Even though I am down for the month, the reality is my weight was pretty much unchanged for the last 30 days or so.
I started the month unusually high (178.9 pounds), which made the bar for losing weigh correspondingly low. In reality, I hovered at or just above 178 pounds for pretty much the entire month, dipping slightly below on just a few days.
Clearly my restrained snacking has not worked as well as I’d have liked. It also occasionally hasn’t been as restrained as it could be. But I have avoided the following in the past month:
- Pop Tarts
- Entire cakes or even partial cakes
I must work harder on keeping the snacking down, though, plus some daily exercise might help to goose my body toward shedding some fat, or at least gaining a little more muscle. Or something.
Anyway, it could have been better, but it also could have been worse, so I will take this month as the wash it was and try to do better in April, no foolin’.
March 1: 178.9 pounds March 31: 178.2 pounds (down 0.7 pounds) Year to date: From 174.2 to 178.2 pounds (up 4 pounds) And the body fat (now year to date rather than just the past month): January 1: 22.4% (39.1 pounds of fat) March 31: 23.7% (42.3 pounds of fat) (up 3.2 pounds)
