Plateaus.

My weight just WILL not go down. It won't go down at all. I'm not sure how much longer I'm going to have to keep restricting before it goes down, but it won't. 500 - 800 cals per day is what I've been at for a week now and it is just sticking. Amazing how our bodies work. My mother sent me a message today telling me that she has been on weight watchers for a week... or two and has lost 1.6kgs. Mother fucker. I'm so jealous, I don't even know what to say. Fuck sakes. Tomorrow, I am going to fast. Only zero cal drinks, coffee, tea and water. Just for tomorrow. I don't really have all that much to add, except I hope that I have lost at least a pound by Friday. At least. I'm going out to that South African bar again on Saturday and I'd to look decently skinny before then.

So another milestone has been reached on this blog. 500 followers. 502 to be exact. I never thought when I started this blog that people would actually read it, let alone 500 people. I mean its crazy. I know that I am a social media whore... well. facebook and blogger most definitely, but I'm always so surprised that people want to read the dribble that is my life. Thank you as always for 14 months of unrivaled support and dedication to my bullshit. I'm currently looking around for some new blogs to read. So many of the blogs disappear or are abandoned, people go into recovery, etc etc and then we never hear from them ever again and the majority of blogs that I read are those that I found when I first started blogging and then as life has taken its toll over time, I have had less time to find these. Also, I find that certain kinds of blogs irritate me. And I've only come to notice what irritates me through reading loads of them. Anyway, to this end. A lovely young lady contacted me via email yesterday reaching out for a bit of support. She has recently started a blog after following ours for quite some time. I think its worth commending her strength in doing this eventually, I mean. It does take a bit of courage to put your life online. Especially considering the consequences generally of what happens if someone finds it. Anyway, here the link to Alices blog. Give it a look if you have a chance. :)

Anyway, GOOOO team. Please feel free to leave some blog links, I'd love to read. :)

Love & Hugs

Plateaus a one of the reasons we're all so crazy. I hope you see some movement soon!

Plateaus suck! My body doesn't want to budge either and it's making me crazy. I know it's harder for us when we really don't have much weight to lose or are already underweight but it's hard not to compare when for some the pounds seem to melt off. 500 is amazing! I have two blogs and neither one is even close.

I have been stuck in one for weeks now!! I only just broke it, possibly only seemingly. I thought I was going to lose my shit. In fact, I did a little, but it wasn't as bad I thought it was going to be. You know you just have to stick it out girl, it will bust eventually, you seem so strong, we all are. I have been doing water fasts, every time I hit one...at least a gallon a day, for as long as you can stand it. It does work, I swear...over 50 pounds down in 4 months. Thank you so much for the kind words, and the shout out, I know you don't even know me and that was wicked cool of you. Keep up the kindness doll. I hope I get the opportunity to pay it forward.

First I'd like to say that it'll happen - all your hard work will pay off eventually. I feel your frustration on trying&trying without seeing results, but eventually (almost suddenly) you'll see-feel-notice-love the difference, and those around you will see it, too! Just don't let yourself fall off that wagon in discouragement, cause it's those break-down-days when you give in to the battle that stick with you the easiest.
Secondly, your advertisement of another blog is a wonderful thing to do! Alices Blog is incredibly lucky to have your supports. It's so hard to speak[blog] knowing that no one is reading. And, congrats to you on all of your followers! Incredibly impressive and so reaffirming! You've got great things to say and you're an inspiring blogger - worthy of all those readers.
Keep it up! :D

Hope it doesn't annoy you, but no worries if it does. I understand, I hate getting excited when I find a new blog I think I like then realizing after an hour or so I hate it. Also, I always hate when my mom talks to me about weight. Always. :) -Anna
