Well, it was my 6-month 'surgi-versary" this week - everything seems on track .. broke out of the stall from last month, lost a few more lbs, and back on another stall now ... and the dreaded and foretold hair loss has finally occurred. It's been falling out in great gobs for about a month now, every time I wash my hair, brush my hair, etc. It is very alarming to see all that hair, like every single day, in a pile in my hand or on the floor ... but really, overall on my head it doesn't look
Well, I've been losing and gaining 0.1 lbs at a time, within the same pound marker (and no body fat% losses registering), for the last 4 weeks! Now that's what I call a stall!
I didn't want to jinx it by calling it early, but it's been 5 days since I broke out of that pattern, and my body fat % is dropping again.

I wanted to share a couple of protein food ideas that I recently came across and totally love!
First one is a new product at Costco (new to me, in Canada) called Kodiak Cakes - Flapjack and Waffle mix. I was craving pancakes, and this
So, I was reading some forum posts, and a discussion about BMI came up. There's a number I haven't calculated in a while ... I plunked my numbers into one of those online jobbies and low and behold, I am now considered 'overweight' instead of 'obese'.
I've been 'obese' for as long as I can remember ... never thought I'd be thrilled about being 'overweight' - but there you go!
