Default The benefits of tracking

Really had to swallow hard on the scale today ~ a bounceback from 183.1 to 184.2! Wow, talk about no fair!

However, I looked back and it's still
half a pound lost over the week,
2.2lbs lost over 2 weeks
5.1lbs lost over 3 weeks
5.6lbs lost over 4 weeks ~ see, that was another pauselet
9.3lbs lost over 5 weeks

1.86lbs a week. Not speedy but if I could keep it up, I'd be another 33lbs off by my Israel trip in January. 149lbs. Not skinny but not bad.

My interim interim goal was to be 181 by September 19th. 3lbs to go. Just, I could just, just, just do it. Onwards.

You are doing great, Rosinante. Keep plodding (except you know that I think you are flying )

I would love to have your 1.86 pound per week average!

Congratulations, and I hope you meet your goal for your trip!
I attempt an arduous task; but there is no worth in that which is not a difficult achievement.

I agree - tracking is the best! It's always interesting to see the same trends through the months.

And 1.86 a week is pretty good!
235 to 215 - Calorie Counting (app. 3 months)
215 - 190 - No counting, but attempting a balanced diet (app. 1 year)
190 - 172- Paleo! (began 3/23/13)

I, too, like the perspective that tracking gives me. You're doing great -- slow and steady wins the race!
