726 days to go! So far have a calorie deficit for today but my appetite is being uncooperative. I need to find my belt and get a can of seltzer.

My cheeks were very unappreciative of my walk yesterday. By bedtime they were swollen and red from the snow-blasting.

725 days to go! Was able to create a calorie deficit for certain yesterday and should be able to today as well.

726 days to go. Had a calorie overage today- boo! Also the scale was uncooperative so no recalculation either.

Got my ancient piece of exercise equipment up an running.

726 days to go. Had another overage today. The overages today and yesterday were in part due to a bad choice at the grocery. That supply has been exhausted so tomorrow should be better.

725 days to go! Ended a 19 hour fast today and created a lovely calorie deficit.

The spin doctor is in the house. I am re-framing things. Instead of social distancing, I am cocooning. My goal is to be healthier and lighter when we all get to emerge from our current circumstances.

724 days to go. Created a calorie deficit and started a 19 hour fast this evening.

Also, my scale played music which means I am at a new low weight, unofficial of course. To be official, it must appear and be maintained across two official weekly weigh-ins on Sunday. An exciting development though because my last official weigh-in put a confirmed loss in danger.

723 days to go. Created a calorie deficit. 19 hour fast end up being a 16 hour fast.

Because last Sunday I was up a tad, I will not be able to recalculate this Sunday. New losses need to be maintained across two weigh-ins so the earliest recalculation would be April 5. Ultimately, I don't think I will have any more big downward jumps in the tally. I have adjusted the calculation to calculate the total days left based on my plan. My plan is designed to lose a half a pound a week. I feel challenged to meet that.

723 days to go. Today was a break even day as best as I can figure. Had a lot stuff that I needed to estimate how many calories in them. Also had trouble sleeping and then had a mid-night snack. For whatever reason, I felt really, really hungry.

718 days to go. I went to bed early last night and did not post as usual. Yesterday was a new low weight for me and my scale played music. This is great because I've started the month off at a loss already! I also started a fast at 7:00 pm last night. In addition, I created a larger than planned calorie deficit yesterday.

We have been walking three times a day during this event. During our longer one, I use my Nordic walking poles. It doesn't seem like they do much when I am walking. However, I can really feel a difference in my back (i.e. it is sore because of using muscles I don't usually use).

717 days to go. If I could create the same calorie deficit I did today everyday, I would be at my goal in seven months. Highly unlikely but it is fun to day dream!
