Draglist's Journal, 31 Aug 16

Woke at 211.8, up .6 from yesterday. Targeting 2048 calories today to finish the month exactly on my 1671 average daily calorie target. HIIT squats tonight. Came home famished at 210.6. OK, let’s face it. This is my normal weight: 209-210. No matter what I do, that’s where we we end up. I did a review of my FitBit records since May 2014. My average weight over that entire time? 209.3. I’ll take it. If I get the balls to do it (like Ches did), I’ll adjust my goal weight to 205 instead of 200. That will allow me to stay in the blue zone at my obvious set point. How many months of a 1000 plus calorie deficit does it take for me to realize that this is it for me? Hell, I’m wearing 32 inch jeans and large t-shirts comfortably. Do I simply own this weight (which includes my considerable loose skin from my 340 lb. days)? Mini-rant over. Had a great end to the month and dead on my calorie goal. OH! Somehow, did the math wrong and ended up getting a bonus 200 calories today! A nice two tablespoons of almond butter took care of that!

Mind boggling watching you follow, almost to the calorie, your food.

It's funny... at the end of each day, I do trade off analyses on what I still get to eat and stay within the numbers. Of course, all calories are estimates (packaged or in the FS database), but it gives me a baseline to play with!

PS. That HIIT squats thing? Didn't happen... :)

Stuff happens. I have no doubt you'll make it up in the next few days.

Thanks, Kathy! I have officially upped my target weight to 205, instead of 200. I am confident I can maintain that until the end of time...

That totally makes sense Bill. To me, our goal weight or set weight is a function of our personal health - fitness goals and body type - age. Just like many other folks maintaining here on FS, you've proven to yourself over time, through steady effort, what your weight range is.

Thanks Steven. I will still aspire to the 190s but I'm happy where I am if that doesn't happen.

You're probably right about the "normal" weight for you, makes sense. You work at this as hard and steady as anyone.

Thanks, Jim!

The funny thing is, it's all about the water content in the muscle mass and bones. I'm basically 196-197 plus whatever excess water is in me! That is consistent.
