I'm not losing any additional pounds, I'm holding steady, but I think the body re-comp is going on without me.

It's probably refractive error from my vision correction, but who knows?
While of course I try to be very careful, my take is that it's probably safer to avoid that particular species of obstacle just in case.

Oh also, all this new primal cooking has me looking at Le Creuset dutch ovens, which are apparently quality but $$$$$! xP
Kirkland brands (i.e., Costco) also has one, and I'd bet it's just as good.
I use it for everything. Soups, stews, chilis, stock, braising...I even used to use it for No-Knead Bread (which is what I originally bought it for!) back when I was still eating/baking bread.
Heavy as hell. You don't ever wanna drop one of these things on your foot. :x
My Primal Meanderings
Why go for costly, enameled Dutch ovens when Lodge makes much less expensive plain cast iron ones that not only cook superbly, they impart some iron into the food to help prevent anemia! Properly seasoned cast iron is better than any non-stick surface you'll ever find!
My Frustration today? That I gotta keep re-seasoning my smaller cast-iron frying pan because my DS keeps putting it in the sink with Dawn liquid squirted into it!...... I leave it sitting on the stove with left-over grease in it because I WANT to leave it there -- a quick wipe (or re-heat) will take care of it. Can't yell too much -- at least he's trying to help clean up the kitchen, I guess.

Goal 160 lbs -- last time there was in junior high!

Never going beyond that. I don't think I could without getting seriously skinny. I'm 5'10". Right now I would say I look "lean" but not concentration camp style.
BTW. There have been a couple of references to a set of pictures of people for use in determining one's body fat content but I can't seem to locate the link. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
