So the day after thanksgiving, I weighed 257 lbs – 265 lbs, depending on the scale. My goal was to loose 40 lbs by May first. I did that. Then, I set a new goal to get down to 200 lbs by the end of the summer. I don’t know for sure how class I am, but I do think my weight loss has plateaued. I know why, I eat well, but I eat a lot. I need to remain mindful that what got me to loose weight, after years of trying was dietary discipline. It’s frustrating because I love food and have found such great recipes on blogs like cooktraineatrace and feerlessfood.
Now how much more weight I want or need to loose can be a contentious issue. Some people are already telling me that I’m too thin at around 210-215 (I’m 6-3). I know that in order to be my most competitive as a triathlete, I’d probably need to weigh around 185 or so. I don’t know if that will ever happen or not. As far as living the healthiest, longest and most disease free life, I definitely still need to loose more weight. At what point do I say, “hey, I’m healthy and that’s good. I may not be perfect, but it will do ” or do I continue to strive for perfection constantly trying to be more and more healthy. (I might be exaggerating a bit here. I did have a choc chip cookie last night with a Klondike bar on top of it).
Gonna stop here, but a always I’d appreciate your thoughts and any ideas on how to bust through the plateau.
