    I'm expecting to mini-plateau again soon. I'm not eating at the kind of deficit to sustain this sort of loss. At some point, it should level off, or at least slow down to match my daily deficit. But for now, I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

    ok, that's weird. No matter how many times I edit and fix it, the SW, CW and GW keep going lower case instead of caps.
  • Lacerta- Congrats on your win!!!

    OK, what changed on the site? No matter what I type, I get Sw instead of SW, cw instead of CW and gw instead of GW. What gives? Edited to add: Weirder, it only does it if the post doesn't have something else above it. When I added something above, it works right.
  • Lacerta, the site does the same thing with my uppercase letters too!

    I'm expecting one more good week and then a 10 day plateau (my usual pattern), so I might get to 5 pounds by the end of the month, but if not, it probably won't happen until mid September.
  • Lacerta- Thank you! Our weight loss patterns sound very similar!!!
