Nope, it is not a repeat. It is the same weight I was last week. Which is rather annoying. It’s a plateau and I have an appointment with my doctor scheduled for next week to hopefully help me adjust what I’m doing. Maybe it will shake things up.
Hopefully it will shake them up in the right direction.
I have made a decision though.
while I step on the scale each week as a method of accountability, I need a break from it. The scale, not the accountability. I know I’ve done this before and I think it is time to do it again. I will be taking April away from the scale. I’ll still post about my continuing weight loss journey each Friday, but I won’t be getting on the scale each week to record the numbers.
I simply need a break.
Part of that is the plateau moment. It just gets frustrating to know I put in the effort and seem to be getting nowhere. So next week I sit down with the doctor and I’ll spend April getting things sorted out and then pick up with the weight posting at the beginning of May. I think it will greatly help my state of mind. Because that scale is just stressing me out at this point.
Starting Weight: 246 lbs
Last week’s Weight: 211.6 lbs
This week’s Weight: 211.6 lbs
Lost this far: 34.4 lbs
So this coming week I will talk to my doctor and possibly a physical trainer. I’ll keep an eye on my calories and exercise, reporting back each week on how things are going and get everything squared away in April. Then in May there will be a return to the scale and hopefully a better frame of mind. But for today, there was no loss in weight, but the loss of a scale and a whole lot of peace of mind gained.
