I know this sounds weird, but I forgot to have supper last night. I didn't even realize it till bedtime. And I felt great. Woke up feeling great. I ate just before noon today out of principle, because I am going to go out errand-running and didn't want to push myself too hard. But it was out of principle. I still felt fine and unhungry. Reprised yesterday's meal because I liked it so much, this time with garden-fresh cherry tomatoes that are ripening on my counter. FIL grows a lot of tomatoes...
No new low today, but I find that when I am putting so little into my digestive tract, it is in no particular hurry to empty out the little that is there. But I held the line, which probably means a small weight loss overall. No two-pound bounce-up, like so often happens after a new low. If I continue to feel fine, I will keep pushing a little. I would kind of like to lose the next 12 pounds in less than a year.
Thanks CM. I don't know what I did to turn your light bulb on, but so much the better. I will check those articles out after my errand-running.

We chisel a little off here, a little off there, and in the end it means something. And that way, our skin sags less and we don't have to watch our weight ballooning up again right away, as happens to most people who take it off too fast.

More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.
