I'm down to 210lbs, why am I not celebrating?

I should be celebrating, but it's not actually good news.

This is for me a near-record low weight of 210 lbs. The only time in the last 25 years that I've been at or below 210 lbs was when I was training 3 days a week with a professional trainer, trying desperately to compete with Elena Myers for a mini-bike championship. She won the championship and went on to become the first woman to win an AMA (national, televised) race. I've been bouncing around between 220lbs and 240lbs ever since.

So why is this bad? It's not because of my diet. We ate moderately well in Hawaii but way too many sweets, and frankly right now just walking is exercise for me. So how do you lose almost a pound a day with an average 2,000 steps a day, no other exercise and a vacation diet?

Massive muscle atrophy, that's how. So this is weight that I'll be wanting to get back.
