I knew it was coming!

Yes it's happened, over the last 10 days I've lost 2.8 lbs!  It's here, the stall that my doctor warned me about at my 4 week check up!  I figure it's good that I've lost any weight and not gained but's a bit disheartening that at my starting weight of 316 lbs a stall couldn't have waited a few weeks!  But overall I've lost 36.6 lbs and that isn't bad, it's great!  I can muddle through this to the losing part!  I am going to celebrate my current weight, which I haven't seen in about 2 years so there you go!  I've also learned not to have weekly weight goals because it'll happen when it happens.  Maybe monthly goals are a better there it is.

Hi Kathy - Stalls are tough, I agree! I've been losing mostly in fits and starts with stalls in between, so I get it. A couple of things that are helping me deal with them are:

  • keeping a spreadsheet (or on an app) showing a line graph of my losses - the stalls look pretty puny when seen in the context of all the losses. Just little blips in the constant downward slope.
  • not having any time-determined weight loss goals. I am only in control of my behavior. My body is in control of how it responds to my behavioral changes. It will lose at the pace it loses at, regardless of the goals I set for it. I don't like to set myself up for disappointment, so I have only behavior goals, no weight loss goals.

Anyway, these two strategies have been helping me feel a bit better about stalls. It sounds like your losses are back on track, though - congrats on all of your success so far. Doesn't it feel great? :D

Congrats, Kathy! And I agree with Jen about the goals, for what it's worth. Couldn't have put it better myself. :)
