    I'm soooooooo close!

    @Gretta we had to push the closing date back to mid June because we have not had time to make preparations to move.

    I'm soooooooo close!

    As some of you know, I've been in a 3 1/2 month stall. Decided to put my scale away for a month to focus on my meal plan. I have a lot of distractions since I decided to put the scale away. My wife and I were closing on a new home this month then my mother-in-law fell gravely ill. She several surgeries including one to clean out an infection of the brain. During these tough times I have not been able to follow my meal plan as I would have liked. I've decided to weigh myself after a month and found that I have lost 4 lbs! I don't know how it happened, my stall may have broken finally! I am 2 pounds away from onderland! As most of you know other than walking, I have done no exercise at all. Here's an updated side by side picture. Before I gained all the weight I had gained, I was a muscular guy who worked out regularly. It's amazing to me that I gained some of my muscles back while shedding the weight. I'm also going to include a picture from 2012 before my weight gain. Please keep me and my family in your prayers.

    Closing was supposed to be on Tuesday the 29th. My mother-in-law has been gravely ill and we had to push the closing date back to mid June because we haven't had time to prepare for moving.

    I'm so happy it's over. During the past 6 months, we have fallen in love with a house, put the offer in and missed out. For a while it was it was rinse, wash and repeat. We love it! My wife can't wait to put her touches on our new home.

    One year out

    @Carina like @Nana Trish said, I am embracing my stall. I'm staying the course and not getting discouraged. I put my scale up and it's only coming out once a month. There's one thing about stalls, they will eventually break. I've been through many of them to know this. So keep your head up and stay the course and don't get discouraged.
