A Recipe for Breaking A Stall

Sigh- so I had my 12 month follow up today.  Seems the only one being hard on me and my stall is myself.  They reminded me that I’ve lost over 100 pounds in a year, and that my body may just be happy where it is.

I’m not.

But I realized that just by going today and not cancelling my appointment (because of no weightloss) means I’ve won an important battle in this war.  I went.  And I asked for help.

First of all – I need to start really diarying again – both my food and my feelings.  And they hooked me up.  They made me realize that I’ve gotten too comfortable and in a routine – which is not good.  So, that’s step one.

Step two is to teach myself how to deal with stress and cravings.  They have given me an exercise to do to deal with the cravings – a tapping technique.  I’ll give it a try – what the heck do I have to lose?  And they recommended a book to deal with the snacking that’s come back in – 50 Ways to Soothe Yourself Without Food – I ordered a copy tonight.

Third – I need to remember how far I’ve come.

Fourth – I need to kick up my exercise intensity and level.  And make sure that on top of that, I get in 10,000 steps a day.

I have come a long way, and my team is thrilled.  I’m going to go see them again in 3 months to see if the tips and techniques they’ve given me work.

Keep your fingers crossed.  I just know I’m not done yet.
