My weight flexes up -- and I'm still bouncing around between the 168 and 170ish, but I wore a suit yesterday -- size 16 on the tag and the skirt was slack -- it sat a couple of inches below my waist.

I'm close to the halfway mark -- I'd be on it if the scale didn't keep fluxing -- but I wear some of the same clothes. Still, the belly that the skirt was haning on is one inch smaller.

I did the "tall box climb" on Friday -- that's a 14" step -- and usually I am too sore to move the next day, but I didn't notice anything but that workout's sweat.

I will reach my next birthday shortly before my first SP anniversary. I'm learning patience. Perseverance has been there, but it was always a "start over" event. I'm still learning how to persevere with more consistent effort. Keeping the hope up for change certainly helps now that my body is changing!

I can't make the scale change, but I can exercise. I can't make the scale change, but I can eat nutritionally. I can't make the scale change, or can I? I haven't learned the pattern that creates predictability, except to lean into it and keep going.

I would like to be at 151 before the trip to France (we leave June 20). This is a personal coup as I weighed in at 152 when I went in for a partial thyroidectomy. I don't know if I will get there, but I will keep pushing in that direction!

    Oh how the phrase "lean into it" is resonating in my brain. So right.

    Every step you take in the right direction, takes you closer to where you want to be. You are doing great. Love your attitude.
