I can't remember if it was .7 or .3 so i am going with .3 lol!

Eating out isn't the devil, all the sodium that causes bloat is! But as long as I eat OP and don't give into the carbs it flushes off pretty fast. I had alcohol last night and a largish cookie yesterday afternoon so I am not sure if I bumped out of ketosis. The alcohol was flavored rum because I don't have any unflavored at the moment (must buy asap!!) so it was 2g per shot... ooops, of course I googled it AFTER I made my drink and by then I decided I didn't care so my weight may play about for a couple days.

Welcome Satine & waving hi to everyone

Had a nice move on the scale this weekend (thanks to Lulu and her idea for a fat fast on the "anything" challenge). I was due for a whoosh and boy did I get one. My body responds really well to fat fasts, something I should probably remember - I do a couple of days of fat fast every few months (last time was in January) and it always knocks several pounds off quickly for me.

So, I'm feeling much better about this goal today...

My major commitments :

- weigh in daily (I already do this)
- step count over 10,000 at least 1 day a week
- count calories/carbs at least 2 days a week
- no dairy other than grass fed butter

SW : 189.0
CW : 181.4 (-7.6)
GW : 179.0 (and this will put me out of OBESE & merely "Overweight" per BMI

Daily weights :
186.8 Apr 22
188.2 Apr 23
188.4 Apr 24
186.8 Apr 25
186.2 Apr 26
185.4 Apr 27 (lowest weight since my wedding in 2007)
185.8 Apr 28
185.0 Apr 29
185.6 Apr 30
186.4 May 1
185.4 May 2
187.2 May 3
187.2 May 4
185.4 May 5
186.0 May 6
186.2 May 7
187.0 May 8
DNW May 9 - Bilbao
187.8 May 10 - Bilbao
188.4 May 11 - Bilbao & pizza
188.8 May 12 - back on track
189.2 May 13
187.4 May 14
186.6 May 15
188.2 May 16
189.0 May 17
187.0 May 18
187.4 May 19 --> Began tight refocus effort (careful food journal, etc)
187.4 May 20
187.0 May 21
187.8 May 22
185.8 May 23

Wow, all of you have great losses ! Congrats ...I lost another 2.6 lbs last week but then sort of went off plan on Monday night ( cookies, pizza, soda, etc ) ...but I got right up yesterday morning and went right back into induction, hoping to get back into fat burning by end of week.

I honestly cannot believe that I'm so close to being under 200 ...at 232 when I started it seemed so far away but now it seems like it can happen, lol...my next big goal will be to get into the 180's, which I haven't seen in 10 years...

Have a great day everyone !!
