S/C/G: 174.5/157.2/149 for now

Height: 5'7.5"


One of the many nice things about calorie counting is the company! OK, I do agree with Silverbirch - it is cumbersome and somewhat annoying. Fortunately over the last four years I've done it multiple times, so my LoseIt database has everything in it already. I was chuckling a little when I opened it last night ... they have upgraded it and it looks quite a bit different. What is funny is that you can now see a "lifetime" graph of your weight. I clearly have a setpoint right here where I am now, at 153-154. I get to 156, decide to get tough, lose down to about 148-149, and then slowly meander right back up to 153. Let's tilt at that windmill one more time! It tells me I can have 1736 per day to lose 1/2# a week, and that I'll be "done" (ha) on May 17, my birthday. Ladies and gents, I have a plan.

Trying not to take the weather personally, but 3 of the last 3 available practice times this past week have been under "winter weather advisories" or "special weather statements." Much as I want to swim, it's a 20 minute drive on some historically hazardous roads.

In the spirit of going cold turkey ... I am saying farewell to chips, pretzels, and crackers. Day 1 in process.

I am brainificating on how close "streak" is to "steak".
