Casting Pounds Followup 3

It seems I have slowed down on the weight loss. I'm holding steady at 200.5, with a total weight loss of 17 pounds. I'll attribute the stagnation to a couple of things. First of all, last week I pigged out 3 days with a late supper not long before I went to bed. That left me with heartburn each night and morning when I got up, accompanied by a general feeling of sickness. I missed a lot of sleep last week too, so that probably didn't help.

Secondly, and more importantly, I've been gaining muscle mass like crazy! I'm quite happy about that. Truthfully I don't care what the number is on the scale. I just want to be healthy and feel good. I noticed something last week for the first time I can recall in several years. I was laying on my back in bed when I looked over at the mirror on the closet door. I realized my stomach was flat with my chest. OK, I can't actually recall the last time that was the case. I'm sure it has been nearly 10 years.

For all of the house work I've done on my day off I've treated myself to a big glass of cream soda. That's gone, so it's water for me now. I'm feeling great. Recording with drummer Dan Deming will make me feel even better tonight. :-) I'll drink to that.
