    I think I was 30 before I could grow a passable mustache. My beard came in strawberry-blond so I could go days without shaving and nobody would really notice.

    Both my older boys (20s) grow great big beards at a moments notice (seemingly), I guess that comes from their Mom.

    LOL@ Siobhan. I thought the same thing. Their mom grows a beard?

    So it's been a while since I've weighed myself- I don't plan on it until the 22nd (one year paleo) I know I'm likely going to be pleateaued but that's besides the point. Yesterday I had 2 gals walk up and mention that I'm looking good and that they see a difference in me. Could just be the clean shaven face, could be weight change I don't know. Definitely noticed/got excited about something this morning... Stretch marks! Yes I am excited because at very least that means that stuff is shifting in me. I know it's an odd thing to be excited about but damn it it at least shows change!

    LOL! Yeah, when you stop puffing out the stretch marks, they really start to show, don't they? *sigh* I've got way too many.

    Compliments from the gals are extra special, aren't they? I get a little uneasy when I get overly-frequent or overly-enthusiastic compliments from men, but that's mainly because I'm taken. And I think it psyches my hubby out a bit too.

    Enjoy your plateau. Seriously. You take a little break, recharge your batteries, make sure you don't lose ground, and then you're ready for a fresh attack.

    Oh... well I've been plateaued since September. But I have got from weighing like a maniac 2-3 times a day to not remembering the last time I weighed in. I also decided to stop ignoring my cravings for sweets and I've been eating more fruit. I've been wanting apples for a while and heck I even bought some plumbs and frozen mango (for shakes!). I'm not going to stress about crap anymore. Going to to back to the way it was as a lifestyle and not a stressful science experiment. We'll see how it goes. Either way I'm happy

    Good for you! I believe the stress of trying to lose weight as quickly and effectively as possible is what has really messed me up in the past. Now, I am really working on making this a sustainable, healthy, lifestyle choice and I feel so much more at ease. Great job Ecks!!

    I agree Ecks! I get so caught up in how many grams of this or that and forget to enjoy. At least I am also stuck at a plateau, but I am still so glad that I am not gaining weight and can stop and wait to get the energy for another attack on the fat. Glad you are seeing changes

    I feel smaller today. Ever get those days? My pants feel big, my shirt feels loose... Don't know if I'm smaller or just the clothing combination that I'm wearing but it's a good feeling
