That always motivates me to get all my cleaning done.

Hope you all have a great weekend!
Hooray for getting settled into the new house! Nothing like getting your own space and routine back!

I don't want to jinx myself here but I haven't experience a stall yet and hopefully never will but it could start when I get closer to a healthy BMI.
Exactly - sometimes I wonder if it's going to quit working. I know logically it won't, but there's just this little piece of my brain that doesn't believe me!

The support on here is so invaluable.

Oh big news. I went to the supermarket this morning and I found rutabaga which I don't think we have where I'm from originally (New Zealand) so I'm going to make rutabaga fries tonight. Do people keep their rutabaga in the fridge or should it be treated like onions or potatoes? I live In a hot climate so am not sure.
I do the same thing - a couple or three slow weeks and then a big week. Learned to just accept that's the way my body wants to let it go and try to relax. Congrats on not letting it get to you!

I keep my rutabagas in the fridge. Don't know that it's totally necessary but I figure since the store keeps them in the refrigerated cases it makes sense to do that.

Sometimes I catch sight of myself and it is hard for me to accept that the much slimmer person's figure is actually me! Not complaining....
Yeah, I wondered if I should post that in the Over 50 thread - showing my age!

Isn't that a great feeling?? I look in the mirror and it's like wow! That's really me!

Went & got nails done today - I now have green, blue and silver nails! Goes well with my Seahawks t-shirt (Beast Mode no less!).
