So the week before last and this week were both pretty hectic. Out a lot in the evenings. Ate out more than I have these past couple of months.
Because I'm so close to my weight goal, but still a good distance away from my bodyfat percentage goal, I've been upping the ante ST-wise.
I'm in a plum position in that the way I'm eating pretty much nixes any major weight gains. If I do start gaining slightly, as I did last week, I just go back to eating the same 10-15 foods a lot, as I did this week. The sugar cravings go down, the water retention stops, the weight comes off.
I'm finally starting to find how to off-set the hungries. Picture those two nephews in high-school/college who are into sports at the Thanksgiving dinner table. You wonder how they are under 300 pounds given how they eat. That's kind of me now.
08.31: (198.4@22) Below 200!!!!
- Down 2 pounds
- Body fat percentage starting to reflect new class I've been taking (will blog about it soon)
- 2 pounds away from my weight goal!
I think that it will take me about 8 weeks to get to 195. I've been losing weight at a rate of .8 pounds a week (2 weeks). I will almost indubitably hit a plateau at around 195.8 (3 weeks). There will be three weeks where my basic eating will slow down the actual numbers (Like the previous two weeks). That's 8 weeks. It's my best guess anyway.
I am not sabotaging my efforts or deliberately slowing them down. Burning fat and building muscle is really the main event in my life at this point.
That being said, I hope by the weekend before Thanksgiving to be at or below 195. Could be sooner could be later. Would be even happier if I could get a body fat reading of 19% or 20%.
