Okay, I figured it out....the equation of 1.25 pounds to a kg, is 0.56699. If that helps you at all. And thank you for your sweet words of encouragement, so kind of you.
Oh yeah I forgot I hadn't introduced myself yet Was just eager to get on board with my encouragement! Over here lots of people aim for 1kg per week, so just over half a kilo is a great goal

Your (and your friend's) story (although terribly sad ) is inspirational, and I just had to offer my support and be here see you enjoying your reward

Totally normal to plateau in weight loss...it can go on for quite a while, too. Just keep pushing through and eventually you will see result again.

Well your support is totally welcomed, as are you. I can't wait to see what I look like for my trip!! Am I to call you Zanzibar, or do I get the honor of calling you by your first name?

This is what everyone keeps telling me and you know it starting out. It's just frustrating, I do notice inches coming off during that time so there's at least that. Thank you for your support Mark, means a lot.

Michele!! I wondered where you've been! Good to see you again. You didn't miss a lot, it's a slow moving PTR. But that's how I wanted it, that way it won't feel like it's a job to write/read it. At least I hope that's how it's perceived.

Good, I hope you liked your well color cordinated envelope, stamp and address label. I'm such a dork that way.

And no Jennifer, you aren't behind. I'm a slow mover on this PTR. I didn't want it to be a last minute whirl-wind of a report. Planning all that goes into my trips it's usually up to the last couple of weeks, so a PTR being started out weeks before would not have been good for me. I like this to be timed out well. Not to mention, part of this is my weight loss journey, can't rush that....as much as I'd like to.

My trip report is almost stagnate. We have about two and a half months until the trip and I feel like I have done all that I can for right now. That and the recent stress. I considered cancelling the trip for awhile. I decided that we may need the happiness of a trip.

Ooooh! I don't want you to cancel your trip. You have to go, you probably need to go.

Thank you for reading along Michele.

Oh don't ask! This has been a nightmare. He saw his Dr yesterday and had blood drawn. She calls him today and the first thing she says is "you aren't having chest pains or erratic heartbeats are you?" His potassium levels were high in the last two blood test and they were higher. He was told it could be dehydration, kidney problems, a possible heart attack.

She tells him no strenuous exercise(he was getting ready to go climb mountains on his bicycle), watch his potassium intake and keep hydrated. Go and get blood drawn on Saturday or Sunday. We went to Costco and he had no energy. About 4:30 he was having an erratic heartbeat and we decided to go to the ER. It isn't his heart thank God. But no one knows what it is. So Tuesday we go back to his regular Dr and we go from there.

I bet you're sorry you asked now, huh?

Oooh Michele, I'm not sorry I asked at all, and I'm so sorry! This must be maddening to not know what the heck is going on. I will certainly be praying for him and you! I can't imagine what it would be like to have to deal with the unknown and be told we don't know what to tell you. Hopefully his doctor will figure it out. In the mean time I'm lifting y'all up. Hang tough, girl.

I'm hanging as tough as I can. I am exhausted and therefor I am getting a cold. I don't do well with colds. I appreciate the prayers. It has been crazy. Hence my eating has been bad.
