That's a good question. I'm not sure what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some investigation and get back to you if I bump into an decent answer. You should email the people at Medifast as they probably could give you help..
Put your scale someplace the sun don't shine and go for a walk. Right now the scale is not your friend...it's not making you happy anymore, it's not helping you.
, and it's surely not good for your mental health. Like a toxic friend, sometimes you've just got to let it go at least for a while, so you can keep your own life on track. You're over a year out. It's just not going to come off as "easy" as it did a year ago. But you know the routine, up the.
, up the protein, and check your total carbs and calories. If you've gotten out of the habit then go back to logging. You did this to get healthy and it's working..
, that should get you started back on the downward trend. My doctor had this.
Himself and he told me that's what he does...
Awww cacti hun,,, I am so with you in the dumps at the moment but I have found a way of shifting weight..
If only temporary... bare with me......
Eat copiuos ammounts of breads and bung you up foods for 3 days.... (CARBS).
Go to bed on the third night with a box of chocolates......
Eat a few...just enough to give yourself a stomach ache.....
Drive to work, trying not to pop in the morning.... weigh yourself on the factory scales.....
GO to toilet..
Hey presto, I just lost 3lbs ......
Sorry hun to make lite of your plateau, but it will move again, depression and eating becomes more troublesome during this time making it eaven harder....
Bear with us.... Lets get my trip over with and we can look at doiing something to get the weight moving again....
More perminant than a 3lb pooh....ok....
Never give up... it's just not you.... Your not a quitter your a loser remember....
Buzz..... (big loose pooh boy)..
This is just a .02 cent suggestion here from a total newbie but what if you went back on your stage 1.
For a day or two? Just to switch things up so your body doesn't "get used" to what you are doing. Eventually you will get over this hump, I know how frustrating it is to be in one, though. Hang in there!..
Yeah....I know you ALL are right! I need to get off this self pity kick....just PMS'ing I think! ha ha That's why I have been wanting to eat like a carnivorous monster! ha ha ha ha LOL!.
Thanks you guys...I need a kick in the butt once in a while too and the scale is not my friend...in fact it's an IDIOT!~ HA HA.
Getting past this....PROMISE!.
Just keep working at it and don't give up. Giving up is how you invite all those pounds you lost to come back-and they usually bring some friends. Think about how far you've come, and put the scale away. This plateau will break, you just have to stick with it. Maybe switch up your.
You are more than a year out, so a big slowdown in the rate of loss is totally expected. It also slows as you get closer to your goal. Keep patting yourself on the back for your amazing success and keep taking great care of yourself..
I think the one year mark to the 18th month is the hardest part of this journey. Your first year flies by so fast and you lose so much so quickly that when things slow down you freak. I promise you it happens to all of us. I had a point where I lost no pounds for like 4 mos and it was extremely depressing at times but I'd keep measuring myself and here and there I was losing inches and that helped me keep trudging on. Another thing is really look at your carb intake. You should only consume half of your protein intake in carbs.
Change up your.
Is great but add some hand weights or some other type of aerobic.
To jumpstart yourself. You will get passed this I promise. There is light at the end of the tunnel and you will definitely make it to Onederland. I"m praying for you. You can do this..
