Current Weight: 375.6 lbs ( -64.4 lbs )
I am down .6 pounds from yesterday. I think the days of big number losses are behind me, at this point. I now know why all diets tell you you can “lose 15 pounds in your first two weeks.” That part is easy, but I think it sets people up for disappointment. Now I am at the point where it is probably just a slow and steady weight loss, even at ~1600 calories. I will see how tomorrow goes, but right now, I expect to keep on this calorie level, for a few more weeks. I want to get an idea about the numbers, and then up the calories to ~2000 or so.

I weighed in after I got out of the shower, and was a little disappointed to see a .6 pound loss over yesterday. I was hoping it would be a bigger number, just based on my past performance. No big deal, we are still trending downward.
I made the walk in to work this morning, without any trouble. I think this is the first time I have gotten in 5 full days of walking. Weather or injuries have gotten in the way previously. I am pretty proud of that, and am excited to keep up the trend.
I got to work and cooked my usual breakfast. I had my omelette, a protein shake, and an avocado. I snacked on snap peas while I cooked up the omelette. I was pretty hungry this morning, with noticeable tummy rumblings. I am hoping that is a good sign. Hunger is fat leaving the body, I always say. I don’t always say that, but sometimes I do.
The afternoon went pretty good. It was a slow day, as Sundays usually are. I got distracted watching YouTube cat videos, and neglected to eat lunch. It wasn’t intentional, I swear. I just looked at the clock, and noticed it was like 3:00pm. I didn’t want to eat at 3:00pm, becuase then I would feel all full and jiggly, on the walk to my car.
The walk back went great. I probably had less energy than usual, because I missed lunch, but I made it back.
I got home and cooked my steak. I altered the recipe, and it turned out awesome.
I made the mistake of getting into a couple bags of Doritos Cool Ranch chips. If we look back, I can tell you it was because I got home at like 5:00pm, which is way earlier than my usual time. So I cooked, and ate dinner earlier. Then I got hungry at like 7:00pm, and went looking for a snack. Missing lunch probably put me in a huge deficit, and I was hungrier than usual. I could have taken steps to prevent this, but I didn’t. For the next couple of weeks, I will have to watch out on Sundays, as they seem to be my trigger days. I will probably set an alarm for Sunday to remind me to eat lunch.
