My 6-month target is 220 which is 0.6 lbs per week. The idea here is everything I take off never comes back, so spurts by definition are meaningless, it's the mean that counts. Hockey season I'm just going to try to hold the line -- between holidays and trips and birthdays and such I'l be very happy to still be at 220 next April. Then Phase II and a target of 205 by November 2020.

    That's The Plan. If things go a little better maybe I'll make it under 200 by Election Day, and then I can vote D with a clear conscience. (I'm voting in anyway; no worries.)
    Yeah, my comment was in jest, except that your posts do make me hungry. But I'm only an hour behind so I'm sure I'll survive.

    The first 10 pounds are always the easiest. I've frequently told my wife that if I could just figure out a diet where you start, you lose that first ten pounds right away, then you stop for a period of time without gaining the weight back, then rinse and repeat a few times, I'll pretty much be canonized as a hero.

    Personally, though, I wish you'd hold off posting this for another hour or two each day. I'm in the Central Time Zone and I always get hungry when I read your posts.

    Yeah, I'm fine with it. Always have been.

    I'm not hungry at all in the mornings; when I eat at all it's to ensure I don't get a headache because that can spoil the whole day.

    This is why I just tend to skip breakfast (or if it's the weekend I just have a really late breakfast/brunch and eat egg scramble w/ hash browns).

    Game of thrones Sunday’s with my friends are nearly over, thankfully.
    I did manage to cook meals to cover M-W before I head to DC.

    We always do takeout food for Sunday’s to watch the show so we had chipotle with a Mexican coke, followed by a small blizzard. Coming off a sugar high.

    Something tells me this is too fast.

    I'm not hungry but despite a lot of sleep I am low energy.
    You've started cutting your caloric intake. Anytime you do that, your body will feel a sluggish until it accepts the new norm. It's the same as those people who go on Ketogenic or other low-carb diets. They all suffer the [insert diet name] flu.

    That's good to hear, but I'm pretty sure the Jacobins will get me at my first, "well, actually..."

    I figure I'm good for about the first 6 months of The Terror until they decide the intellectuals are counter-revolutionary because we're not applauding every execution wildly. That's usually how it goes.
