Another month, another rounding error in weight loss. And this time it was a mere fluke that turned a gain into a loss at the last minute.
As I write this, I am fighting the flu or some flu-like virus. I called in sick and slept until noon. I am not feeling an overabundance of energy. I weighed myself at around 10 a.m., where I’d normally weight myself around 5:30 a.m. on a work day. The later weigh-ins almost always result in me weighing less.
Yesterday I was at 169.2 pounds. That would be up 1.2 pounds for the month.
But today, weighing myself later, I was at 167.6 pounds, down 0.5 pounds instead.
I remained donut-free for the month. I began running, if not more, than at least more regularly. These things were good.
But I did not resume walking as much, even with nice weather. That was bad. And I did not resist the siren song of post-dinner snacking all that often. This was worse.
I am going to vow to stay on the downward trend, however lucky I got to be down in April. But I suspect I won’t get another last-minute save again.
For the year to date I’ve gone from 167.5 to 167.6 pounds, which is about as close as you can get to unchanged as possible. If I was at my ideal weight now, I would be in an excellent position to maintain that weight. Alas.
Also my total body fat was up slightly, which is depressing, slightly.
April 1: 168.1 pounds
April 30: 167.6 pounds (down 0.5 pounds)
Year to date: From 167.5 to 167.6 pounds (up 0.1 pounds)
And the body fat:
March 1: 19.7% (33.1 pounds of fat)
April 30: 20% (33.6 pounds of fat) (up 0.5 pounds)
