Well, poop. Or fat, to be more precise. If February ended yesterday I would have been down for the month. Alas, it did not and my slight overindulgence yesterday resulted in SWI (Sudden Weight Increase). I was up a little less than a pound for the month, but in my defense, 0.8 pounds is a modest increase. My weight regularly shifts up and down by that amount on a nearly daily basis.
But it still means I was essentially treading water (or retaining it) for the shortened month, and the small increase of body fat was not encouraging.
I am starting to exercise more, something I intend to ramp up starting next week, assuming we are free of blizzards for the last few weeks of winter. And I’m getting better at enforcing my “no snacks after dinner” rule by drinking tea and subsequently running to the bathroom a lot.
I also remain donut-free.
For the year so far I am only up 0.4 pounds and there’s an excellent chance that could be wiped out when I step on the scale tomorrow. So while things are not moving as quickly as they could be, I still feel I am headed in the same less-fat direction.
As always, the stats:
February 1: 167.1 pounds
February 28: 167.9 pounds (up 0.8 pounds)
Year to date: From 167.5 to 167.9 pounds (up 0.4 pounds)
And the body fat:
February 1: 19.6% (32.8 pounds of fat)
February 28: 19.7% (33.1 pounds of fat) (up 0.3 pounds)
