    Wow, I didn't realize you'd made it all the way to goal before. My head is in the game as far as the eating part, but I can't lose weight any more without also exercising a lot, and I mean a lot. I guess my metabolism must be slowed way down.

    I know what you mean about trying to find your way back to that place. I keep looking back to the summer of 2015, when I dropped 10 pounds. But it wasn't just a matter of being in the right place mentally. Partly it was because I'd just found out I'd had a stroke in my eye and was literally scared straight; also, I'd just left my husband and moved to this neighborhood in Columbus that was great for walks, and as part of keeping my sanity I was taking long walks twice a day all over the place, as well as finding a great class that met five mornings a week at the rec center. So it was kind of a perfect storm of motivation and exercise opportunities.

    Actually the book on the treadmill sounds like a really good idea. I just can't seem to get going with the at-home indoor exercise. It's my weakest area.

    I agree that as long as we're eating on track it's not necessary to weigh in if it's only going to mess with our morale. If I start getting nervous that maybe I'm fooling myself, then I'll weigh to check, but other than that I don't really want to know right now.

    I'm thinking maybe I'll just resign myself to maintaining for the rest of the winter, and once we get back to walking and hiking weather I'll do a big push to drop 10 pounds.

    Tony rarely sleeps with me. I think it is because I tend to move around a lot. But, when I was sick and sleeping such long hours, I would discover Tony in bed with me. No doubt using his healing powers on me. Any, hey, it worked!!

    Even so...enjoy it while it lasts. I know what you mean about the schedules. Makes a big difference...plus you can get extra purrs and cuddles during the day!
