Stuck

I am stuck. After losing 20 pounds last year, I have not lost any additional weight. It is no mystery why; I eat and I cheat.

My goal is lose 25 pounds total and I would like to do it before I head out for my long weekend en femme in Ohio next month. I have four weeks to do it and I know I can if I don't cheat.

The trip to Ohio is for Hamvention, the big ham radio convention held annually in the Dayton area. If you are a ham (or not) and plan to attend, I hope we can make an "eyeball QSO."

A lot closer to home, I will be attending and presenting at the Transgender Lives Conference on April 28 at the UConn Health Center in Farmington, Connecticut. Again, if you plan to attend, I hope we can meet in person.

If you have been reading this blog for awhile, you know what I look like, but most likely, I don't know what you look like, so if you see me at Hamvention or Transgender Lives, or anywhere else,  don't be shy — I'd love to meet you, so please introduce yourself and I'll talk your ear off!

  1. Fight the good fight, Stana! If you don't watch your waistline no one else will! Drink more water before meals and tell yourself when you skip the treat it's for Hamvention. I'm down 30 from my max, and my male side would like 20 more.. femme side would like 40... probably leave us a bit thin for a man tho...

  2. If you are maintaining your weight then you are doing well most people gain it all back and then some.

  3. I think that most weight loss efforts hit a plateau. I was given strict doctors orders in October to lose weight since my A-1-C hit the diabetic range. I lost 25 lbs in 4 months and cut my number down to the pre-diabetic range. I still have a long way to go and would like to lose another 25 lbs but in the 2 months since I got my reading down I have only shed about 5 lbs. I think once the fear factor was cut down and the Sword of Damocles was not longer hovering over my head my license to eat and cheat was partially reinstated.

  7. Just another thought. I do love the pictures of the old army guys femulating while in the various prison camps. Wonder how many of them got their start there? And how many still do?
    Have a great day,
