Busting through my first plateau

I was ready to plateau, at 150lb or maybe even 175lb but I was not ready at 204!!!! My last Blog entry was 1/15 and I weighed in at 208 and now on 2/2 I am 202. There is a light shining at the end of this tunnel I promise.... I pushed through. I had one weigh in with a 4lb loss and thought ok no problem I can make 5 lbs this week and then totally be under 200. Well when I stepped on the scale last Friday and saw 202 it devastated me. I cried. I felt so defeated! Now the old Meghan would set herself up for failure and when the scale said 202 would admit failure and throw in the towel. Fortunately that Meghan doesn't live here anymore!! I reached out to my supportive Beachbody coach and my trainer picked up the pieces and kept moving forward. Ron has instructed me to make saturdays a 1650 calorie day which at first I panicked over. I just couldn't wrap my head around eat more= weigh less, but my beachbody coach Allie ( who is the most motivating person I have ever met) explained that I need to shock my body to turn it into a more efficient calorie burning machine. So I had my high calorie day and I just kept doing me!!! It feels amazing to still be at this with guns blazing!

I also started Shakeology this week. Shakeology is a Beachbody meal/snack replacement shake that is nutritious and delicious. Reese read all the ingredients and it passed her test (it helps to have friends who are nutrition experts in our corner)!! I am doing the shake as breakfast every day and I am really enjoying it. I have also been noticing I feel alot better digestively since drinking them.

I have had lots of non-scale victories since last post so I will leave with my list
  1. Lots of compliments from people on my noticable shrinking size
  2. made it through TURBO round 39
  3. Jeans loose out of the dryer
  4. dresses in the closet are starting to be too big
  5. Winnie said my bathing suit looks big
  6. consistently doing 60 min of eliptical
  7. Did all of HUSTLE #8
I am really doing this and I truly believe that I can finish what I started and live my dream. I can almost see that rock I will be sitting on singing my song!!!

I love you all!! and I love myself!
