Sticking to it

I am sticking to it in more ways than one...Sticking to my 169-170ish weight...Sticking to my schedule...

Keeping my schedule with intermittent fasting but realizing that it isn't helping me get past this terrible plateau. I haven't moved at all for weeks and weeks...I know I eat too much in my eating window. I am trying HARD to make that stop. I have been better, but not good enough yet.

I need to eat smaller portion sizes. I have small successes when I manage to just eat what I brought to work, which is probably still too much, but no trips to the coffee shop for snacks and no trips to the vending machine...I call that a success. I also call it a success when I don't eat even though I am full, which doesn't happen often enough.

What I want to get to is a place where I only eat a little, enough, feel comfortable and satisfied - then STOP. Today, so far I am not too bad, I had a salad, some pasta with chicken and a granola bar. I still have some fruit with me that I would usually eat whether I was hungry or not because my window was about to close but I don't want to do that today.

I am going to make a commitment to having smaller portions, control my snacking and have nothing when I am NOT HUNGRY!

I know that I won't get off this plateau unless I make another change in the amount of food that I eat. I need to do this if I want to get rid of that last 30 pounds. I also want to start doing yoga regularly. My work pays a wellness fund for any activity that we want to do, so I think I will get a pass at a yoga studio and try to go two times per week.

Hopefully I can do it and these changes will finally get the scale moving again!!! UUUUGGGG!


  1. I'm with ya sister! You can do this!! I also need to watch my portion sizes and make do my best to avoid eating when I'm not hungry. I've been at the same weight for some time now and I'm not willing to settle until I lose more.

  2. I'm having the same problem and it's veeery difficult for me to stop eating when I'm full... But I'm sure that this can be changed and that we are on the right path :)

    Be strong!

  3. Good luck, with reducing the portion sizes. Sometimes to tackle my need to eat more, I have been have smaller eating windows. Everyday is a different challenge. I have also been experimenting with cal counting during the window but find that the quality of my food changes, as I am eating easy to calculate food which often means packaged food. So may not continue with this.

  4. You can do it Jenna!I am still stuggling with the urge to eat outside my window even though the urge is getting less and less as each day goes by.

    I just want to say Thank you! Your blog has helped me alot!
