Tomorrow will complete 2 weeks on the palette control wagon. I was under 210 this morning! The scale shows bf down to 29.5% the lowest since getting the scale, 13 months ago. I'd jumped to almost 220 when I stopped my heavier weight lifting, as soon as I was finally able to do cardio again (I also have done push ups and weighted crunches) after many months. Certainly my heart and lungs enjoy the change and my knee has continued to heal, especially I believe, because of the strengthening of my legs and the calf that had a sympathetic problem due to months of heavy limping, especially late last year and earlier this one. I know the scale lies based on the stage of elimination of the psylium dosages, salt intake, etc. But, the trend is definitely in the right direction. I'd love to stay at a pace of -5 lbs each week, but I expect it may slow to just a few, which is ok, because it seems I'm in this for the intermediate term at least. I especially look forward to seeing my belt size reduce further, as well as revealing my increased musculature, gained over the last year+. Off with the blubber burqa! I assume I'll have increased energy and less lethargy at a more ideal weight.

Congratulations are in order. And I know there will be more to come!

I'll lift my tea cup in honor of you today, my friend.
