This morning's weigh-in puts me squarely at 266 lbs., or 3 lbs lost this past week, which represents a 14% drop in body mass since I started this diet. Yes, I am officially 41 lbs. lighter on this November 1st than I was in July.
My BMI has slipped under 43 and I am so happy for that! Just three more points and I will no longer be classified as morbidly obese. I can't wait! Gee, less than 20 lbs to go to be there ...
Helpful things this past week: minimum water intake of 64 oz per day, and walking (good old-fashioned walking). My goal for this week will be to get in three days of exercise (of any sort), for 30 minutes each. My HDL number should be higher (ideally), and exercise controls that number. The LDL is controlled by diet, of course.
Calories today, so far: 1,565
Water today, so far: 9
And, yes, I made it through Halloween without a bite of chocolate, or ANY candy. That may well be a first in my memory.
Day 104 and happy H'ween is behind me ... onto a new month, new challenges, new goals ...
ADDENDUM: The three-pound loss brings me to 25 lbs lost in the 60-lbs-in-one-year challenge, or about 41% toward that challenge goal. The blue box (upper right) tells you how many days are left in the challenge, and my signature tells my current status in that challenge. Today, it reads -25 of -60 ... Yay!!
