I’ve been aggressively low-carbing and appetite-suppressing since mid-January, and it has been working. I’m down about four or five notches on my belt, about 1% or 2% body-fat, and my weight is down 8 pounds from my high of 190, and my average weight (the “center point” around which it seems to fluctuate during the week) is down 5 pounds from 188.
Oh, and the cholesterol test I took on Wednesday came back at 160.
I’m feeling great.
Last night I ate out at Bangkok Grill in Orem (800 S State, on the east side of State and the south side of 800 — you REALLY need to eat there if you haven’t) with a bunch of local pros and friends. My stomach seems to be smaller than it used to be. I overate, yes (it’s still quite hard not to) but I hit the “I have overeaten” feeling far, far sooner than usual.
My goal: By the time any of you non-Utah folk actually see me again (WorldCon in August, Self-Syndication Seminar in September) I want to weigh in at a trim-no-wait-that’s-actually-svelte 160.
