Attempt 105, Week 4

The liquid fast last Monday went well until about eleven in the morning when I decided I wanted a banana. Then an apple. Then an entire box of Raisin Bran and twelve bagels. Okay, I made up those last two. The fast didn’t last but I did pretty much get back on track with the eating.

Graph: Attempt 105, Week 4

Every day but Thursday came in below two thousand calories. Heck, Wednesday was under fifteen hundred. My only explanation for that is I went to bed for the day at ten in the morning.

Week Four
Starting Weight 224.0
Current Weight 218.1
Change from Last Week +0.7
Lost So Far 5.9
Pounds To Go 19.1

Ironic that for a week with such a nice downward slope, my weight actually went up seven tenths of a pound. Actually, that’s not irony. That’s just math. And I still think it’s a good way to report progress. The trick now is to keep that downward trend going and unfortunately I don’t have a good track record there. However, I have a plan. Any time I grab something to eat that I shouldn’t be eating, I’m going to hire a raven to help me deal with it. I’ll be fit as a wallaby in no time.

I’m trying to figure out the two red lines. Are they both for your weight? If so, why two? I like your raven plan. 🙂

    Oh yeah. I didn’t explicitly mention that this week. It’s a thing I do, where I use lighter lines of the same color to represent previous week(s).

    This post shows an example of this near the bottom:

    Ah, that takes me back. Back when I was 216.

    Oh . . . wait.

I always find liquid fasting a great way to get back on track… or a great way to eat way too much because I get too hungry. In any case, it seems you went the right direction and your past experience should show you that it really is just math. And a waiting game.
