Weight Loss: I Hit a Plateau (Angie)

Ugh the dreaded plateau… I knew it would come sooner or later, but I was hoping it would come later rather than sooner!  As of writing this I am officially down 58 pounds, 2 pant sizes and a shirt size and boy do I feel wonderful!  I have a lot more energy and the other day I went to try on clothes and everything I picked out looked great.  I can’t tell you the last time that happened, so that of course was a major win!

Back to the plateau – I’ve had a couple people tell me that because I have lost a significant amount of  weight that a plateau is expected to happen around this time.  I have to say that I think the medication I was on during our IUI treatment really slowed me down as well.  And to be honest, I have cheated here and there.  I really couldn’t pass up the Mickey shaped pumpkin spice beignet at Disneyland and while I am telling you my dirty little secrets I couldn’t pass up the pumpkin spice latte at Starbucks either.  What can I say, I am a sucker for pumpkin spice everything, don’t judge me. 😜

Anyway, I can’t say that it isn’t frustrating but I am trying to stay motivated which for the most part I have.  There are days were I want to just throw in the towel, but I have come too far and to be honest, I have become accustomed to the Keto lifestyle.  I have decided to try and switch up my meals a bit and incorporate some exercise which for now is walking about two miles per day.  I am really hoping that this combination will kick start my weight loss again.

So that’s the scoop, stay tuned for more weight loss updates!
