I was beginning to get discouraged by the perception that I was stalling too early. I'm not quite three weeks in to this and thought I should still be in that golden era where the weight magically melts away. So, I looked back at all of the data, I've kept for the past five years. Guess what? I am right on target.
This sort of yo-yo has happened every time. Whew! While, I don't like it. Knowing that this is my pattern makes it easier to stick to my plan. I can ride this out and come out smaller on the other side.
