Down by 10

Today I weighed in at 182, which is down 10lbs from my lifetime high in December (aaaand again in mid-January, when I decided to start really TRYING to diet.)

The low-carbing is working. So of course I celebrated today by pigging out on Thai food — Tom Ka Gai soup, Masaman curry, and a bowl of sticky rice the size of my head.

I put on four pounds of FOOD in one day. Yum! But it filled me so full I didn’t eat much of anything else all day long (light breakfast, Thai lunch of doom, low-carb snack at dinner).

Oh, wait… there was that donut. The cutting board was the biggest waste of time — I decided that I was only going to have HALF a donut… at a time, it turned out. But that was right after the Thai food, and counts as part of the same pig-out.

Anyway, I’m back on the wagon now. Here’s to the next 10!

    1. Well… you have to look closely to see it. I haven’t exercised much with the smoggy air — breathing that deeply was an invitation to an asthma episode and the loss of a productive day.

      Now that the air filter is in place I’m doing calisthenics in the morning for about 5 minutes, and working my way up to a serious regimen of the stuff. I can still bang out thirty or forty push-ups with ease, but I want to be able to bang out around 300.

      Clean air is helping.

  1. Congrats! Keep up the good work. I was down 6 (since Jan 1) with today’s weigh in. I think my Chai tea habit is working as an appetite suppressant.
