Draglist's Journal, 29 Mar 14

I love it when a plan comes together! Hit 206.6 today! That is my lightest weight since early 1978 when I was 19 and working out every day as a young sailor. The 2200 calorie day yesterday gave me the energy (and the body got the ‘permission’ to use it), my light weight training last night, my daily 16:8 fast, and a solid night’s sleep set it up. And then an hour on the treadmill hit it out of the park! This largely hits my goal for March, but I will go light over the weekend and Monday to try to drop another pound for April 1. Definitely showing some loss of muscle mass (according to the Tanita scale) but that only makes me a bit more skeptical of the scale because in all modesty, the mirror is showing me good stuff these days. Thanks to all my FatSecret friends for your amazing support.

Here are the 3/29/14 Tanita Numbers (post 16:8 fast; post 855 calorie treadmill workout; still showing some overnight dehydration):

THAT'S AWESOME, @BILL! WTG! You've gotta feel like a million bucks. BTW, what's the wife say about all your progress? I bet she's at least as giddy as you.

Thanks, WholeFoodNut, Rob, Mom, and Toolman! Actually, Rob, Denise has taken the plunge herself now. She is targeting a certain number of calories per day and is doing great on it. I told her she should join up here but she hasn't done that yet. I think she wants to keep her journey 'her' thing for now (as opposed to doing it with me). Works for me. I'm happy she's doing it. I do feel great, Mom! The math does work and I had experimented around it for a few months. When I went back to the old tried and true, I started getting the results again. Thanks for all your support, WholeFoodNut and Tim! I have to say I'm pretty happy...
