It's been a month since my last post. Computer problems plus 8 well-loved family in the house (both grandfathers here, one for the summer, one for 2 weeks, brother for the weekend) and trying to do right by 3 kids over a busy summer = no damn time. I am sure you can all relate. I notice the blogging moms with kids at home get a little more reticent over the summer.

My bullet-style update:

1. Weight is stable (yay!)
2. Lots of informal exercise (powerwashing, Hershey Park) but not much formal (sniff, no Zumba)
3. It is interesting that my body seems so far to be happy to stay at this weight, and even when things get crazy I don't have that much trouble staying stable. So that's one vote for "settling point" versus "setpoint," bearing in mind that point whether set or settled is not that low.
4. May have lost some muscle. Afraid to use my Omron till I do a bit at the gym.
5. Still fighting the good fight and hope you are doing the same!


  1. I am glad to see all is well Larkspur!

    Thanks for the comment on my blog tonight. To answer your question - generally, yes, I think I am taking care of myself, with some caveats. I am sleeping less and exercising less consistently, neither of which are ideal.

  2. Maintenance can be a really good thing, even if it is higher than what you might want. It is way better than the alternative! :D

  3. Good for you for not going the wrong direction. Sometimes, 'treading water' is all we've got. I know you'll be glad to get 'back in the swim' again. :)

  4. amen to what cammy said about the treading of water.
    its a good thing sometimes.


  5. Glad to see all is well and ditto to Lori and Cammy's comments. :)

    Thanks for checking in on me as well. Maintaining over summer may be the ideal that I wasn't planning on having as well.

  6. I think I lost muscle, as well.

    It sounds like you are having a great summer making lots of good memories for family. I'm not sure if all members of my family can say the same: my husband signed Marie up for Irish-dancing lessons. The studio had a two-for-one special, so he signed up our son (10), too. :) Now I have him in soccer -- I think the jigs and reels did some good for his soccer moves. LOL
