I have been stitching since I was six. It seems I have been worrying about my weight that long. This group came along at a time when I was ready to concentrate on losing.
I served a four year term on the Board of Directors of ANG and had initially planned to be at my goal before my term was over. This did not happen, but I have not gained any weight back along the way. I have adjusted my goals for the rate I am losing at this time.
It seems that I hvae been gaining and losing the same five pounds for several months. I have a well ingrained habit of exercise. If I do not get my time in riding the recumbant bike, I can tell.
I feel better than when I started but haave not made the progress i would like to make. I seem to be stuck in a long plateau. I am not gaining but I am not losing either. I readjusted by weight ticker to show more progress, instead of my initial starting point.
