10 August 2006


The first picture is me with my daughters Sandis and Stella (up top) after a family camping trip. The second picture is me on top of Mount Sherman at 14,036 ft. This is the first 14,000 foot mountain (14'er) I have ever summitted. 1.5 years prior this feat was unfathomable (and unreachable) to me. My weight loss has slowed, I'm at 110 lbs lost at the beginning of August after having hit 100 lbs in April. But I continue to feel better, am much more active outdoors, and my clothes continue to fit better. I have so much energy I can hardly find enough stuff to do to use it up. Some weight loss plateaus are simply our bodies "reconfiguring" themselves, I think.
