The plateau has been conquered!

So my recent post about plateaus keeping me down?  Not so much anymore.  I busted through that bad boy finally... right at Thanksgiving, which is so random!  And, I'm steadily losing weight again.  About 1-2 pounds a week, without much on the exercise front.  Again I wonder to myself how much weight I would have lost had I been pumpin' iron, running around the neighborhood or hittin' an eliptical machine!
