Hi - i have hit a standstill

Postby bjam » Fri Oct 15, 2010 8:50 pm

I am really enjoying reading all the advice and success stories in progress on this forum and am looking forward to meeting you all as I continue to post!
Just quickly, over the past 3 years I have lost 28kg in chunks with lifestyle changes etc - I will lose some, stay the same for a bit, put back 1-2kg, lose more again... overall I am really happy with this relatively steady decline. My issue is that lately I have hit a bit of a standstill where I am finding it really easy to stay at a fairly constant weight (sort of hovering at this weight for a month or more after losing 6kg mid year and before that hovering at the same for a good 6months), but to lose it seems much harder! So that is why I am here - I thought perhaps this would be a good place to come for diet advice and for a little extra motivation to stay on track and not just go into another one of my lazy periods.
As of this morning I weigh 76kg (BMI is 29.3), 3 years ago I dreamed of being 65kg... short term I would be so excited to get to 70 or below! Long term im not sure why I shouldnt now aim for 60?? I feel as though it is not such an impossible dream these days, and that makes me so happy!

Hi bjam You have usually had good results in losing weight so you're obviously doing something - well, lots of things - right. Perservere and the losses will come. Good luck
