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.

I was doing the featherweight's daily weigh in. I am considered normal weight at 142 pounds, but I feel like that I should be under 140 pounds to participate.... so I hear you shrinking.

There are 2 get me out of the 130's threads, btw. I can post links if you can't find them.

Everybody is really nice over at Feathers, though. -- I do participate the chat thread.

Please post the links, the "get me out of" threads are sooo hard to find because the search function doesn't search any of the terms. Thanks!

And you are NOT a cow. Don't you dare talk about my friend (you) that way!

This is a cow:

This is YOU:

And I am sending you some

Wow, lots of updates!! I miss a couple days and we're already on page 2 of a new thread! You all sound like you have got things in hand, even if life is getting in your ways!! Good luck to you all for your weigh ins tomorrow!! I'm going to wait til Friday and then get back to you - fingers crossed!!

Can't believe we're nearly in April! It's getting close to 6 months since I started my weight loss plan and it has really flown by, which is a good sign I guess!

Just a quick status dump for me:

Managed to eat on-plan and slept better last night, weigh-in at 143.8.

When I designed this plan to be maintenance-friendly, I wasn't thinking about making it crunch-friendly (since my strategy has been to try avoid crunches instead) but it turns out Keeping It Stupidly Simple works for both!

Didn't get to donate plasma yesterday since their rules prevented it; apparently I am donating too often. So I will go back on Saturday.

Today is day three of a three day fat fast. My ketones are inching back up to optimal ketosis levels. Not there yet. Hopefully by tomorrow morning...

Blood ketones:

3/25: .6
3/26: .7
3/27: 1.0

Goal = 1.3-3.0

Weight:

3/4: 147.0
3/6: 145.6
3/8: 145.2
3/9: 144.2
3/11: 143.8
3/12: 143.0
3/14: 141.8
3/19: 143.2
3/20: 142.0
3/21: 140.8
3/25: 140.8
3/26: 140.0
3/27: 139.6

A pound is great progress, Sum. A minor setback is nothing to beat yourself up about!

Shrinking, seems like you are really on top of your plan and it's working for you. Must be exciting to see that 3 on the scale!

Vix, glad to hear that the time on your eating plan hasn't dragged. It sounds like it's compatible with maintenance.

I'm still buried, but still eating on-plan. Everything else (exercise, chores, etc) has gone blooey. But my weigh-in is at 143.6. Another day below 144 and I'm going to move the ticker!

139.2 today. Fat fast is done! Today is an ordinary UpDay so I have a yummy menu planned. I know the weight will be back up above 140 tomorrow (always bounces up after an UpDay) but I will weigh in again Monday and I am hopeful that it will still have gone down again.

I am determined to report that I made my March goal.

Hey everyone, weigh in day for me!! I'm super happy to report I had what I would call a whoosh week for me, losing 1.5lbs since last Friday! Well, compared to the last two weeks it was a whoosh anyways as I moved down a measly 1.5 pounds from the beginning of March and then in the last week I lost another 1.5! I guess I don't have too long to go now but still, it's 8lbs and I have to be prepared that this could take me 3 months the way I'm going lately. But, it's great to be at the lower end of the 140s!!

Well done shr1nk1ng, like yoyoma says it must be a real boost to see that 3 in your scale number! The way you're going I'm sure you'll see it again on Monday!

Great news on the 1 pound loss, sum, and so close to the 130s - you'll be back down again in no time!

Move that ticker down yoyoma!!

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Vix, congrats on seeing good progress on the scale!

Sum, get back on the horse. Off days happen; we just need to make sure we get back on track.

Shrinking, you did a great job in March regardless of whether or not the scale registers a few more ounces of loss.

I'm done with one big deadline, but I've got another to work on through the weekend and when this is done, there may already be more piled up. Not to mention the backlog of chores and stuff. But, I'm still eating on-plan and down to 143.4, so I'm moving the ticker!

Yesterday, I continued to eat on-plan without any real difficulty. I did go for a walk outside with DH so my exercise wasn't rock-bottom like it was the previous couple days. Scale stayed the same at 143.4.

We have plans to eat out tonight and I'm expecting to see a bump up tomorrow.

Bump up today to 144.6, but not unexpected. Last night we ate at the Outback (pretty much one of the last places I would choose, but it was a celebration for DD). I ate everything I wanted to eat, and let's just say that I know I would gain weight pretty quickly if that were my usual daily meal.

I'm done just now with the second big deadline. Time to catch up on chores and see if I have new items on my plate today.
