Tracked Appropriately And Lost Weight As Expected

Day 487

Starting Weight: 77.7
Ending Weight: 77.2
Result: lost .5 kg (over a pound)

Including today, I have now lost 1.0 kg in the last 3 days. 2 days ago, I had a humongous loss of .8 kg. Then, I took a little step back yesterday and gained .3. Today showed an excellent drop of .5 kg.

The day started out great for my diet performance. I had only gone up 1.1 kg, from 77.7 to 78.8, at 5 in the afternoon. I notice that having a good start is what helps me have a good weight-loss day. If I have a bad start, it can be difficult sacrificing the rest of the day because I am going to always get at least a little hungry. I also tracked closely this time instead of my recent bad habit of not tracking throughout the day. Tracking can help you have a good start, as well. When I have done poorly lately, it has been when I failed to weigh in until about bedtime. By then, it is usually to late to salvage the day if you have overeaten at that point.

Tracking early in the day allows you to make adjustments. Those adjustments can be a slight sacrifice on your diet instead of having to starve the rest of the day. For example, eating slightly less for the last 2 meals is a heck of a lot easier than having to completely skip the last meal, which can result in hunger pangs and even starving.

I had another snack and was about 79.2 at 7 in the evening. At 1.5 kg, I was still below the Danger Zone mark of 1.8. From this point, it looked like I could afford to eat one more small snack. I felt that and a run of 90 minutes would help me recover from yesterday’s weight gain of .3 kg. As it turned out, I lost that .3 plus .2 kg more, finishing with a solid daily weight loss of .5 kg. That is a little more than a pound.

I did not weigh myself before sleeping this time because it was not necessary due to the fact that I was in such good shape diet wise. After being 1.5 kg over, I had a small snack before going to bed. Then, I woke up and was 78.3 kg. That was an okay overnight weight loss of about 1.0 kg.

The plan was to put in another 90-minute run, and I almost did that, finishing up 4 minutes early. It didn’t seem that important to push it because I knew that I was going to lose weight, anyway. So since I got back to the house a little early, it seemed okay to finish up at that time. At any rate, I lost roughly 1 kg and finished the day at 77.2 kg. And that was after weighing in a little early.

Tomorrow’s blog will detail an even greater day, where I actually lost .6 kg plus recovered completely from the holiday cheat days and got to a net weight loss on my 100-day test. It was all smiles after tomorrow’s
running session.
