I just couldn't lose that extra pound in time for the Phoenix challenge.....dammit! Well, this must be my self-imposed plateau. Still, I feel good and I am much more active than I have been in the past months (which doesn't say much - but I feel like an Olympian). Today I woke up with sore muscles today and I have always loved that feeling. Since our trip to Tampa, and me actually swimming in the ocean and the hotel pool, I really want to swim for my exercise more. I thought my swimming days were over and it was SO great to find out I was wrong. I'm going to look around the area and see if there is a place close to home we could go. I am still really self-conscious about going to the beach. We had a lot of comments from people who saw me trying to walk out there. Once I'm in the water it's fine, but I really don't like putting on a show (not that kind anyway!) I hate being stared at. I can't wait until my consult next week..........................

    Definitely probably the issue with not losing weight is muscles. The wonderful thing about muscles is that muscles shape your body, you feel better and stronger, even if it doesn't lose the weight right away. It will come eventually. I agree too -if people gawk as you make your way to the pool, bugger on them. It's their issue not yours. :)

    Heaather, just a thought....you may not have lost a lb. because you gained it in muscle with all that swimming. Keep up the good work! Muscle is always prettier than fat!! And tell anyone who has any comments to make about needing help to go piss up a rope!!
