    Oh....oh...oh....that food....must go to store immediately and get some lamb chops. If only I had a motivated primal cook here to prepare my meals...

    Actually I like to cook but the idea of having food like that appear before me is intoxicating!

    Fitting into jeans is absolutely the best! And it is funny how things move. I started fitting into my Lucky Brands a little while ago even though the scale was the same. I couldn't believe. it.

    Even nicer than fitting into new jeans is getting rid of the old!

    It's been so long I think I've forgotten what it is.

    Woot on the jeans! Turning fat into muscle is always a good thing.

    I've been stalled for about a month too (my last drop was only 0.2 pounds, so don't let the date fool you) but I still feel skinnier. I'll take it.

    That food looks marvellous.

    88 pounds in one year is fantastic! Plateaus are an almost inevitable part of the process. Life just doesn't move in straight lines. Holding the line at a difficult, stressful point in your life was in and of itself an important accomplishment. You'll feel it when your psychological and physical batteries are recharged, and then you'll be off and running again. In the meanwhile, gloat a bit and rejoice in how far you've come.

    No fear of you quitting. I know that you really don't want to go back to where you were before.
