I actually lost 3 pounds! I hiked an hour each morning while staying with my parents. It also helps that they eat extremely healthy, so not much sugary goods around to munch on!

I gained 2.25 pounds, but my weight can fluctuate 3 pounds in either direction anyway, so I'm not worried about it.

I know that had to be good...were you hiking on trails or just 'in general'?

They live in the foothills of San Jose, so I hiked all around their neighborhood. Paved streets since they live in a posh retirement community! But still hiking to me since I live in a very flat area and don't get to hike at all.

I went up to the very top and sat for a few minutes admiring the view. On a clear day you can see all the way to San Francisco! (I'm homesick already, can you tell!!?)

I maintained....and maintained.....and maintained some more! I think I'm at one of those dreaded plateaus, the scale has been stuck at 130 for almost 2 months! Oh well, I guess I just have to keep on track in order to lose my last 10 or so by Spring (fingers crossed). Good luck to everyone!

Change your exercise program to jumpstart your metabolism. After your body performs the same routine day in and day out for months on end, your muscles will adapt and only use the minimum amount of energy required to perform the task. Throw them a curve (pun intended) and try circuit training for a month or two.

I am having the opposite problem with a friend and with my mom. I, personally have lost my sense of smell, which goes a long way. So I'm trying to convince people to eat more, and eat more nutritionally. Roll of eyes. After spending much of my life trying to lose weight, and trying to help Mom lose weight, now I'm trying to find ways to get them to gain weight. I remember Mom saying she hated the fact that she loved food. My friend is the same. Now I'm urging high-calorie, high nutrition food on them.

It is funny that I stepped on a scale for the first time in a long, long time, and lost quite a bit of weight. Because I am tall and large boned, it has gone un-noticed. And since my waist is the same size (must have lost it from the derriere), I didn't notice the loss. My husband and I have weighed about the same for most of our lives. We always joke about it. He or I gain or lose, then the other one has to to balance the scales.
