound. I thought that it may be that I am gainning muscle and it is burrning fat better. Im confused, not upset and totally stoked at my progress but it makes me wonder. I am not loosing weight the way I want to, Id like to loose 1-2 pounds a week but 1 would be great. My goal is to be at 200 pounds and I know the slower it goes the more likely it will stay off. Im still thinking that either I have plauted or that I am just not working out enough. Lately my stress has been getting the better of me and I have been eating too much red meat and splurging on dougnuts, cookies and chocalte candies. I know I should, nor should I beat myself up over it. But it does add up, and if it were only the little mini chocolates you get in the bags and I could only have like 3 I would be ok. Cheese... My downfall, Ive cut back alot and switched to the 2% shredded stuff and only have it in my salads, wraps or mexican dishes, Cottage cheese on the other hand I have for lunch almost every day. I cant get away from it I love it, and the fat free crap is awefull, but I can tolerate the 2%. Anyways Today is a new and gorgoues day outside, Ima grab a snack and later we will take the dog for a walk.
