It has been about a week since I started cleaning up my diet. I feel better but the scale hasn’t budged. I’m not going to lie. It is annoying. Obviously through my weight struggles throughout the years I have had many times when my diet has hit a standstill
Shock your Body: Your body can get very used to routine. If you are eating the same number of calories and exercising the same way each day your body will adjust and adapt. Add a couple hundred calories for a day or two. Hit up a spin class, or do an interval workout you don’t normally do. Anything to get your body guessing again!
Feed your Body: Sometimes when we diet we tend to take off too many calories. Sometimes that magic 1200 calories a day number is too small for many people, especially those who are active.) Your body will begin to think it is starving and will try to conserve everything making weight loss that much more difficult!
Treat you Body: Stress and tension can do terrible things to a body. It is important to relax and take everything one step at a time. Earlier in the year I found that I was really stressed about a few things and put on a couple of pounds rather quickly. As soon as I was able to work it out and relax about the situation the pounds came right off without any effort. A body can retain water in times like that and can cause water weight gain easily. To relax take a yoga class, meditate, take a warm bath, or give yourself a nice excuse to get yourself a massage.
I am going to take my own advice as well and hopefully I will see some movement in the near future.
Question: What do you do when the scale gets stuck?
