Stalled Weight Loss

Have you hit a stalled weight loss plateau? This is common when you are trying to lose weight.

When results slow down or even stop, it’s easy to lose motivation to work out and eat healthy food.  It happens so gradually we hardly notice it.  Before we know it, we’re off track and old habits are slowly getting the upper hand.

You know you are in a slump when you look back over the past few weeks and realize that you are not working out that often or your workouts are very low intensity, you are being a little more lax with what you eat, and worst of all, you feel discouraged.  The further behind you get, the harder it is to revamp and start again.

Break Free

If you are in a slump, this is a perfect time to break free. 

The hardest part of breaking out of a slump is taking action, but once you get moving again and take some positive steps, you will quickly find your feet and resume your forward momentum to fitness and health.

  • Schedule some exercise time into your day today. It does not have to be a long session; it can be 10 minutes.  Just move.  The biggest predictor of whether you work out tomorrow is whether you work out today.  The tough part is to begin.  Take a walk, make several trips up and down your stairs, jog in place – it doesn’t matter what it is, just do something.
  • Decide on your weekly eating plan. Working with a nutrition coach to get you back on track can help you quickly re-charge and re-boot your efforts.

Once you take the first step, the next will be easier, and the next even easier.
