Breakthrough...freak
in' finally

Thursday, December 06, 2012

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.

    " . . . I may have to settle for being at a healthy weight but being a couple lbs short of my Jan 1 target. . . . "

Great attitude! You've made amazing progress over the year and being just a few lbs away from the target for another couple of weeks after the target date is No Big Deal in the grand scheme of your health/fitness/weight loss journey.

Really enjoyed your blog--you come across as a really up-beat kind of guy.

    Congratulations on being within 1.5 lbs of goal. I am having toe surgery next week, but I'll only be laid up one day. Enjoy the holiday and the sugar coma. I'm going to.

    I guess if you made what they made ($) you would learn to live through the pain... Good luck at the Doc's, and yes, the dreaded Aunt's and Mom (I'm one of those:))
Happy Merry Hoo Hoo

    Relatives and holidays are hard, but with your attitude, I think you will do fine. Just be aware. :) Best wishes for your surgery!

    it's hard for family to grasp the idea of something you once loved and asked for is now a huge no-no. they just do what they do and love you like they know how to emoticon
i pulled a HUGE no-no and hurt my husband's grandma's feelings when i refused to eat her famous triple chocolate cake.... next time i'll suck it up for the sake of her feelings. cooking is her life. and i still feel like an a-hole over that.
glad you came out of your mini-plateau! emoticon
