I don't recommend the Stomach Virus Weight Loss Method, but there's no discounting its effectiveness. I'm below 270, bay-bee! 250, I'm comin' for ya!

Progreeeeesssssss!

I can't believe I was once near 330. Like, my brain just can't even process it. O.o

So I'm now exactly 50 pounds out from my target weight and moving inexorably towards it.

This is a winnable game. :)

Not a lot of progress; I just haven't had the mental bandwidth to focus on this. I'm glad to not be backsliding, but I do need to recommit and start moving forward again.

The way my BP keeps being all over the map is something I'm not thrilled with either. It seems to be related to hydration and salt intake– the dryer I am, the higher the BP– and I have been dehydrated a LOT lately, seemingly regardless of how much water I drink.

So, gonna work on it.

Last week's waistline was almost 45", and today it's 44"... I'm gonna go out on a limb and say that's margin of error both ways. Until I see a trend in any direction, I'm assuming that hasn't really changed either.

Holiday damage has not only been mitigated, but weight is at a new low (273.9, woot). Waistline nudged up a hair but it's within the margin of error for measuring tape and posture. >.>

Now that the revels are over, I should start making real progress again. :)

I regained a pound due to holidays indulgence (and being at the in-laws', where everything is pretty much a paste of salt, wheat, and sugar that's been fried in butter). I'm actually more concerned about the blood pressure, which is probably a side-effect of the salt. But I'll be back to my normal diet on the regular starting today, so this should all just be a blip.

Well it's taken me 7 months so far, but I've lost 30 pounds, roughly 1/3 of my long-term target. :) Losing another 50 pounds by April is still the plan, but right now I'm just gonna take stock of the milestone.

This is officially my lowest weight on record– my previous low being 277.7 in 2015 [1].

No wonder my clothes are like tents on me now! ;D

I'm gonna savor this moment. :) And then make getting my lowest weight on record a habit. ;)

[1] That entry actually describes my lowest as being 276.2 but without a citation and I couldn't find it. Since my scale this morning actually said 275.8, I'm still at my lowest either way!

My blood pressure seems to be connected to a random number generator. >.> It'll be great for weeks, then be crazy high for a week or two, then back to something resembling normality for a while.

My blood pressure being up today might also explain why I woke up with a headache. :P

Anyway, still bumping along the plateau. With turkey day tomorrow and the holiday season approaching generally, I'm not too worried about it. I'm gonna keep eating right and exercising, but I'm not gonna not have holiday treats, either.

My weight fluffed back up, but I lost another 1/2" off my waistline this week, go fig. Still, weight is like weather and waistline is like climate, so the general trend is good. I've definitely hit plateau territory, and I'm running out of ways to lean out my diet. From here I'm either going to have to a) crank up my exercise, or b) go on a program of intermittent fasting.

Honestly, either one is going to be very challenging to pull off, as I'm constantly skirting the edge of burnout timewise as it is... and the holidays are coming up. >.>

But I'll find a way to make it work!

My diet was not great over the weekend, and I have not been doing any intense workouts for a few weeks, so I'm not really surprised by these numbers. Frankly, my workout routine has got me bored. :P So I have to find something new to get into.

I will say, being involved with the coaching has changed my mindset about moments like this, tho. Instead of freaking out or getting upset about a big ol' failure, this is just a data point that can be addressed. "A bit off-course, helm. Correct to starboard."

'sall good. :)

Have I mentioned that calorie-counting is bullshit? ;P Staying consistently under regardless of being sick, but without exercise, my body still uses that as an excuse to go up instead of down. I mean eh, it's a pound, I'm not gonna fret about it too much.

The good news is, I'm feeling better today and the weather is due to stop sucking... maybe I can finally start going outside again!

According to my research, we've been measuring my waistline wrong, so I have rebooted that as of this week. The good news on that front is that puts my WTH ratio at 0.62, which is considerably less unhealthy than the 0.69 I thought it was. The bad news is, I don't have previous records to compare it to any more, so I don't know what my progress is there.

I'm constantly amused by MyNetDiary's shrieking "YOUR INTAKE IS BELOW YOUR BASAL METABOLIC RATE! YOU SHOULD BE LOSING 6 POUNDS A WEEK WHICH ISN'T HEALTHY, EAT! EAT! EAT!"

Well MyNetDiary, my body is too powerful to be constrained by things like "math" or "rudimentary biochemistry." I'm pretty sure I could just stop eating all together and I'd probably gain 20 pounds.

Anyway, I've been too knackered all week to do any exercise more strenuous than a half-hour walk, and even those leave me worn out. But I'm doin' 'em anyway. I'm not gonna lose progress because I got a freakin' flu shot. No.

There are 20 fewer pounds of Gneech in the world now than there were at the end of May. :) I am pleased with this. My weight is still up a little from where I wanted to be at this point, but my waistline is right where it should be, so I'll take it. :)
