Otherwise, things have been going fine. I’m not feeling very disciplined lately, and it’s starting to show on the scale. I can assure you, the lack of “losing” is not from muscle. I’m trying not to get discouraged…thanks to everyone who has offered some support.

This effort can be tough when looking at it for the long haul rather than some short-term goal.

Back at Rudy’s, and I climbed all the way to the top again. Whew, I’m pooped.

Stayed the Same…Have I Hit a Plateau?

192 Again, originally uploaded by helpmelose25.

Hopped on the scale this morning and had there was no change from last week. After steady loses in the first few weeks and a little gain last week and no change this week, I’m wondering if I’m leveling off.

I can’t use the “I’ve added more exercise” excuse, because aside from my stairs-only policy, I haven’t added any more fitness activities.

How do I break this pattern? Suggestions anyone?

Missing My Carmel Apple

Hot Cider, originally uploaded by helpmelose25.

I saved up calories ALL week as I fantasized about the deliscious carmel apple I had last year when we did the From the Land show. You can imagine my dismay when I found out the carmel apple lady wasn’t here this year. šŸ˜¦

I was downright sad when I found that out. I mean, the carmel apple was really that good. Alas, I had an orange-cranberry hickory nut scone instead. It was delicious, and I’ve since stopped whining about the apple…especially when combined with a cozy cup of hot cider.
