OK, not going to hold back here. This was a great Great GREAT week for me on the weight front. I went from 225.4 to .......... (wait for it)... 223.2!!! I have been stuck at 225/226 for a while now. It's good to be down a pound or two. I am positively giddy.
Seriously, sincerest thanks to everyone who responded to my last blog entry and left comments/goodies on my page. Hugs and kisses to all of you (internet-speak translation H&K 2 4ll y4ll lol/rotfl(This has been a weird decade from a communications perspective.))
"How did I do it?" you may ask (or may not ask. If you didn't ask and don't want to know, just skip to the next paragraph. I won't be offended ). Basically, I really tracked my calories throughout the day and planned accordingly. If there was a craving I had for a more calorie intense food, I reduced elsewhere.
I know that the site has a tracking tool. I will try to set up some of my foods in it over the next couple of weeks. For now, I want to continue trying to stay between 2700 and 3000 calories per day, stabilizing my eating pattern/calorie distribution throughout the day. I will start tapering when the weight loss stops.
Now that I have a dark brown background trim (see previous blog entry), my next short-term goal is 218/219. I've been stuck above 220 for a while now. Before I went up to 226, I was stuck at 222/223. It was really frustrating. There was one week where I fell to 219, but immediately went back up above 220. I really don't consider myself to be "below" a multiple-of-5 weight unless I can sustain for at least 3 weeks. That's just me though.
Bottom line, I want to be a 99 kg weakling .
Don't tell the Rice Crispies I said so.
