I’ve skipped a day – 24 – because I got some sort of stomach virus that laid me low for the entire day – and I didn’t keep track of what I ate the previous day. I recall it being the typical – mostly good, with some wine and junk in the evening. I didn’t weight myself, so nothing to report here.
The next day was: sleep til noon after barely being able to pull myself out of bed. Had 2 hamburgers with cheese wrapped in lettuce.
Dinner was some Brussels sprouts with bacon, topped with some sour cream – and some slices of fried pork chop. A little later, a grilled cheese on low carb bread.
The weight was 207.8 – up a lb. from 2 days ago, and 6.2 down from the start.
And I’ve just gotten my yearly update letter from the National Weight Control Registry – this is the study on long-term weight loss I’m part of.
While I would have lover to report a lower weight to them, I’m about 8 lbs. lighter this year than last.
Or maybe a few lbs. more – I just checked my posting from last year, which doesn’t match what I remember. Maybe at the exact time of the post, I had peeled off a few more lbs.? Maybe. I do remember being 215 on Jan 1, 2008.
Even if I didn’t lose another lb. – and kept at this weight until September 09, I would have kept 60 lbs. off for 5 years, which used to be considered nearly impossible at 95% unlikely.
Good news is that the NWCR folks sent me a study that said the odds stated above were based on one bad study – and the truth is that it is only 80% unlikely.
