Today typically is my first day of an old onset. Today is usually the day
I give up. I get discouraged by the "numbers game". I convince my inner
self, that it's not worth all the effort if its not going to show up on my scale.
Today is the day plateau means quitter.
Think about it, what is the one thing that happens in the middle of dieting? At first the excitement is there, you can't wait to get on the scale to see the pounds have dropped. At first there is an immediate feeling of being a skinny person. You can almost taste the cardboard you will be eating as you achieve your goal. Everything is going along as planned and you are smiling at your accomplishments.
As if a ton of bricks just came crashing down on you, you start to analyze what happened. Saying it's not fair, you ate great, you worked out. It is just not worth the effort!
If you are like me in your thinking, its NOT YOUR FAULT! You have been doing your thing! You have been eating right and working out, and for what? Then a temptation shows its ugly face, something that always comforted you in the past when you were feeling frustrated. Or maybe you just don't feel like getting up and sweating if it isn't going to make a difference anyway!!
That was before, this is NOW! Now is
No longer will "plateau mean quitter" from now on it will be: "plateau means time to step up my game!"
