Are You On A Weight Loss Plateau? IT’S TIME REFLECT AND CORRECT?
After losing weight for several months consecutively, you may plateau on the scale for a few weeks. But don’t let this plateau your mind set. It is only one of the numbers in the weight loss equation. Body fat percentage, total inches and weight should be considered when judging results.
If the scale has stopped moving down this does not mean that you have stopped losing fat. You can lose inches and not have the scale move. So the first thing is to measure your inches or check your body fat percentage each time you weigh.
The body is making an adjustment and the scale will catch up to the other reductions you are seeing.
If the other measurements are stalled than it is time to reflect and correct:
Tip #8 FOR WEIGHT LOSS: TIME TO REFLECT AND CORRECT
Are you drinking 8 glasses of water each day?
Are you eating regularly, has anything changed?
Consider eating only low GI foods
Are you logging your foods?
REVIEW your exercise program:
-working out harder/not fueling body enough
– or body is used to the work out and needs a shift, push a little more
The main thing is to adjust your mindset; use the numbers as information only not a reflection on you as a person and your ability to be a success.
