I got into a discussion with my boyfriend tonight and he was talking about how he heard some guys at the gym talking about plateaus and that the secret of getting past plateaus is to continuously change things up. This is true, I can verify. The body seeks equilibrium. And I realized, I am in… Continue reading I Like Weight Maintenance
First I want to write a little about something that has been on my mind lately. It’s about advice regarding weight, weight loss, diet, etc. I have noticed that people seem to think there is some kind of one-size-fits-all approach that is best and we should all follow this approach.
