I'm celebrating today. After a mini-plateau that annoyed me to no end, I have finally reached my next mini-goal of 30 pounds of weight loss since beginning this program! I stalled at 25 pounds, but I took to heart something Dr. Kushner said about plateaus in one of the live chats. He said that plateaus are a great time not only to re-evaluate your meals and exercise choices, but also to celebrate the successes you've had so far. It was such a positive spin on the whole plateau thing that I couldn't help but use the time more productively than I would have thought possible a few months ago. Now, with an exercise program that is more inclusive of resistance training and includes interval training in its cardio sessions, I feel much better than I have in a long while. And the plateau is over, for now! On to the next mini-goal, full speed ahead! :D
