  • Finally!



    Broke through a plateau I've been trapped in for months. Wife and I both lost weight. I'm now two pounds under this plateau. Yeah, it's just a psychological victory, but it seems that adding nuts and vegetables back into the mix has done the trick. Nice to be going in the right direction again.

    Personally, I think psychological victories are VERY important.


    Kudos!

    I grok, therefore I am.

      Congrats dixonge! I totally agree with the psychological victories. I've actually put on 5 lbs since I became primal but my clothes fit better now than they did when I was the same weight pre-primal. But I still want the scales to move in the opposite direction. It's frustrating to see my weight only go up (no, it's not muscle, I hardly work out).

        Excellent! I've stepped away from the scales for the moment and am just going by how my clothes feel. A big boost was having to get rid of most of my wardrobe (charity shop was very happy!) and buy new, smaller clothes. I have a friend I see every couple of weeks and he is also very good at dishing out the 'wow you look fantastic' compliments as well.


        But I completely understand the elation at breaking the barrier, that's for sure!


        Psychology is very, very important in how we perceive ourselves - this is something I have learned a great deal about in the last almost 8 weeks!

          Good for you! My body has always gone in stops & starts so I know how those plateau's feel. Breaking thro' is awesome, both phychologially & physically!

              So far here are the other adjustments I've made:


              - less caffeinated soft drinks (down to just 2 per day)

              - less coffee (not a big drop)

              - added nuts and berries to the diet

              - no more sabritas (Mexican peanuts)

              - added some veggies back to diet

              - started taking the stairs more often (lots of opportunities at work)


              That's about it. Will resume kettlebell soon.

                Woohoo!!! I too have broken a small plateau by adding some coconut oil bark into my daily routine. (Super yummy, and keeping things um... regular. lol)
