I've been on a plateau for months now. Going from 242 to 218 was relatively easy, the pounds just flew off. I was feeling great, cycling like a maniac, eating well, and enjoying life. So I was pretty surprised when I realized that, though I was continuing to do all the right things, I was not losing weight--at least not much. I have been slowly creeping down. Stuck for a while at 218 and then 217 and then 216 and so on.
Well, this morning I came very close to tipping the scale at 212 for the first time--I think I was at 213.2. Given my cycling goals for next year (in Minnesota we're already setting our minds on winter) I need to get down to 185 or 190 which is my ultimate goal so I'd sure like to be loosing faster than this. However, I'm very grateful for small gains and I'll squeeze all of the joy out of this I can!
