Still on this.

Actually had my blood work done about a month back and all good news, good cholesterol up, bad cholesterol down, glucose down and all other blood/urine tests fall within the normal range. My doc was happy with the results.

Have been at the same weight for the last month or so but am increasing physical activity to drop more weight. Thinking about throwing in some weights but we'll see.

Try extended fasts like 24-72 hours to break through that wall.

Still going.

It's been 6 months and this is probably the most success I've had in the last decade of trying to lose weight.

Still at that plateau and even though I've done a few 24 hour fasts, doesn't seem to get me below that but at least I'm not gaining weight either.

I'll keep increasing physical activity... let's see if more mid-week exercise helps.

Would anyone be interested in doing group walks?

I have a friend who is a health & wellness instructor within a local community college district. Part of that is leading exercise classes for her role as a teacher. We just met a few months ago. She has invited me to start walking with her (not as part of her class, just as friends.) She lives in Irvine. I live in Foothill Ranch. I was thinking maybe the Great Park would be a good place to meet -- idk, I never go there but it seems like it would be a good place to walk.

If anyone might be interested in joining, let me know. I think it's a good way to encourage yourself to get out when there is a specific time & place instead of just telling yourself you will do it "later" on your own and "later" never comes. That's what happens to me. :-)

Almost 9 months in.

Still around my plateau point but no longer slowly gaining weight like I have been the last 10 years. My goal is to get back to where I was 10 years ago and even lower if possible.

I'm patient, I figure it took me 10 years to get here... it's not going to go away in 1 year. :)

Try an extended fast of 48-72 hours once a month.  Also you want to mix it up from day to day...some days I do one meal a day and other days I do two meals and then I'll even mix in three meals once in a blue moon.  Keep the sugar and carb low and alcohol to a complete minimum.  I'm kinda stuck about 10lbs off my goal weight but that's because I need to hit the gym.
