to reach a state of little or no change after a time of activity or progress.
My plateau has been by choice.
The first month on this nutritional journey I dropped 22 lbs.
The second month, zero lbs.
By choice? you may ask.
Yes, it is by choice. A successful choice at that.
The normal cycle I do each and every year for the past 15 years is to lose (and gain) that same exact 20 lbs (even through 3 pregnancies).
This month I mark as success, not because of any big numbers, but because I am not sabotaging myself to gain again. I need time to get comfortable in my own skin. What really slowed down the progress was the lack of juicing that I had been doing. I.know.that.
I needed time to figure out what clothes are fitting (for now),
for the attention from well meaning (and well loved) friends to subside,
for me to pray through some insecurities,
for my will to catch up to God’s purpose…
I am looking forward to embracing this 3rd month. Fresh fruits and veggies are bountiful right now. I love the long simple days of summer… a time to just be…
Let the juicing begin… again. *smile*
