Weighing myself every day is the only way to keep myself focused on weight loss. But it also means that I see every up and every down. Like today, when I’m up almost three pounds and only two-tenths of a pound less than I was on Sunday (and up 5.2 from Monday).
I have a suspicion it’s the peanuts. I eat a lot of them, far too many really, on the weekdays and almost none on the weekends. Which might explain why I drop weight so much better on the weekends. It may also help to take them home and only have a small baggy with me at work. Keeping them at work means is is too easy to go back and get “just a bit more.”
Why do the only nuts I like–peanuts, cashews, and walnuts–have to be the ones with lots of carbs? Or is that why I like them?
I think I will take ham and cheese roll-ups for a snack today and put the peanuts away.
I did some calculations, and even with a 20% decrease in my rate of weight loss, I could be 350 by Friday (less likely now with a gain, but we’ll see), 300 by mid-October, and 250 by January. I need to do some 20% projects, which will be longer, but right now, that is amazing to me. I want to know what I will be on my birthday next year.
I also want to know what happens when I feel more comfortable exercising. Right now, with the stupid bike they have here, my thighs slam into my gut. I need to fix up my bike and start riding, and at 300, maybe even 325, I probably could.
My white underwear feels looser.
