I know this isn't an according to Hoyle "plateau" but been stuck at 156 for 2 weeks...then suddenly BOOM 156 yesterday and 153.5 this morning. Maybe playing hockey 5 out of the last 7 days will do that. I don't know how people manage to keep plugging away after not seeing the scale dip for months...that is TENACITY. Ya ya, I know it isn't about the scales.
But you see last New Years I made 2 resolutions (and I NEVER make resolutions)...marry the woman in my life, and lose weight (LOL like that every works) back to 150 lbs come Jan 1 2013 in a healthy way. Well, I did one and I'm 3.5 lbs from the other. But I got some surgery coming tomorrow and that will tank my exercise for a few weeks, then the dreaded Christmas with some of the best cooking and baking in the world courtesy of my well-meaning Mom and Aunts who, despite their pleas to the contrary, are trying to put the rest of us into blissful sugar comas. So, realistically, I may have to settle for being at a healthy weight but being a couple lbs short of my Jan 1 target. I suppose it could be worse...ya, I can learn to be happy with that.
On my mind all week...how do pro NHL goalies, particularly the old vets like Brodeur, play multiple OTs during the playoffs after a long season, and still stand (let alone stop the puck)?? It hit me this week as to how incredibly impressive that is.
