well, well, well

I must be a hibernating mammal.

That's the only rational excuse I can come up with for not having lost my pound-and-a-half a week since the beginning of August. Not only have I *not* lost weight, depending on how forgiving my scale is on a given day, I may have gained a pound or two.

So, I wonder, am I predestined to look like a beer barrel on stilts this winter, or can I find a way to trick my inner bear and hit if not my exact weight target, at least my 5-lb ideal weight range???????

I know what to do. I know how to do it. All I have to do is: DO IT!

    Maybe you should pray for snow. I remember you worked off a lot of calories shoveling paths in the snow for your grandchildren last winter. I believe a little snow would do it for you.

    Not that I am trying to come up with excuses for you, but think about what 1.5 pounds means when you are in the 150's -- that is a 1% drop! Maybe 1 pound per week is more realistic? And where does your current weight put you on the BMI scale?

    I guess what I am trying to say is don't beat yourself up too hard (that is MY domain! Just ask my DW!). Relax, enjoy life, get some runs in (have you been running lately?), and those pounds will just melt away!

    Plateaued in July, so I know how you feel. I really feel that eventhough scale did not reflect my hard work, I knew I was doing all the right things.

    My clothes were getting looser and I really felt my body firming up. I tried to concentrate on those things, do my best and yes, I finally broke through the plateau.

    Hope you break through yours, as well!
