Good Afternoon! I hope you are having a great day :) So in my previous posts, I have talked about counting my calories and many of you have suggested different sites to me. I have finally decided on Spark People. It's a little like the Facebook of weight loss. I have really enjoyed recording my progress on their website. It's really centered around rewarding positive achievements and creating a social support for your weight loss journey. So far it's been kind of fun :)
One of the things I like most, is that you can add friends to your profile/page. You can find people with similar goals and become "weight loss buddies." I have encouraged my parents to join so we can help each other.
So far, I have been tracking my food, workouts, and re-posting some of my blogs there. It's encouraging to see my weight ticker moving towards my goal and my fitness minutes increase with each workout. I have a bit of a nerd streak that loves to analyze numbers and graphs :) Here is a link for my page if you want to check it out my.sparkpeople.com/ACROOKSTON
After all this talk of encouragement, I have to admit that for the past week or so I have been very DIScouraged. I will confess I have been committing a cardinal sin in weight loss. I have been weighing myself everyday and it has been reading the same weight now for about two weeks or so. UGH.
I wouldn't be as discouraged if I felt that I was seeing a difference in the way my clothes fit or the way my body looks. Maybe the discouragement is clouding my vision and perception. Maybe not.
Any suggestions on how to keep my motivation? Any suggestions on how to break this plateau??
