175 pounds this AM.  I must have been a little dehydrated. I had some BBQ today, and some Mexican yesterday, and I’m drinking a ton of water now. I’m sure I’ll be up a little by the morning.  I have Thanksgiving holiday plans with family, which, as for many, involve consuming tasty foods in large quantities.  Stay tuned for the outcome.


Update 11/18 (Tues)

179.4 today.  I enjoyed some of the local culinary culture over the weekend, korean BBQ and a new bakery-cafe with delicious goods and the best coffee I have had in a long time.  Didn’t take me too far off track, I was back to my usual the next day.

Sun Nov 9 Update

Weight: 180.6 pounds

Still on track.  Recently read In Defense of Food by Michael Pollan.  Before that it was: Eat Drink and Be Healthy, What to Eat, The CR Way, and The Longevity Diet. They primed the intuition pump a bit better about what healthy eating means.  I’m making some small changes already, I’ll update the plan when I see what works.

I’ve started a new 6 week exercise cycle:  leg extension, leg curl, seated chest flyes, seated row, seated overhead press, dumbell hammer curls, triceps pushdown, crunch machine.  Not making fast progress, probably due to low calories. I thought about doing more exercises 2x/week, but since I just took out leg press for this cycle, it is less taxing systemically.  We’ll see how it goes.  I’m probably not going to go below 170 lbs., so it will be time to increase the calories soon enough.  I’m thinking I’ll start that in the New Year, after the holiday splurges.
