Holding steady. That makes 5 consecutive weigh-ins, from 9/1 through 9/29, under 190 . . . a full month at or near my target weight according to my original goals (back when I started this in January 2011). While I’d still like to lose fat, this is what is known colloquially as “not bad at all.” I never thought I’d see the day when I could reasonably expect my “default” weight to be in this range.
Also, the +0.6 pound increase this week was evenly split between fat and lean mass. While measurement errors make such small changes essentially moot, I’ll still take it as an encouraging sign. =)
Food Tracking. This time I had a decent work week surrounded by extra-large Free Days.

Review. About the same overall, with a better workweek and higher Sunday and Saturday numbers. So far, as seen up top, I’m still holding steady but I think it may have to alter my “Free Weekends” approach. I have much to ponder as this is just a vague feeling rather than something based on evidence/data.
This Week. Today is my sister’s birthday. I plan to fast all day (as is normal on Monday’s after a Free Weekend) but we’ll see how well I manage to resist the food at her party tonight.
Tomorrow is FAIR DAY! Fried foods will perish in droves! Bacon cinnamon rolls . . . Fletcher’s corny dogs . . . fried Samoas . . . fried tres leches cake . . . To counter this additional, mid-week Free Day, I will fast all day Wednesday, just like I am today.
So this week will end up with 3 Free Days (Su, T, Sa), 2 full-fasting days (M, W), and 2 20-hour fasting days (R, F). I have no idea how that will turn out come my Saturday morning weigh-in.
We shall see.
