I’m guessing that about right here is where most folks would give up. Throw in the towel. It’s too hard, frustrating. It’s not happening fast enough. You’re eating right and have a solid workout regimen. It’s been two weeks now. What gives? Ha. All jokes aside.
I’ve been plateaued for several months now. Well, I did lose three pounds a few weeks ago, but that’s a small drop in the bucket. This is a hard spot. It’s pivotal. Two choices: Fold or persevere. If you fold you can guarantee you will never get there. You can’t get there without being here. Being here and staying here for a while is a choice. And, then there’s being here, right here, and finding strategies to get through these challenging plateau periods.
My response to my body’s latest plateau: I’ve sought a team of personal trainers (Northwest Personal Training) to assist me with my workout routines and I am refocusing my attention to my eating habits. Plateaus are our bodies way of saying uh…I need you to do something different. I have your workout and eating habits figured out.
News flash: Fitness and weight loss don’t just happen. They require work. Lots of hard work. Consistency. Determination. Tenacity.
Think about the ripped guy at the gym. He didn’t get those pecks overnight. Did he have challenges? You bet he did. But, he stayed with it. Yours truly, didn’t lose 170 pounds overnight. I’ve had to work through all sorts of obstacles. But, I’ve never given up. I just find a different way.
Folks, take it from yours truly, there are no magic pills when it comes to fitness and weight loss. Hard work, patience, and a never give up attitude is what it takes. I’m guessing, right here is where you are highly motivated to make the commitment to your fitness and weight loss goals.
