Let’s start with the bad news: I was up 0.9 pounds for the month, due to an uptick in my weight over the last week. I was sick with The World’s Worst Cold to start the month, but took to the “feed a cold” school of self-medication, so didn’t shed the pounds as often happens when an illness strikes.
On the plus side, my trend for the month was generally downward. Snacking was down, activity was marginally up (I actually went for a run) and the plan for June is regular outdoor activity, weather-permitting (save for running, which I will do regardless of the weather, unless the weather includes forest fires, bears or hail).
I remained donut-free again.
I didn’t buy another one of those Starbucks cookies that apparently has 570 (!) calories. I have erased from my mind how yummy they are. Mostly.
Perhaps best of all, my body fat seems to be under control again, meaning my diet has probably improved, even if only by a smidgen.
I am going to predict actual weight loss again for June and not be discouraged, just like I’m going to wear sleeveless shirts and not get sunburnt.
We’ll see how skinny/tanned I am in a month.
May 1: 167.8 pounds
May 31: 168.7 pounds (down 0.5 pounds)
Year to date: From 167.5 to 168.7 pounds (up 1.2 pounds)
And the body fat:
May 1: 19.7% (33.1 pounds of fat)
May 31: 19.7% (33 pounds of fat) (down 0.1 pounds)
