258 - Reached a plateau, and a new peak

At the summit of Mount Sentinel, well above the M
For the past three weeks, I've been struggling to make any further headway in terms of weight loss. I'd dropped to 253 lbs before bouncing up to 262 lbs and being around 258 lbs for a few days, despite an energy-burning trip to Lincoln a few days ago to go snowshoeing.

This morning, one of my co-workers (thanks Jonas!) called me to go hiking up the back side of Mount Sentinel. I've previously done the zig-zaggy front side from the university, but this was from the Crazy Canyon trailhead, about 3.5 miles to the summit.

If you can, try zooming in and out of the panoramic photo (link below): and scroll (pan) to the left and right.

The thing I know I need to work on next is NOT eating anything when I get home from work after midnight. It's basically a fourth meal, which I really don't need. That's one of the things I was doing when I was living in Belgrade that contributed to my weight gain there last year.

I'm also going to compile a list soon of future hiking destinations, which I will publish and distribute to my friends so that any of you/them who are inclined to do so can come and join me in an adventure. See you on the trail!
