No weigh-in for me today. I had a terrible night of (lack of) sleep and drank a big mug of coffee before I thought of weighing in. So, I'm just going to skip it today rather than try to adjust for the coffee weight. I haven't even gotten on the treadmill today, just taking the time to post this update then back to the grind.

The great news is that I had no trouble staying on my eating plan yesterday despite a looming deadline! If I can stay on it today with sleep deprivation added to the mix, I'm golden. It would be a huge silver lining in this temporary cloud.
Yoyoma Sorry you're not sleeping well. Hope that deadline doesn't keep you up at night any more. Congrats on staying on plan in spite of it!

Sum you can and you will overcome this temporary setback. Pretty soon we will all be in the 130's (again).

I promised myself I would start joining in more featherweights threads when I got to the 130's. I definitely don't feel like a featherweight, but that's because I'm 5'2". I won't be out of an "overweight" BMI until my weight is at 135. And even then I'll be at the upper end of "normal", definitely not a featherweight. Everyone keeps telling me my goal is too low, but I set it at 115, which is right smack in the middle of my healthy BMI range for my height. I plan to end up at about 120 after I go on a rigorous weightlifting/muscle building program.


Broke my mini-stall! My trusty fat fast got me back on track again. Works every time! Even though on a fat fast my overall calories are higher than any other time I still lose ~ a pound overnight when I do a fat fast. Keto dieting is like magic!

I am still not back in ketosis (0.7 on the blood ketone monitor) so today will have to be another fat fast day. That means I need to buy more Kerrygold butter and some more macadamia nuts.

I have a crazy busy day planned, including: Spanish class, plasma donation, lunch with girlfriends, driving the afternoon carpool, taking DD to her hair appointment, grocery store, farmer's market, and then ladies' Bible study tonight. Sheesh! I don't see how I am going to have any time to eat ANYTHING. I think I might need to cancel the lunch. I just don't see myself going out to lunch right after a plasma donation; I always feel so weak afterwards.
