Ridin’ off into the sunset

Well I (unofficially) hit the 280’s for the first time this morning. Saw another big decrease over yesterday morning’s weight and was struggling with those end of the day hungries again yesterday. Looking at my weight loss patterns I will probably go back up again tomorrow then decrease back to where I am today over Sunday/Monday.

I’m finding tracking my loss to be really helpful. I’m starting to see patterns so when my weight goes up on some days I know it’s nothing to worry about, it’s just how it works for me.

When I woke up this morning my “hungries” from yesterday were gone so I’m thinking there’s not much reason to adjust my calories at this point. I’m at 1703 calories for today so we’ll see how that goes for a while longer.

I have to say I really like decreasing my calories as my weight decreases which The Daily Plate does automatically for me. If I had stayed at 1900 calories (where I started) I would have seen weight loss slow down and to jump from 1900 to 1700 would have been a bit of a shock. Now 1900 seems like a lot of calories and 1700 seems normal.

Well we’ll see how things go this weekend and what my official weigh in on Monday says.

    That is so smart of you to track the way that you do. You can then see a pattern that might have more to do with hormones etc…. then weight. You are doing well keep it up. Have a nice weekend.
