What should you do if you begin to plateau with your weight? 


            Humans are creatures of habit.  It is easy for me to get into a routine of eating the same meals and workouts.  While I was still trying to attain my goal weight there were many weeks when I stayed the same.  I was frustrated because I was working out 6 days a week and sticking to my low-fat diet like glue.  My consultant and I were stumped.  I rarely ever "cheated" and drank alcohol (it's recommended that it be refrained from as much as possible while your goal weight is trying to be achieved) or cooked/ordered a fatty meal.  I was determined and wanted to succeed.  Some suggestions based on my experiences were:


                       vary my workout routine more (walking, biking, hiking, swimming, DVD cardio workouts, just to name a few)

                       workout less!  (every other day)

                       increase my calorie level by a few hundred for a week or two (i.e. more protein or another yogurt/milk)

                       examine everything that goes into the mouth (food diary for a week)

                       drink TONS! of water

                       take a multivitamin


            Some people ask me how much my world has changed since I lost all the weight.  Find out tomorrow how YOUR life may change...
