Hi all,

Just am so happy to share ... yesterday I received an e-mail that I won a bracelet from the OH Mantra giveaway, so I am so blasted exited, I can't stand myself, LOL!

Also, just this past weekend, I completed my first triathlon!  There are pictures here if you would like to see: HCTriathlon 2014 pictures

I have been super busy, also playing softball, and now trying to figure out now if I want to train some more and do another tri (they are right, it can be quite addicitve, but I wish they weren't so expensive!)

I have been hovering around 160-162 since 5 months, and I'm trying not to get defeated, but definitely afraid of this being the end of the honeymoon!  I'm only 7.5 months out, so I just don't want it to end, but at the same time, not much I can do if it does, right?  Well it's a slow day at work, so I had time to post, so a hello to you all, and hope everyone is doing well!

Congratualations!!!! to finish is to win!!!!

Looking great!!!  I really doubt you are at the end of the honeymoon yet at 7.5 months but you are about where I was when I slowed way down.  I upped my protein and lowered my carbs and kept losing slowly.  Esp.  if you are working out hard, you need the protein.  Why not post for a while on Miles and menus and see if folks have some suggestions.

Congrats on winning the bracelet!  I don't think I have ever won anything worth anything.

ONLY 7.5 months out is a plus!  If you follow the RNY program of HIGH Protein and LOW Carbs the honeymoon period should last quite awhile.  I lost for about 18 months.  If you "hovering" increase your protein for 3 or 4 days (preferably through Protein Whey) and then drop it back down for a couple of days and that should break your stall.

Congrats on your triathlon!  I'm going to check out your pictures as soon as I'm done posting.


God is walking with me every step of the way. Because of HIM this is possible!!
