It is very hard to have perseverance when you haven't lost a pound in almost a month and have been exercising almost every day and eating very well and counting every calorie. What more can I do? So this week I plan to do everything I can to help this pause in weight loss end! Drink hot tea and coffee more to flush out my system, make sure I am getting enough fiber, cut out high salt and sugar foods, and eat more protein. I hope this makes a difference. On a happier note, even with being bloated I managed to really start getting into my size 12 pants. Yes they are a bit tight but I am getting there and hope to be in them by my vacation. What do you do to get through pauses in weight loss?
