Sing it with me... "Come stall away, come stall away, come stall away with meeeeeeeee..." (sung to the tune of the Styx hit Come Sail Away) I guess I really should be used to it by now... I stall for LONG cycles of time! My last stall was about 15 weeks. No weight loss at all from about Dec 1 till mid March. Then, suddenly, I dropped a few pounds. Now, I'm stalled again. Since 3/14/08, I have been drifting around between 197 and 200 pounds. I must say that while I am totally okay with this even as a final resting point and a maintenance area, I wonder at times whether I will lose any more. I see parts of my body that look as if perhaps I've lost fat or replaced it with more muscular tissue. I don't have a muscular appearance, but I certainly look better (baggy skin and all) than I did at 410 pounds! How could you NOT? LOL And, I feel sooooo much better too!
I rode a bike for the first time in 20 years yesterday... I'm talking about a real BIKE, not an exercise bike or stationery bike... If I had understood how the gears worked on the danged thing so that I didn't feel like I was crawling along on the hill, I might have rode it further than I did. But, I RODE A BIKE! 1987 or 1988 was, quite literally, the last time my butt rode a bike. And, even then at about 275 pounds, I did it in the evenings after dark. I was lucky to live in a neighborhood where this was safe to do and I was so much less self-conscious about my appearance in the dark! I've got to figure out the levers for the gear system on this danged bike (it is my hubby's and he doesn't have a clue either!) so that I can make a habit of this. I absolutely HATE riding an exercise bike.
