Stabilization...1 year, 138 days...+3.5lbs

Working back down to my goal weight. Taking a bit more effort than I'd hope, but at least the scale is moving down. Phew. Literally and figuratively, here's a step in the right direction...

...not certain who was more excited to go on a long walk this morning...Scamps or me or my sweetie. But, alas, a Nor'easter is due late tonight through early Saturday morning. It being Spring and all, we'll have little to no accumulation, but still...I am so done with this winter. Argh.

Need to run to the store for a few staples...dreading that.

So, how's this for crazy? My pal has chicken pox. CHICKEN POX? He's 47 years old, for goodness sakes. How is that possible? Sensitive soul that I am, I promptly banned him from the house. Yes, I've had them, but, ewwwwww. All that puss and gross icky-ness. Not in my crib...uh-uh.

Anyway, need to think about what to put on the menu for this evening...perhaps a homemade tomato basil soup? Mmmmmm, that sounds very good. Decision made.

Off to the store...woo-hoo!

Stabilization...1 year, 135 days...+3.8lbs

Yep...I'm 3.8lbs over my goal weight. Though I will not being doing a steak day. Why? Because I started Hormone Replacement Therapy (perimenopause symptoms are taking their toll on me) and I realize my body needs to adjust to this new addition. Not to mention, I've been eating clean, clothes still fit great (think my brand new size 8P jeans), I'll give myself a few weeks to get a handle on things.

Make no mistake tho, it is tough to see that number rise...valid explanation or not! But I'm watching it closely...was back within the +/-2lb range a couple of times last week, that's why I think it's my body trying to stabilize.

Otherwise, all is good in my little dieting world. My gal pal is trying for the third time...happily, she hit the one week mark yesterday (-5.2lbs.). Granted, not as fast as some, but she has less weight to lose and we all know that means the dreaded .1-.3 range loss mode.

Of course, her husband cut out butter and has dropped't diet with 'em, can't shoot 'em. Well, you can, but rarely do you get away with it...but I digress.

Getting ready for Spring...can't come soon enough.

Okay, back to work.

Eat and be well,

Jane Doh!
