March 29, 203.5

Was pleased to see the scale reduced again this a.m. to 203.5. Come to think of it, have I been absolutely on plan for several days now? I might have had a little extra fruit servings, some sugar-free gum, but I can't recall anything worse than that. That's sort of remarkable, because I'm thinking about all the little cheats that I was having before, and now I seem to be more in control again. Weird how that happens. Whether it's the result of low-glycemic, being at home all the time, or that it gets easier to say 'No' to temptation every day you go by saying 'No' to temptation.

I'm going to get to 198 real soon.

Although now it's looking like I'm back up to 1500-1600 calories at ediets. I changed my plan from 'recipe' to 'convenience' because I'm going to be busy next week, and it readjusted me to 1500-1600. I'm comfortable with it, I just wanted to see my scale going down faster, but I was nervous about 1200-1300. I was thinking maybe 1400-1500 calories. Because even when I follow the plan to the letter, it actually usually comes out to about 1700 calories. It'll be hard, but maybe I ought to try to make a few executive decisions to trim a fraction out of each meal to reduce calories a little. 198!!! 198!!! I'm coming after you!!!

In other news I may be closer to 5'10 than 5'9. Which would alter my BMI. If I really weigh 203.5, knowing the height could make the difference between me being obese or not today. If my weight were accurate, which I don't think my scale is. My weight at the Y or the doctor - it could be 10-20 pounds higher. I wonder.

Anyway - for the purposes of this journey, I'm sticking with my scale in the bathroom. But I probably shouldn't squeal too much about my bmi meaning I'm not obese anymore since I probably still am obese.
