Going crazy

Okay, I know that there are many threads about this already, but I really need some help here... it seems like every 8 or so pounds I hit a plateau, the last one was 163, I finally got past that and now can't seem to get past 155. I'm feeling extremely discouraged and I guess I'm just feeling sorry for myself, which I obviously need to get over! Does anyone have any suggestions, not just about ways to lose the weight but ways to get over this failing attitude that I'm currently feeling where I feel like I'll never reach my goal?

Is it REALLY a plateau?

The first question you should ask yourself is ... Is this REALLY a plateau?

-Are you taking your measrurements? If the measurements are still decreasing it is NOT a plateau.

-Are you monitoring your body fat%? If the body fat% is decreasing it is NOT a plateau.

The scale is not always the most accurate way to tell if you are losing weight or not. You can make huge changes in your body composition and yet the scale may not budge!!!! If you don't have access to a measuring tape I highly suggest you go out and buy one. Until you have monitored other things like inches don't let yourself get discouraged. Just keep on trucking and make sure you journal every morsel of food that hits your lips! Ask some of your group members if there's anything they can see in your journal that might be sabbotaging your efforts if you find you REALLY ARE on a plateau.

Good luck! Stick with it! You can do this!

And if you discover that it really IS a plateau--don't panic! Plateaus are perfectly normal. Your body has to sort of regain its balance every so often. It's just making sure you're not starving to death. Keep doing what you've been doing--eating well, working out. Change-up your workout a little to give yourself a sense of freshness, and be patient. Once your body adjusts to the weight loss, the biological starvation protection will relax and you'll start losing again.

The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
