Day 3 of Reining It In. ("It" being Little Jenny).
This morning I was back to 201.5 - a weight that I've considered a "plateau" since the end of April.
Never again will I pooh-pooh a plateau. My weight never stops moving. I gain easily, I lose pretty easily. (Except if I lost weight really easily, I wouldn't be fat.) When I am at a plateau, it's just a resting point for my body to get used to it's new weight. But I'm going to go either up. Or down.
I think I get bored/depressed/irritated when my weight has plateaued and that makes me less motivated to continue to make good choices. And when a period of being less motivated comes at a time of high stress - Little Jenny comes out and whines "I'm BOREDDDDDDDDDD! This is toooooooo HARDDDDDDD! Let's just shake this all up!" And I get off my plateau - in a way that I don't want to.
So today, I am grateful for 201.5.
It's not 199.
It's sure not 175.
But it's not 246.
And it's not even 207 like it was this weekend.
201.5 is good for today.
