Stop it now!!

Thursday, October 27, 2011

Ok, in the last 6 months I have lost 16 lbs and reclaimed my life in so many ways. I have another 10 lbs to go, and I am willing to be patient. It is coming off really slowly, but that's ok. For the most part. But when I recently rode 60 miles on a damn bicycle....that's 4 and a half hours in a bike seat...and instead of losing a lb or two, GAINED two lbs....I got pissed. Have not exercised since (one week) and have been eating horrible. As a result, I have now gained a total of four lbs. So ok, I am done acting out. I am still pissed off but I am headed to the gym to work out my frustration there. And I am going to load up on fruit and veggies and healthy stuff on the way home, so I will resume better eating habits. Sometimes I hate doing the right thing. But I refuse to undo all my hard, slooooow work in a matter of weeks. So, here I go, back on track. Hrumph. emoticon

    If there's one thing I've learned in losing 110+ pounds it's that weigh-ins can often be misleading. Yet, I weigh myself every day.

    How do I cope?:

    First, I realize that weight loss is a stochastic process. On average you will lose weight, if you eat fewer calories and "burn" more calories. However, other factors play a role:

    * salt (NaCl) intake
    * potassium intake
    * time since voiding
    * time since evacuation
    * plateaus requiring qualitative and quantitative change in nutrition, and/or exercise
    * hormonal rhythms
    * wrong assumptions about quantity of food, or calories per unit of quantity
    * whole bunch of things not ever to be known by me, you, or medical science

    Second, I rely on moving averages of weight loss. How much have I lost, per week, in the last 5 weeks? The last 9 weeks? The last 17 weeks? Since I started?

    Third, when losses stall beyond five weeks, I (a) start changing things (kinds of food I eat and kinds of exercises I do), looking for a cure, and (b) get more serious about measuring inputs, quantities of food, and outputs, minutes and degree of exercise.

    You're already succeeding. Just keep after it. emoticon
