July was like June in reverse. Instead of being up 2.6 pounds, I was down 2.6 pounds. My body fat also dropped by half a percent and actual fat itself by half a pound. I am up three pounds on the year, but that’s down from a peak of nearly six pounds.
I am still fat.
But all signs are trending in a positive direction now and I’ve made real progress on curbing ye olde snacking, so I am reasonably confident the weight loss will continue.
I’m not going to aim for anything crazy like dropping below 170 by the end of August, but at least such a goal is no longer implausible.
July 1: 177.4 pounds
July 31: 174.8 pounds (down 2.6 pounds)
Year to date: From 171.8 to 174.8 pounds (up 3 pounds)
And the body fat:
July 1: 23.4% (41.5 pounds of fat)
July 31: 23.1% (40.5 pounds of fat) down 0.5 pounds)
