Interesting week this week – as discussed yesterday, I hit a week where the hunger, it is real and all consuming.
Current Weight: 313.0 lbs
Weekly Gain / (Loss): (-0.4) lbs
Total Gain / (Loss): (-10.0) lbs
Weekly Average: (-1.4) lbs
Added the weekly average in there, because its important – and doubly so in weeks where I was successful but maybe not quite as successful as I would have liked. 0.5 – 1.0 pounds per week is the absolute best pace – people that lose weight at that pace are just as likely to lose as much weight as those that go faster, and are significantly more likely to maintain their weight loss. This is just a good, healthy way to do it.
And so, on a week when I lose less than a pound because I can’t keep from putting anything (everything!) edible into my unhinged yap … it helps to know that my weekly average of losing about a pound and a half a week is right about, or even slightly above, where I need to be. These things also don’t move on a straight line, and as long as I’m doing what I need to do to keep the calories down, and I’m exercising at the consistent rates I intend to – losing anything is a win.
So – another win! Ten pounds down! Onward!
