I had my 3-week weigh-in this morning. I lost 1.2 pounds total. It seems like my losses are just creeping along as I get closer to my goal weight. I’m also getting just plain tired of being on Phase 1.
I’m seriously thinking about phasing off and going into maintenance for a while. Some days I just can’t make myself stay on-protocol. And the closer I get to my goal weight, the harder it seems. Is this weight “good enough”? Yes, I can be satisfied with being a size 14 and wearing medium tops. But is this weight “healthy enough”? THAT is the real question and I don’t have a good answer for it right now. Maybe if I phase off, start the maintenance phase and begin exercising again I will get some of my oomph back. Then at a later date I could go back onto Phase 1 and take the rest of the weight off. I’m going to think hard about this and, if the next 3 weeks don’t go better, I will talk about it with my coach.
