Plateau lessons
Sunday, July 16, 2017      2 comments

Stuck on a plateau for over a month now. Not a true plateau as I gain a few pounds, lose them, and gain - all while consistently being careful to be eating to lose. Maybe undereating sometimes, maybe sodium, maybe.... This is my conclusion. Y... Read more

I changed my profile picture today. It is me, coming up the side of a cliff that got in my way trying to find a geocache. It took a long time getting to our goal, a few harrowing experiences and many scratches later, yet just 15 minutes to get... Read more

Just got home from 3 weeks in the woods full of fishing, hiking and quading. Despite some strenuous hiking, my knee surprised me by the lack of pain. Even did a cliff, by accident, and some large hills. Definitely decided me that surgery is no... Read more

A month of eating really well, albeit some times a little under calorie wise, and yesterday I went ahead and splurged. Ended up with a gyro on my plate and thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing. Till this morning. It might have been just a bit mu... Read more

Two surgeries in the past few years - and the returning cause. Hopefully the surgeon says because of his last "fix" it won't lead to the same situation, yet no real solutions to address the cause. Resolve to not go thru the surgery again, to n... Read more

Last time I lost weight, my support team was here on sp. I met a few new friends, and did what I could to encourage others. I was encouraged by those who were successfully tackling new adventures whether it was weight loss, a marathon, or a ne... Read more
