Week...oh geez I've lost track

While reading my blog today I realized I had not composed a single word about how the medical study is pushing along. It's been a while.  Not much has changed, it is still stable and steady.
I've hit a bit of a plateau, which results in mild frustration, but mostly a desire to push past it. As part of that I'm reflecting back to the photos that keep me going.  What I mean by plateau is that instead of losing 2 plus pounds per week, it is .5 - 1 pound per week.  Not nearly as easily coming off as before.

Though I began the study just before Labor Day, I began the "paperwork" portion in June. As I have mentioned before the screening process was rather strenuous as your medical history/condition is gone through with a fine tooth comb.  That part was not so desirable, it HAS obviously turned out to be worth it.

Here is a little photo tour of the 3 months leading up to the study...

I've only put a dent in my overall goal, but it is 43 pounds in the right direction.  

My final tests were scheduled last week at my weekly weigh in.  March 16 and 18 I will have two separate sets of blood work to complete my 6 month commitment towards (sci-fimusic...dum,dum,dum) SCIENCE

What happens after March 18 will be the real challenge.  Ladies and gentleman, prepare to start your engines!
