Progress Pics

Just wanted to share a couple of pics. As of the second pic, I've lost about 40 pounds. (The green t-shirt is a mens size XXL and the black t-shirt is a womans size XL.) I have hit a plateau, and am not currently loosing, but not gaining either. I'm doing several things to get past the "running and not getting anywhere" phase. I am varying the kind and amount of physical activity I do, when I do those activities, and the number of calories I eat per day. I use a random number generator to help me keep on the up and up, not avoiding the exercising I like less, and not eating more calories "cuz I can." I'm still loosing and gaining the same two pounds, but eventually, so "they" say, the randomness will keep my body guessing and get past the routine it settled into the last four months. I do have to say, though, the days I get more calories than I'd been eating daily for the last several months, are nice! You have no idea how good a strip of bacon is when you haven't had one for months. (Yes, I do eat turky bacon and it's good, but it's not, as my son calls it, pig bacon.)

It was a long trip home yesterday. I generally try to get my flights out in the morning, but this one was an evening flight, going west, which seems to make it even longer. We were really tired by the time we got to our beds last night. It was, however, uneventful. So, I didn't do any KIPing. I read and slept on the flights, and we only had a short layovers. I did work on the Athletic Socks for Third Son on the way to the airport, though.


  1. Congratulations on the 40 lbs. lost! That is something to be proud of. Keep hanging in there, you will break through that plateau.

  2. Lookin' good, Lizzie! I didn't KIP yesterday, either, but I did stop at a LYS.

  3. Congrats! Not only have you lost 40 lbs., you look happier, healthier and younger, and of course, much thinner. I'd say you are a real winner at this weight loss thing.

    The rest will come with a little time.


I really am glad you're commenting. Please make sure I can find you by insuring you leave an e-mail address. It's so frustrating to have someone ask a question and no way to answer them! Thanks!
