So, this morning I weighed in at 180.4 lb, a drop of 1.6 lb this week for a total of 36.6 lb lost this year.
Good stuff! And so close to the 170s!
Things have been going smoothly since I became more conservative about my BMR (switching from "moderately active" to "sedentary" and seeing my daily calorie range drop quite a bit and unhooking my nutrition and fitness trackers). I am not starving all the time, as I feared, but I do need to plan out my meals and snacks better so that I always have something appropriate post-workout.
