Right, another day - now the 18th frickin' day - with no weight loss. I AM SO FUCKIN' SICK OF NOTHING HAPPENING! There. I feel better now.
Today, I will up my calories, and see if that changes anything. I have been going at 1700 for so long now, I wonder if I am a tad too low. I will recalculate and see what happens. Hopefully this will push me a little forward. I hate changing what has worked for me for so long, and done me so much good, but I also read in the forums that my body can get lulled into "false security mode" and think that all is right and peachy, and that this will sometime stop weight loss. I am reading about spike days (something I am NOT comfortable with - to me that equals losing control) and what have you.
I think I will start with re-calculating my RDI, and not cut off as much. That's a place I can relate to. This is what I'll do.
Life is good.

I feel your frustration!~ now that you have had huge success with the most recent 11lb loss, do you think the "spike" was really the key>?

@Sarahduke: It's really hard to tell. The streak of massive weight loss days started the day BEFORE I had the spike day. This week, I gained a lot after the spike day (which is obviously to be expected). But I am sure it didn't hurt to do it, and I think it mentally puts a few things in perspective for me. I get to eat "all I want" and I realize that I really don't enjoy doing that any longer. So, if the spike doesn't do anything else for (though I think it will), then at least it will make me appreciate eating a lower amount of calories on a daily basis. :)
