My August Weight-Loss Progress Pic!


Hitting a weight loss plateau. Solution? Eat more fat!

Plateaus during weight loss are part of the process. I know this. I should have expected this. I have had short plateaus over the last sixteen months but never one that lasted almost two weeks. I have been more curious than disappointed although I did say “What?!” a few times when I would get on the scale and discover that my weight was above the trend line yet again! Lol!

I thought I was doing everything the same as before except I wasn’t. With the added stress in my life I found that I was actually eating less, exercising less and sleeping less. And my body dialed down my metabolism a few notches and it was reflected in my weight loss trend line. I hit the forums I frequent and asked for advice. Someone suggested that my body was at a new set-point and to up my calorie intake for awhile and then lower it after about a week. So that’s what I am doing. My last three weigh-ins were actually below the trend line after upping my fat intake.


My August Weight Loss Pic – 173 lbs

So with that I present my August weight-loss progress picture.  Down only two pounds this month but it is a loss just the same!  I will keep adding more good fats and need to get back to my work-out routine.  You never know – it just may be what I need to do to lessen the stress in my life!  One thing for sure is that I never let this plateau lessen my motivation for losing these last 50 pounds.  Remaining positive has helped me keep my focus and from eating the wrong foods.  I just need to remember to listen to what my body is telling me and to take action when needed.  Never stop putting yourself first when it comes to taking care of yourself!

How do you handle plateaus?  I am open to all suggestions!  Thanks for commenting and if you have time visit my new Facebook Page!  I am also on Twitter so be sure to Follow me!

  2. Well as you know Mona I fell off the band wagon a while ago… Only lasted 3 months following your lead with not so fantastic results. I did lose weight none the same.
    So since my weight has climbed again at a quick rate I am going to start your regime again on Monday, January 19th, 2015!
    Wish me luck!
