    I went to the Health Unit at my job the other day because I was a little worried about my blood pressure. I automatically reminded the Medical Assistant to use the extra large cuff but she looked at me, squeezed my arm, and said, "No, I think the smaller one will fit." She was right and the added bonus was that my blood pressure is still holding steady at below 120.

    I went home for the holidays and actually enjoyed shopping with my family. I'm two dress sizes smaller than I thought I was and actually found beautiful clothes that fit in the clearance sections.

    I had four airplane flights on our recent vacation. I had the middle seat on all of them and didn't impinge on anyone's space!

    Here's a little NSV story. When I first got to my current assignment last year, I was confronted with tiny blue armchairs in every office. Just looking at them, I knew they would be difficult to sit in, but I tried anyway. I needed the help of two people to get out! Yesterday, I found myself alone in a room with one of the little monsters and decided to try my luck. It was still an uncomfortable beast but I got in and out of it without any struggle, although not much room to spare. Still, it was a victory and I don't have to avoid the chairs and stand, or have another chair rolled in because I don't fit.

    If anyone is going through a frustrating stall, I'd like let you know that taking a break works! Well, it worked for me. For one week, I kept to my prescribed low carb/high Protein diet, kept my calories between 1200-1500, but i reduced my exercise from 45-60 minutes to 15-20 minutes. It was hard to not feel guilty or lazy by doing shorter workouts but the end result is great. After my 7 day "break", I started back to my regular routines and now the weight is melting off again. Thank you to the Poster who suggested it! I feel great and the frustration is gone.

    I just started using Patch Aid Multivitamin Patches. So far, so good. We’ll see what my next Vitamin panel says.

    I can clasp my hands behind my back. And although I was still the biggest person on my travel tour, I wasn't the slowest or the least fit. I kept up with the tour guide, climbed over ruins, and hiked up hills with ease. I'm starting to see muscle definition again and my shoes feel too big. The weight loss is slowing down, but I'm still seeing wonderful changes.

    My job brought me here. I have a couple of years left on this assignment. I have two uncles rolling in their graves because i’m here but they knew better than anyone that you go where Uncle Sam sends you.

    Just got through the grandmother of all stalls and all it took was a cold virus to get me losing again. I’ve lost an entire dress size so I’m digging in to the back of my closet to reacquaint myself with old clothes. I’m touring Hoi An, Vietnam this weekend and trying very hard not to go into the fabric shops to have new clothes made. I’ve still got more weight to lose and a bespoke closet at the end of my assignment is just the incentive I need to stay motivated.
