194.9 at 16 weeks, so, it seems my plateau continues.
Had 2 Iyengar yoga classes this week, which I love.

Yesterday was 19 weeks and I weighed in at 190.9.
I'm wearing a t-shirt that never fit before.
I'm recommitting to seeing 178 happen sooner than later, my intermediate goal. I'd be elated if I hit that in 5 weeks ( week 24 ) my 52 week goal remains a fit 165. That would be down 90 from my years plateauing at 255 as a lacto vegetarian (until 10 years ago when I stopped dairy)
I've been taking my yoga class once a week.

184.3 at 22 weeks. Feeling good. Not eating after dinner and portion control are still strong, the new normal. In less than 6 months, I've added years to my life and don't remember when I last fealt so solid, decades ago. (chest thump)

Thanks Dylan. When I was more active here years back I made several friends I'm still somewhat in touch with. This time I've mostly just posted as a commitment to my self, regardless if anyone reads my posts, and haven't commented as much regarding other folks.
Thanks for your service to the community.

25 weeks 187.9 holding tuff at -40
Definitely slacked on some of my earlier rules on eating. People who haven't seen me since Thanksgiving are still shocked.

26 weeks 186.3.
That's it. I can't just lose any more weight through calorie control. I've been on a loss plateau for a month anyway. I'm around my average weight from when I was in my 20-30s, two and three decades ago. My goal was to lose almost another 10 lbs before this next phase, but that ain't happening. I trust that I will be able to maintain my eating discipline while I build some muscle. I've lost as much muscle as I'm willing to sacrifice. I feel weak. I think and feel that I needed to get to this point. For years previously I tried to build muscle beginning with fat over 30%, I got stronger, but couldn't get under 25%, where I am now. Yes, I've turned "skinny-fat" for the moment. My permanent goal is still 165#@10%bf. I didn't have the psychic will or vision I have now until now and didn't make time for lifting, running or yoga. That's over.

Goddess Radha thank you, the last 10 of the 50 I offered You will come with the help of Ishtadeviji Bajarangbali. Baba Hanuman, let's go, we've got a war to fight!

Watch what happens now.
