This is a fasting low, so I'll bounce up again, but I feel like I've finally gotten out of that 212–213 set point that I was stuck in!

Not a scale thing which hasn't been moving but today, after a couple of injuries (elbow and hamstring) taking me out for quite awhile, I swam a whole thousand yards. Very gratifying. Next time a whole mile.

CityGirl, it feels so good to be off a set point, doesn't it!

I'm finally in the 170s and really excited about it!

Ferrygirl, those 170s are looking good!! Jschwab, that's great that you're recovering from your injuries and getting back to some big swims. I know its an important part of your life to be in the pool.

It's really critical to my livelihood, too, since I work as a lifeguard/swim instructor. I have to be healthy to perform my work!

Jscwab, I feel you. I spent most of May bouncing around the same three lbs. I thought I'd broken through when I won the last challenge and the next day it was all back and I spent the next 10 days trying to get rid of it again. I just kept reminding myself that I was doing everything right and that eventually would something would have to give. After a few illogical moves things started shifting again, but it gave me the mentals for a while for sure.

Good morning everyone,
I know it is easy to say and hard to accomplish, but not impossible. so keep the hard work. It will reflect sooner when you less expect it. Make a little change maybe stay away from artificial sweeteners, hams/sausages (those things that are previously prepared in a plant, or even protein bars or drinks - all of the above contain extra chemicals that is hard for the body to process so its response it to get stuck on stupid.

My weight loss has been rather slow compared to other times, but I am blaming it on the Celsius drink that I am drinking one or twice a day for a little bit of energy. But I am still losing at least a little; so I am ok with that in the meanwhile.
