Plateaus BLOW

78 and holding.  No, I am not referring to the current temperature (although I think it is quite interesting that Florida is experiencing cooler weather than most of the US...yet there is still a debate about climate change).  But I digress.  As many of you know, I have been focusing on my health this year.  Through diet and exercise (as well as the support of my doctor and family and friends), I have lost 78 pounds since the beginning of January.  No small feat.  However, I have been holding at 78 pounds lost for over 6 weeks.  I should be happy...I will get happy...but plateaus BLOW.  Especially when you continue to do the work!  I know I need to be patient...but I never seem to have enough patience for anything.  I need my competitive "state" to kick in ASAP!  My initial goal was 111 in 2011 (what can I say...I'm gay and I LOVE a theme, so sue me!).

In reality, the past 6 weeks have been filled with an intensity that my old body may not have been able to sustain.  Between the 25th Anniversary concert for the band (as well as other band issues that I was tending too) and transitioning into my new job, I should be thankful that I did not gain weight!!!  The interesting thing about plateaus is that you are surrounded by ledges.  Falling off the ledge is not an option...there is no going back.     

I am excited about my family vacation this weekend and I am sure I will be blogging along the way.  Then I will re-focus on my diet when I return.  Stay tuned...
