199.6 feels so much better than 200!

Psychological maybe? Did some adjusting since things have slowed down a bit. Went back to focusing strictly on my caloric intake making sure I wasn't cheating here and there and only eating when I am truly hungry. The scale is moving again. I also stopped exercising. Yes, I said stopped. I have started to lose weight at 205 once before in my life, and I made it to 165 without exercising. It's not that I am giving it up entirely, it's just that with this major slow down, I have been discouraged so to break the monotony I decide to stop not change or increase. I can see some of you shaking your heads. I know it sounds crazy...but it is working... Sure I may be losing some muscle now, but I am ok with that. My muscles are pretty big from carrying around all that extra weight so again I'm ok with losing a little there.

Don't give up on me though ;) I do plan on restarting exercise soon. (between 195-190 pounds). This time focusing on weight training instead of cardio because I think I mentioned before, I'm a wee flabby, and well, I'd like to see if I can do something about it. I am still trying to eat very clean and drink lots of water. Water is a miracle potion. Cheap, super effective and well, I just can't express enough how much it has helped me get to where I am. God told me drinking water was essential to my good health so I am glad to finally be obeying.

That's what I'm up to. Hope you are well. That this day is finding you encouraged and refreshed, and that you know that even if we just take one, tiny step at a time, we will make it! See you at the finish line. emoticon

    I don't think that's silly. Sometimes I think our bodies need to acclimatize to the new new point. Then it's best to shift into maintenance for two or three months. If we can't maintain, then we know we gotta do something else. So just keep on keeping on! And do what you have to do.

    Yes, water is soooooo needed for the release of fat, and otherwise as well. He knows what He's doing!
