For those of you interested in my JUDDDing, here are the numbers for the last four weeks.
Quick recap: I began Alternate Day Fasting on March 5th, 2013. It was to give my digestive system a rest, from what has since been diagnosed by my doctor as IBS. Not sure, but we're working with that.
On March 5th I was 202.0.
On April 3rd I was 193.0
Here are the daily numbers since then. Weights taken the day after an Up Day are [B][B]bolded[/B][/B].
I added a few more days to this set, since I had three Up Days in a row near the end of April. I wanted to see how the recovery from that went. Pretty well, I think, though the loss from yesterday I believe to be related to something undesirable I ate last night, which necessitated a quick trip to the bathroom.
But I am willing to call the end of the second four weeks as a solid 188.5, which is a further 4.5 pounds, just over my expected weight loss of one pound per week. If these extra few pounds stay off through May, I will be glad to claim them then. It would be very heartening to not go up out of the 180s again. :)
...than it isn't true.
Our neighbor came yesterday morning and picked up Chica for her travelling shots.
There was scratching at the door just a few minutes ago, and it was her, but the neighbor and his two other dogs were in their front yard, so I passed her back over. Once she gets used to those boy dogs, she'll have fun bossing them around. But it is funny that she came running right over when she got into her front yard. :) She ran into the house when I opened the door, and Salem and Chloe started barking behind the gate. She zipped over to them and they touched noses through the bars. After I took her back out, Salem and Chloe were quite anxious to figure out where she went.
Thanks for sharing the data. I love data. And, it's nice to see your trend line...that it's not linear down, but it's very definitely going down. Congrats on the great losses:)
[QUOTE=RMS123;1181240] I love data. [/QUOTE]
Honey is going to make me an Excel graph for my numbers that I can hopefully post. Wait until you see the graphics! :)
Those graphs are so much fun! It is great to see your progress in such a way.
Chica loves you!
I wish you could keep Chica.
I like seeing the trend. 6 lbs loss for a month is pretty good. Nice downward trend.
Must be two-for-one day at MDA... click the submit button once and get two posts!
Here's how yesterday went:
Up at 6:30
2:00 4oz salmon, 1t mayo
5:45 4oz salmon, 2t mayo
Water: 9 glasses
Bed at 10:00
I seem to be solidly in the 180s, and though I try to keep the weight loss numbers to a vague murmur in the background, I can't help but be EXCITED!
Learned a new skill over the weekend(hence the avatar picture showing up on my posts) and today I am going for another one(involving getting chunks of text from one place, to another, to another). Slowly, Sabine crawls through the open door of the computer age!
I think Chica DOES love us, but she can love her old family, too, especially now that she has those two other dogs. It was only after her companion, Chico, died, that she needed us. We are trying to stay philosophical. I keep reminding myself, 'I am not looking for a third dog!'
We went to see 'Jack the Giant Slayer' last night at the Dollar Theater, and enjoyed it. The giants were very well done. I liked that Fi, Fie, Fo, and Fum were NAMES of giants. :)
Having my Money Goals Support Group meeting this morning. Also known as, a good reason to eat salmon at IKEA day.
You go to IKEA for the meeting? That sounds dangerous or perfect. Not sure which. lol
