Good Morning IPeeps:

A gloomy rainy day here in East Tennessee. And to top it off the Woosh Fairy didn't make it here this morning. I gained a pound I must be at my plateau now since I have been fighting to lose, but keep losing and gaining pretty much the same over the past couple weigh ins. This really sucks. I was so hoping to be closer to my goal weight by now. But I am not being a Debbie Downer, because I know that if I keep at it, it will eventually begin to decline. I have even tossed the idea around of changing my goal weight if I continue to stay here. My body seems to like it at this weight and I am in size 9/10 and I feel healthy and so much better than I did before I started losing. I'll give it the rest of the month to see what happens before making this decision.

Good Luck to those who still have to weigh in and CONGRATULATIONS to those who have lost this week. We ALL are rocking this plan.

Thank you so much. I got to thinking, I've been working out the past 16 days, I wonder if I may be gaining some muscle, I know that my calves look a little more formed. So maybe that is why I am gaining. Hhhhhmmmm.....could be.

I'm gonna keep working on it, I'm not gonna let this get me down. It's just part of weight loss world. I'll admit it sucks and I can honestly see why people get so frustrated and want to quit because they have worked so hard and then it's like a brick wall is standing in front of you. But, I've learned so much being on this plan and on here that I have realized that you have to learn to find a way to climb over that wall or knock it down and take control and not let it stop you. WE are in control, period, regardless. Things are always going to be put in front of us to stop us from what ever we want to obtain, and this is no different. We can't and must not give up because of a block in the road.

That could be the reason. You're replacing the fat you're losing with muscle.

Good morning Carol! Just wanted to say I love your new profile photo - the smiling one.

---
Well, I'm off to pick up my new eyeglasses this morning. Got one of those 2-pair deals, so if I break one, I've at least got a spare. These are more trendy looking than I've had, but I wanted to break out some.

May have to slip the refuse hauler a 20 this morning as I have so many cans of garbage out there, from clearing out the basement and stuff.

My WI was up .5 pd in a month, but...I lost fat and gained muscle, so I'm very happy with that! I guess all the running around, up and down stairs and ladders, etc., has been building muscle!

May you all have thoroughly a delightful, OP, creative Tuesday!

Good morning! Trying to get myself up and going for the day. My daughter went to a birthday party for a friend last night- we didn't get home until 8:30, then I couldn't eat until late, not enough water....blah. Scale is up but I know that it is just my body out of whack. Trying to make it through the next week and a half of work....then it is vacation time! Seriously cannot wait......long overdue.

Rissimo- I would think that the working out (replacing fat with muscle) is due to your gain/stabilization. Hang in there! You are healthy and looking great!

Riss ~ You look absolutely amazing! And if you're gaining muscle you know that'll end up helping burn that plateau fat right? Food for thought: Did you read the article about people having a "set" weight? Also, you could always try "boot camp" of the 4 packets and no real protein per day for a week, see if that "shakes things up"

Good morning. It is WI day for me and I am praying the Woosh fairy came to visit and knocks me into onederland. I will be sad if I don't make it, but will survive. I was hoping to go mow the jungle today, but it is rainy, guess I will clean out a few cabinets and closets then.

Today will also be DH's first WI. Anxious to see how he did.

Have a great day "losers"!!!
