When the scale won’t freakin budge!

I know I’m not the only one on a health/weight loss journey so I know I definitely can’t be the only one struggling during it as well. As I’ve mentioned, I started going back to the gym a couple months ago and incorporating workouts into my routine but one thing I’m nothing is that the scale won’t freakin BUDGE! Now let’s be real, some days my diet isn’t the epitome of health nut but I have tried making a lot of improvements and have definitely lowered my caloric intake so when I’ve stepped on the scale I have felt pretty confident; to which I’m greeted with the exact same number as the week before and instant disappointment. As I shared in a previous post, I don’t think it’s healthy to weigh yourself every day so I have gone to weekly weigh-ins, and have decided to take my own advice by shaking off the disappointment and to just keep moving forward. I know if I keep doing what I’m doing and stick to these changes I will continue to feel better and healthier and eventually it will all catch up and lead to weight loss on the scale. One thing I’ve been paying attention to is the fact that this month has been, for a lack of better words, stressful as hell and I really haven’t been able to get adequate sleep or rest. For the next few weeks I’m really going to try to work on allowing myself to deal with the stress better because as we all know that can be a huge hinderance on weight loss. Another step I’ll be trying is to switch up my workouts and not just do the same ones all the time to try and kick this plateau and get things moving again. One last thing I’ll be doing is making my breakfasts a priority again. Having so much going on has led to me not putting an emphasis on that and therefore by the end of the day being so hungry and probably eating too much for lunch and dinner. This is the point in weight loss where I usually get ridiculously discouraged and just give up, but that wouldn’t benefit me in any shape or form so let’s keep going and I’ll do another check-in next month. Do you guys have any advice for getting out of a weight loss rut? Until next time, xo chrissy
